High quality Chefs are in as much demand as at the height of the boom. So where’s this demand for Chefs? Australia! The great news is that TOPCHEFS can now help you get there, get work there and get a four year visa there, which leads to permanent residence after only two years. Sound like a deal to you? Read on…
Chefs Employment and Work Permits for Australia
We’ve put together some useful resources for Chefs holding an Irish or UK passport, resources which we hope will take much of the guess work out of what’s involved in getting a Chef Job and creating a new life in Australia. Before you leave the northern hemisphere behind you we’ll do our best to make sure you’re in good shape for success. We know chefs and in the past we worked with local recruitment agents, on the ground in Australia, who worked with us in eliminating much of the uncertainty and stress involved in getting that job and visa sponsorship. Nowadays we work on a direct to employer basis only. What does this mean for you as a chef who’s planning on finding a job in Australia? In theory it means we’ll be handling lower volumes of jobs than when we were partnered with Australian agents. It also means we’ll be retaining more control over the process and types of jobs we’ll accept. From a quality control point of view this is what we want and something that is harder to control when working with distant recruitment agencies.
It also means that we’re throwing open some of the chef immigration resources that we previously held behind a password protected portal. So if you’d like to run a free 457 Visa application simulation to get a feel for the type of official immigration questionnaires which lie ahead of you don’t have to wait. Simply get over here and once you’ve gathered together the information needed to complete the Chef’s 457 Visa application simulation page, where you can complete the type of red tape you’ll likely face later on; once completed, a copy will be auto forwarded to you [assuming you didn’t skip the email field]. This is excellent practice to get in, immigration involved a lot of form filling, and a useful reference document to have. Bear in mind though that it’s purely a simulation and that the real thing may differ from the simulation, although we hope not by too much.
Perhaps you’ve already dived into our general Chef CV Resources; if you haven’t then we strongly recommend a visit. Nonetheless when applying for Chef Jobs in Australia there are special considerations you, as a chef, will need to take into account in order to ensure that your Chef CV is optimised for Australian employers. That’s why we’ve created this page for you, complete with a downloadable Chef CV template for your use and optimised for use when applying for chef jobs to Australian employers.
We know this whole process places a lot of demands on chefs who already have a lot on their minds, that’s why, right from our foundation, we’ve had expert relocation and immigration advice on hand in-house. Our Chefs to Australia project takes that one stage further, we now have such expertise in Australia too, which provides you with an unmatched end to end service.
This Chefs to Australia immigration resource package isn’t aimed at those looking to take a gap year break from the routine or indeed those eager just to get a little experience of the fine dining scene down under. Yes Australia is fantastic, yes it has great restaurants, yes the cities are vibrant and exciting and yes the beaches among the most stunning in the world; however this resource package, and employers we’ll be working with, is squarely aimed at experienced chefs who are serious about a long term or permanent stay only. Can you say yes to that?
If the answer is yes and if you’re thinking along these lines then you’ll want to know more. We want to tell you more too, so please register
