After completing my ND Diploma in Food Service Management, I started my career in the hotel industry with great enthusiasm. I gained valuable experience in hospitality operations in both Food & Beverage and Rooms Division Management which led to my appointment as Hotel General Manager of the luxury 5* Villa Via Granger Bay Hotel, now known as Radisson Blu Cape Town. 

In 1999 I formed a partnership and opened IRT Solutions, a recruitment agency specializing in hospitality recruitment. As time evolved, I then launched Karen Tupper Recruitment in 2012 where I am actively involved in the management and day to day operation of the business. My love for the hospitality industry and diversity of the people that forms part of it fuels my passion to assist candidates and clients in an honest, trustworthy and professional manner.

I joined Karen Tupper Recruitment in 2017 when I found my love for sourcing professional talent and matching it to the clients’ requirements. I have gained a vast amount of experience in sourcing professional candidates in hotels, guest houses, upmarket bars, restaurants as well as corporate and has successfully placed candidates across South Africa and Internationally.

I am responsible for advertising various positions, screening CVs, interviewing possible candidates, submitting references and setting up interviews with the clients and candidates. My dedication and determination to provide great service is what allows me to source the best talent needed for the position!
