Review:

Hosco offers employers access to a global network of hospitality professionals and leading hospitality schools, which also makes it a great portal for finding top graduates from all over the world. The platform is membership-based and while joining is completely free, users must purchase credits or a premium membership subscription to post jobs.

With an international reach, bespoke hiring solutions, and a range of useful industry resources, the platform offers U.K. employers an attractive, feature-rich hospitality recruitment solution for building an international workforce. The website receives over 300,000 visits each month and, at the time of writing, lists over 11,000 U.K. vacancies.

Pros:

  • Hosco is a free job posting site dedicated to the hospitality industry.
  • The platform allows employers to create detailed company profiles.
  • Employers have access to Hosco consultants and tailored recruitment plans for mass hiring.
  • The employer account dashboard includes an analytics page to monitor posts and profile traffic.
  • The premium plan distributes jobs to Hosco members and over 400 partner hospitality schools.
  • Employers have access to the candidate database of over 1.5 million members with the premium plans.
  • The platform integrates with employers' applicant tracking systems (ATS).
  • Hosco automatically screens candidates and matches them with job opportunities.
  • The site features a number of employer resources, such as job descriptions, HR trends, and recruitment tips.
  • The platform features an app for both iOS and Android.

Cons:

  • Job posts are not syndicated to other job boards for increased exposure.
  • The platform lacks social media promotion.
  • The company lacks a local U.K. customer support number.

Reputation:

Hosco has mixed reviews on Trustpilot and has a rating of 1.9 out of 5 stars. Some users praised the platform as a useful career resource, while others complained the website was a scam, having issues with account creation, deletion, and scammer emails.

Hosco vs. Harri:

Like Hosco, Harri is a job posting site that caters to the hospitality industry. The platform primarily focuses on the U.S. and U.K. markets, whereas Hosco has a greater presence internationally. Harri charges US$78.00 per job post, while Hosco offers both free and paid options, making it the more budget-friendly option for employers.

Hosco vs. CatererGlobal:

Hosco and CatererGlobal both offer global hospitality recruitment solutions, including access to a candidate database and employer branding services. Hosco is the more affordable platform thanks to its free job posting plan, whereas CatererGlobal charges £125.00 +VAT for a job post. However, CatererGlobal offers social promotion, which Hosco lacks.

Hosco vs. Culinary Agents:

Culinary Agents is a U.S.-based company that caters to the hospitality industry in the U.S., the U.K., France, and Italy. While not as far-reaching as Hosco, Culinary Agents is a great option for U.K. employers as it is competitively priced compared to other local niche portals, and distributes posts to more than 500 sites, which Hosco does not.
