Employee Assistance Programme

We have teamed up with Hospitality Action to offer free confidential Hospitality Action logoadvice, support and assistance for all our CJUK chefs and employees.

Here at CJUK, we are always striving to improve your interim chef experience and understand that working in the hospitality industry, whilst rewarding, can sometimes be very demanding.

As a result, we now offer an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which is a totally free service available to all our Chefs whenever they need it.

Free services you can access through the EAP

Assistance 
Through the website, assistance sheets and the experts available on the free assistance telephone line, you will be fully supported 24/7. Assistance resources include information on topics including;

    • Improving health and well-being
    • Dealing with financial pressures
    • Managing working life
    • Helping to overcome personal challenges
    • Dealing with alcohol or drug issues
    • Legal issues

Counselling
Hospitality Action can arrange a series of telephone or face-to-face sessions close to where you live or work via their network of counsellors across the UK.

Legal Information and Guidance
You can receive clear, simple information about legal matters, suggest what steps to take and whom to approach to gain further advice.

Debt Advice
To help you take control of any money issues, you’ll be provided with immediate access to a full range of debt advice and assistance solutions as well as benefits advice if appropriate.

Alcohol and Drug Support
The hospitality industry has significantly more people facing addiction problems than the rest of the UK population. This could relate to alcohol, drugs, gambling or other addiction issues. Experts from Hospitality Action have considerable experience helping people resolve their drug and alcohol issues .

Hardship Grants
If you meet the support criteria, you may be able to access hardship grants for particular problems. In 2017, Hospitality Action will provide over £600,000 in grants and services to people who are working or have retired from the industry.

Parenting Helpline
You can access a FREE call with an experience advisor to talk through any parenting concerns. Topics covered include, pregnancy and birth, childcare options, single parenting and shared parenting, sleep challenges, teenage challenges and keeping children safe and monitoring use of technologies.

Whistle-blowing Service
If you’re concerned about a work related issue that you consider to be harmful or a serious misconduct issue but don’t feel able or comfortable to report this to a manager, EAP will take the details from you and give speedy feedback to the employer anonymously so that action can be taken.

How to access EAP

You can access any of the services now, it’s totally free to you and completely confidential. Nobody at CJUK will know you have used the service unless you want to tell us. There is no limit to the amount of times you can contact the EAP and help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

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.

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

- 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
