Looking to find chefs in Ireland?
So you need to find chefs in Ireland. Where do you go to find chefs? It’s not always easy but in connecting with a specialist chef recruitment agency you’re making a great start.
If you’re an Irish Hotelier or General Caterer there’s a good chance that over the years you’ve developed a decent working relationship with at least one general catering recruitment agency or hospitality recruitment specialist. As one stop solutions many of these firms have been filling job vacancies for their clients with high degrees of reliability. Yet you’ve probably noticed that, while they’re successful at filling a wide variety of roles in your business, finding chefs is where they tend to struggle. We understand their difficulty and we understand yours too, you need to find a chef and you’re beginning to wonder if the general catering recruitment agencies you’ve been using are offering you the best results possible? In short the answer is probably no.
Chefs are different! This we know. Although it’s often something managers of catering businesses are reluctant to accept, the fact is that chefs, for the most part, consider themselves to be a species apart from virtually every other function in the catering business. There’s some of justification to this belief too as chefs generally train more, work in the most testing environments and are constantly under pressure to keep their skills updated. That’s one of the reasons so many of chefs prefer to entrust the management of their next career move to Chef Recruitment Specialists such as ourselves and not to a general catering recruitment agency. They know that when an employer needs to find a chef in Ireland they’re best positioned by being with us.
We’re good at placing chefs and a recent assignment brought this home to us when we were tasked by one client with filling four chefs roles (Head Chef, 2 Sous Chefs and a Chef De Partie). We weren’t working on this recruiting assignment very long before we discovered that we were competing against another general catering recruitment agency also based in Dublin. In fact the agency in question had marketed two of the roles as paying more than we had been guided by the client (and hence more than we marketed the jobs at); which should have put us at a minor disadvantage when it comes to attracting talented chefs. Yet despite this apparent handicap we found the chefs for all the job openings.
So if it’s chefs you need to find and if finding chefs is something you’re depending on then you’ll be better off contacting us.
While we find chefs of all grades the following list of chef categories is where we tend to excel:
- Executive Chef
- Head Chef
- Sous Chef
- Chef De Partie
- Chef Tournant
- Chef De Partie Pastry
- Pastry Chef
