Our approach

Our approach

Gecko Hospitality teams up with a client looking for a candidate, like you, and work to understand your company culture, business vision, management philosophy and compensation structure. Together, we hash out the scope of the position(s) you require and agree on key job skills and qualities candidates need to be successful within your company.

We focus on your ideal candidate and use our almost 20 years of experience to thoroughly screen, interview and present  the best to you.

Once we’ve found your perfect candidate(s) and you’re ready to make an offer, we’ll walk you and your new employees through a smooth and productive transition.

  3. Gecko Hospitality requires expressed consent by candidates to be presented to a client for a position.
  4. All confidential client information is kept confidential.

I wanted to follow up with you on the candidate that you recommend for our Embassy Suites in Destin, Florida. WOW, she is awesome. I actually visited the property last week and we went out to make sales calls and she is great. She is professional, friendly and not afraid to knock on anyone's door. She was the perfect fit for our team there.

I appreciate all your efforts in finding us the perfect fit. You made everything SO easy and saved me a lot of time and searching. I will definitely be calling you again should I need another "perfect fit" at another of one of my hotels. I have also shared your information with some of my counter parts.

Thank you again Tom, it was a pleasure to work with you.
