Welcome To The Chef Recruitment Agency!
Finding the right chef’s job demands the same care and attention you bring to the kitchen every day. We recognize that chefs warrant specialist recruitment attention when it comes to negotiating their future job moves. That’s why our business is staffed by recruitment specialists with backgrounds in both catering and executive placement. Their recruitment expertise is augmented by the energetic input of our own kitchen specialist, with twenty one years experience of working as a chef; someone who’s worked on the other side of the recruitment divide, just like you.
Chefs: You Are The Success Factor in Catering
We believe chefs are the most critical staffing factor that determine whether or not a food business succeeds. This is something with which many chefs would agree; it’s also something which, while widely recognized within the catering and hospitality industry, is seldom acknowledged.
It is though something we acknowledge. By constantly emphasizing chefs value to the catering industry, and by encouraging our clients to likewise acknowledge this, we aim to better represent chefs than the many general catering recruitment agencies in the market.
This is why chefs are the only catering staff we represent, we can promote their interests with discretion, sincerity and, most of all, without compromise.
Why a specialist chef recruitment agency?
Because we approach chef recruitment differently to conventional catering employment agencies; because the difference in our approach to recruitment is designed to get the best jobs for the chefs best suited to those jobs. Yes, similar to conventional catering recruitment agencies, you can, and should, check back with us regularly to see what jobs we have on offer. However, unlike most conventional recruitment agencies, we get to know Chefs at every stage of their career cycle, not just when their decision to move job is imminent. That’s why the sooner we get to know about you, the sooner we can begin connecting you with the type of jobs you’ll want to have.
Get Your Chef Resume/Curriculum Vitae to Us
So send us your Resume/Curriculum Vitae now, rather than later. Chances are the type of job which really suits you won’t be found on any catering jobs board on any given day, or even any given month. In fact the ideal position for you probably only arises very occasionally, but when that special position does arise the chances are chef recruitment specialists like ourselves will know about it first. Doesn’t it make sense that we should know about you too? To make sure we do, simply visit our CV-Resume Upload page. When you get there all you have to do is provide some straightforward contact details and upload your CV-Resume.
That’ll help us understand where you’ve been and where you’d like to go, then we go to work for you. Rest assured that at all times we will conduct our work only according to your wishes and abiding, at all times, by the standards of the National Recruitment Federation to whom we’re affiliated. In plain English that means your Resume/CV doesn’t end up “being shopped” all over town. We’ll be in touch with you about suitable chef jobs as they arise.
