WHAT WE DO
WE SOURCE THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE IN THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY FOR OUR CLIENTS.
We specialise in middle management, senior management and board appointments, whether permanent, interim or on project based contracts. Our remits include assignments on a national and international basis and cover corporations searching for travel management/ travel category procurement staff and travel industry suppliers looking for staff in the TMC, airline, hotel, ground transport, payment solutions and travel technology sectors.
We forge long-term relationships with clients by working to understand their commercial strategies and long-term objectives. This means we can draw their attention to high-calibre candidates when they become available, even if there is no active recruitment activity taking place.
Our reputation is everything to us. We are renowned for integrity and professionalism. We treat every client and candidate as we would expect to be treated ourselves: with respect and courtesy.
THE SIRIUS TEAM HAS HELD SENIOR ROLES WITHIN THE CORPORATE TRAVEL INDUSTRY.
That gives us invaluable real-life experience of the qualities and attributes required for each role, and an understanding of which skills are transferable into different sectors. It also means we are extensively networked into the highest levels of the industry, providing unrivalled access to the best potential candidates. We recognise that the best industry talent is often not ‘active’ and not ‘on the market’ and that by utilising our network, we can ensure an extensive and thorough search is achieved on each assignment.
Our roots in the travel industry mean we fully understand how the recruitment process can consume your time. We also appreciate the frustration of being bombarded with CVs for unsuitable candidates - we have been in your shoes! Our philosophy, therefore, is to provide quality over quantity of candidates. We operate an in-depth pre-screening process and only recommend candidates with the right credentials.
We are networked globally and utilise our associate network to ensure we have real-time access to local talent with insight to market conditions. Assignments have included roles based in the US, UAE, Africa, Norway, Germany and The Netherlands.
OUR CLIENTS ARE ANY ORGANISATION SIMPLY LOOKING FOR THE MOST TALENTED PEOPLE IN THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY.
Clients vary and so do their needs. We work with a range of clients from specialist SMEs in the travel sector to multi-national corporations. Whether it is sourcing a travel buying expert for a procurement team or a management position for a travel supplier, we know the skills and experience required and therefore the best candidates in the industry.
Our individualised and personal approach ensures we work with our clients to fully understand their brief and culture of their organisation. This ensures we find the right match for each assignment.Contact us
