Cara Burger


From a young age, I’ve had a passion for travel and adventure, which led me to study hotel management in Switzerland and work in various hospitality outlets in Zanzibar and beyond. Now based in Zimbabwe, I discovered my interest in recruitment while helping a former employer source management staff for his hotel. I joined Kendrick and have found connecting with candidates and helping them find their ideal career opportunities to be the most fulfilling aspect of my work. If you’re seeking your next big break in hospitality, please reach out – I’d be happy to help.

Justine Brown


Having taught English in South Korea, my longing for natural spaces inspired me to pursue a career in hospitality and conservation. I began with Field Guide training in 2010 and have since worked in various positions in African lodges, gaining valuable knowledge and industry insight. Now, back on my family farm in South Africa, I’m eager to apply my skills and experiences to this new chapter. I love the diversity of hospitality and would be thrilled to help you find your own “happy place” within the industry.

Kerri Snow


With 13 years of exposure to Luxury Hotels and their operational requirements, I have developed a profound interest in helping those around me understand their potential and reach their professional goals.

I have been fortunate to open two magnificent hotels throughout my career, and in doing so developed a keen fascination in sourcing the best candidates for our positions. Those that will execute the company’s vision while doing what they are passionate about.

In sourcing the right candidates for our property is where my passion for helping people to land their dream job developed, which in turn, led me to Kendrick Recruitment. Here, I endeavour to source excellent, service orientated candidates and motivate their applications to our top quality clients.

If you need help with acquiring your next dream position, please reach out to me!

From a young age, I was captivated by the world of hospitality as my father immersed himself in this dynamic industry. Witnessing his joy while interacting with people from diverse backgrounds and exploring extraordinary places, I knew that my own path would lead me to become a part of this exciting field. The most fulfilling aspect, undoubtedly, is the opportunity to assist individuals in securing their dream positions at dream destinations. For me, recruiting isn’t just a job—it’s an exhilarating adventure
