What our Clients say...


‘Gary and the team at Red Star have remained our preferred agency for the last 10 years.  The first call we make is always to Red Star. I trust their judgement on who they feel is the right fit and have never been disappointed by any of the candidates put forward.  Pricing has been competitive and service strong.  They seem to have got me out of a few potential scrapes!  Well done to Red Star and I’m very happy to recommend’. 

James Hiley-Jones, Area General Manager, Careys Manor and Senspa, and The Montagu Arms


'I have had the great pleasure of dealing with Gary Peck both in recruiting staff for me and using him to find a position for myself. His knowledge of the industry and who’s who is phenomenal.
I have found him to be very professional and extremely astute in matching the right candidate for the right position. I cannot recommend him highly enough.'

Tom Lewis, previously GM of Gilpin Lodge, Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, Studley Priory


'I have used RSA over the last five years for the whole cross section of Supervisory to Senior Management Positions, and I have to say that for my type of Business they come up with compatible candidates each and every time.  This bespoke CV selection then leads to attentive and informed advice from the RSA team, which ultimately leads to more of my recruitment being done through them.  One of the most refreshing things about RSA is the "after sales service".  On occasions when things have not gone to plan, the back up is there to ensure things are rectified as soon as possible, with very much a 'no quibble' policy.  I would have no hesitation in recommending RSA to both Clients and Candidates who aspire to work in the quality end of the Hotel market.' 

Mathew Griffin, General Manager
