Career Management



The International Association of Hotel Executives will have access to our Career Management Centre (CMC) for the benefit of its Members. The continued growth of the international hotel industry has created a high demand for executive talent, and our Association wants to assist members with independent advice and support in developing personal development plans aimed at them achieving their career aspirations, and by positioning them to take advantage of suitable opportunities as they arise.  Imagine your own Career Management Centre focussed on helping you plan your next career move, and providing you with a wider access to job opportunities.

  • Online CV for upload into CMC database

    Once an Executive becomes a Member, he/she can indicate an interest in becoming a candidate by completing a specially designed CV online, which will enable us to begin the process of creating a comprehensive profile of each individual for inclusion in our CMC database.

  • Readiness index to be agreed with the Executive, and where appropriate, their GM

    Each Executive will be asked to advise the CMC of their future career aspirations and timing for the CMC to match with potential opportunities that meet with their specified criteria.  Where required CMC qualified staff will work in establishing a personal development plan with the candidate to ensure they are ready for their next career move.

  • Candidates may undergo online psychometric testing if required to increase understanding of their innate qualities and abilities

    Where it is determined with the agreement of the Executive that a number of online tests be undertaken to strengthen their candidacy, and highlight a number of specific skills and/or abilities, then these can be provided, and the ensuing reports shared with the Executive, prior to inclusion in their individual file.

  • Interim interviews conducted in person or via SKYPE and reports written for each individual

    An interim interview will be undertaken with each Executive to further consolidate their candidacy and to enable CMC staff to prioritise candidates for the position.

  • Candidates sorted into various categories based on professional experience, knowledge and skills, capability, mobility, cultural fit, language capability if applicable, personal profile and individual aspirations

    Our CMC system will sort candidates based on information provided in the various fields contained within the CV, from the psychometric testing, and from an in-depth interview. The system will then create a file, which would be uploaded into the most appropriate category/classification available within the CMC.

  • Each Executive within a defined category that matches the job brief to be prioritised based on their readiness index and match with job brief

    As opportunities arise, qualified and experienced CMC staff will consolidate potential candidates and alert them to the opportunity to determine if they wish to be considered. All information contained within the brief will be shared confidentially with the Executive concerned, to allow them to make an informed decision on whether they wish to proceed. 

  • Once the process is completed, three candidates to be decided on and presented for each job brief

    The CMC will present the client with a minimum of three candidates for each opportunity. The CMC will provide a highly professional and detailed report, including an executive summary, containing our recommendations and the reasons why we consider each candidate to be a match to the job brief. At no time during the process, will each individual candidate be made aware of the other CMC candidates being considered by the client.

  • Advice to General Managers advising them of their exclusive access to the CMC and its ability to deliver highly suitable candidates who have been carefully matched to the job brief.

    Once we have a reasonable number of Executives who have registered as potential candidates, we will be in a position to assist General Managers and hotel companies with a strong supply of potential candidates from our database.

  • Terms and Conditions relevant to placement and or referral

    Preferred arrangements can be negotiated on volume, but the CMC will be well placed to offer highly competitive rates on individual assignments. Referral rates will also be available.

  • Placement guarantees

    The CMC will provide a six month guarantee on all placements.  Should a candidate not meet the expectations of the client at any time within the first six months of his/her appointment, the CMC will provide the client with another three candidates for their consideration.

  • Exclusivity arrangements with preferred clients

    The CMC will be open to discussions regarding exclusivity arrangements on the basis that the clients guarantee a certain volume of placements over an agreed period. Exclusivity agreements will initially be for a period of two years, which may be extended by mutual agreement.

  • Availability of Executive candidates / Retirees for interim assignments

    The CMC will also offer recently retired or Executives between assignments, or awaiting reassignment, opportunities for short-term or interim assignments that may from time to time be requested by a client.
