If you have vacancies for German staff or are looking for a new permanent or temporary position using your languages, our Stammtisch member Ali Guezel might be a good first point of call. Originally from Austria, Ali moved to the region in 2002, having having previously worked in the hotel and tourism industry. This included a three year stay at a hotel in Guernsey and a 4-year stint onboard two cruise ships, responsible for a team of five representatives and the smooth running of the day-to-day cruise operation and the shore-excursion sales revenue.
On arrival in Newcastle, Ali found work as a telesales cruise specialist for MyTravel in North Shields, before moving on to Convergys/American Express as an account manager. Two years ago Ali and a friend decided to set up a German language recruitment agency (his friend had previously set up French Recruitment), primarily for companies in the UK, looking to recruit professionals with German language skills. Since then, Ali has developed working relationships with some prestigious companies across the United Kingdom and has thousands of German speaking candidates on his books.
