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?

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?
