  • Restaurants

  • Care & Educational Establishments

How do we work together?

To be able to provide you with the best Chefs and truly understand how your business works, we will always make the effort to meet you and your team personally so we can make the best fit for your brigade.

Over the years, we have built a strong network of professional and passionate Chefs who have gone through our rigorous recruitment process to ensure you are provided with the most talented Chefs in the industry – some of them have even worked with us for over 15 years!

CJUK

The fast-paced nature of temporary work in hospitality means that a job can be called in at any time then filled within minutes. This means not all our available jobs make it to our advertising pages.

If you’re a Chef, Cook or Manager interested in hearing about temporary work, we would love to speak with you!

Who are we?

Since 1990, CJUK has specialised in placing talented temporary staff to cover sickness, holidays and busy periods at short notice. Our team of recruitment specialists personally match these professionals to hotels, pubs, restaurants and contract catering companies all over the UK.

What’s it like to work with us?

December’s Chef of the Month, Scott said: "The team in the office make regular contact with you, they do their utmost to place me in an environment that is suited to me and unlike many full-time jobs, my career doesn’t stagnate and always progresses.”

We have a brigade of loyal, hardworking and talented Chefs, Cooks and Managers across the UK who do a brilliant job but there isn’t always enough of them to go around! This is why we’re always interested in speaking with people who may be a good fit for us.

The levels we cover are Chef de Partie to Head Chef and the types of places you could be working in are Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs and care facilities. You would always be given thorough details of a job before you’re expected to pack your knives up and head out on the road.

The length of contract depends on the reason for cover but could be anything from one week in length to ongoing contracts, we’ll keep in touch with you the whole time to ensure you’re happy and we’ve made the right fit for you. Once we know your contract is coming to an end, it’s then on us to get looking at your next contract so you can just worry about keeping up your great work!

What’s in it for you?

- An hourly rate from £11ph – £15ph
- A guaranteed minimum of 40 hours work per week, with the potential to pick up more
- Complementary accommodation is provided for most jobs, otherwise you would commute to work daily
- Generous travel allowances for most contracts
- Weekly pay
- Holiday pay accrued on top of your hourly rate
- Double time paid on Bank Holidays for most contracts
- Become part of the close-knit CJUK brigade and our community
- The freedom to choose how, when and where you work
- Time off when you like, for a holiday, the kid’s Christmas nativity or just to take a rest. You don’t need to justify taking time off
- Be put forward for monthly awards
- Access to 24/7 helpline with Hospitality Action
- Receive goodies and rewards
- Invites to exclusive social events
- The chance to become a CJUK Ambassador

Are you interested?

Our dedicated team of Account Managers have built long lasting relationships with our clients over the years to really understand their business and existing team. This enables them to personally match you and your skills with the right kitchen.
