CJUK Chef Stories

So many CJUK Chefs tell us that they were anxious about making that step away from a perm job, but since you did you’ve never looked back!

Working with CJUK has improved lives, allowed you to explore your dreams, set up new businesses, improved your skills as a chef, given you previous time with your family on Christmas morning, or simply enabled you to go to your first ever concert.

Every day our team hears stories from our chefs about what CJUK means to them. Some are funny or inspiring, and others just very simply sum up the benefits of being a CJUK chef. It isn’t a stepping stone; it is a bona fide career choice!
