Mario Perez Olea

Senior Consultant

Team: IT Sales & Technical

About me:  With over 7 years in recruitment, 5 of which I did with Hospitality and Hotels,  a background of over 10 years in catering and hospitality operations and 4 languages, I feel ideally placed to assist all my current and future prospect clients, in a strategic and smart search of quality professional individuals, for the appointments of permanent roles.

Early in my career I began working in London as a restaurant and special events waiter at Tate Modern Gallery before joining The Caprice Holdings, working at The Ivy Restaurant followed by The Marriott Residence club in Park Street as a Room Service Waiter. My passion for hospitality and events took me from a Food & Beverage Assistant Manager hotel and resort in Cornwall, to work for Oil & Gas, Royal Dutch Shell Ltd. at their head-offices, Shell Centre, Waterloo, London and stepped up to the role of Hospitality and Events Manager for a period of nearly 3 years, managing VVIP and international events from 10 people to 3000 people. Often managing events with international government officials and royalty from Europe and the Middle East.

I enjoy being an extension to my clients’ recruitment function, thoroughly understanding their needs, and the requirement for a swift solution.
