We’re delighted to announce Taragh M. O’Kelly is joining the TOPCHEFS team as consultant overseeing everything related to relocation and immigration. An acknowledged expert in the field of employment legislation, known for her skills in mediation and the design and implementation of employment policies, Taragh is nowadays more often called upon for her expertise as a Relocation and Immigration Consultant.
Taragh’s association with TOPCHEFS allows us to provide expertise in a vital area which most recruitment agencies can’t and which, in the current market, is much in demand. Welcoming Taragh to TOPCHEFS, Founder Vivienne Hall had this to offer, “when we first researched this market it was clear that Irish chefs now enjoy a reputation internationally and that some of them are taking advantage of this reputation to ride out the recession in more buoyant jobs markets abroad. Having determined that TOPCHEFS should be in the same places as Irish chefs, the need for an acknowledged expert with a background in relocation and immigration was apparent. Taragh was the immediate target and while I hoped we’d be able to persuade Taragh to join us at TOPCHEFS it was quite a relief when she said yes.”
According to Taragh, “Chefs moving abroad have a lot more to consider than landing the job and often underestimate the amount of red tape involved before the move is really theirs. In addition there’s another layer of complexity to face in the logistics of actually moving. While there are specialist relocation businesses in this field I’ve always believed that there’s a natural synergy between recruitment and relocation services. TOPCHEFS have the same idea and knowing the people behind this business persuaded me to get involved.”
