Or why is it so difficult to find chefs in Ireland
Finally! This week the Irish TImes has got to the question every catering recruitment consultant, especially those of us who specialize in recruiting chefs, has had to field many times:
“Why, in such a recessionary market, can’t I find any chefs?”
Some of the biggest names in the industry are looking for qualified chefs, including Shanahan’s on the Green, the Shelbourne Hotel and the Michelin-starred Malahide restaurant Bon Appetit. Even Masterchef judge Dylan McGrath has been recruiting staff for his Rustic Stone restaurant in Dublin. Recently the jobs.ie website listed more than 100 jobs around the country for chefs at a variety of levels.
