CJUK CHEFS – What Sets Them Apart?

We are very proud of all our Chefs representing  us in the industry. It goes without saying that their skills and ability to work in a variety of roles is second to none and these key attributes are qualified at the selection process. But what’s really important to us is ensuring we capture the very best fit for attitude, behaviour and professionalism. This is massively important to us as it highlights the key to our success – our Chefs!

CJUK Elite Chefs are the crème de la crème of our brigade.

They are actively and positively representing us in the industry week in, week out. We very much see them as an extension of our team, but out there in the field doing great work on our behalf and we value them enormously. Could you make the grade?

CJUK Elite Chef Criteria:

  • Chefs love working for us, they gain experience in a wide range of sectors across this diverse and exciting industry whilst being paid by the hour and can be flexible in their role. Elite Chef status is awarded when our chefs have completed continuous service over a 6 month period with CJUK, show loyalty to us and always represent us in the industry first
  • Feedback is key, we want to ensure the service executed to our clients is first class and how CJUK Chefs perform on duty is critical. Elite Chef status is awarded when we receive 4 & 5 star feedback on CJUK Chefs from our valued clients
  • In every aspect of the work our Chefs complete, they always exhibit the Chefs Jobs UK 5 Core Values, which are:
