Following our recent relocation to Blackburn’s award-winning Cathedral Quarter, we have appointed a new Head of Marketing & Communications and a new recruiter to facilitate CJUK’s ongoing expansion.
Beckie Livesey is developing the company’s strategic marketing plan to strengthen the brand’s reputation and to build on our communications during an exceptionally exciting period of growth.
Before joining CJUK, Beckie worked in a variety of marketing roles starting from an Account Manager at a full-service marketing agency up to a Digital Marketing Specialist at an international engineering company.
Before completing her Journalism degree, she worked at the Ribble Valley Inns for five years and brings a multitude of marketing expertise and a real understanding of the hospitality industry to the team.
Emma Hargreaves also recently joined CJUK as a Recruiter after progressing from a Waitress to Front of House Manager over the course of ten years, bringing with her a wealth of industry knowledge, experience and passion.
With a focus on placing relief chefs in the Lake District, Emma is responsible for looking after the welfare of her clients and candidates to make sure they have the best possible experience with CJUK.
Katie Mellor, Director of Sales & Operations, said: “I am thrilled to welcome both Beckie and Emma to the CJUK team. Both have many years’ hospitality experience between them and are passionate about achieving growth for the business alongside the rest of the team.”
CJUK has continued to grow year-on-year after actively shifting our strategic intentions to focus on chefs and put them at the heart of the business, focusing on improving the employee experience by offering better pay, working conditions, employee engagement and more flexibility.
Katie added: “By putting the candidates at the centre of our business we have seen a marked increase in our customer satisfaction.
“Investing in schemes such as our Elite Chef programme and our Employee Assistance Programme means our chefs are happy working for us, but also our clients are continually impressed with the high quality of interim chefs we provide.”
CJUK has received various awards and accolades over the past few years because of its commitment to looking after its people and making a real difference in the hospitality industry.
The chef recruitment specialists are one of only four UK hospitality companies to be recognised as a Gold Investor in People employer and won the ‘Best Workforce Temporary Care Award’ in 2017 at the Recruiter Investing in Talent Awards.
We currently have an exciting opportunity for an ambitious Sales Person and Account Manager to join the CJUK team on our exciting growth journey. If you have a passion for hospitality and would like to come on board, please take a look at the job description and apply today!
