I found ‘Chefs for Chefs’ details online at a time when we were struggling to find skilled chefs and haven’t looked back since as we have found their service to be excellent.

Their understanding of the business needs and knowledge of the industry enables them to provide us with high caliber applicants. They are professional, honest and reliable and I would not hesitate in recommending their services to anyone.

They are always well organised throughout the recruiting process and keeps us regularly informed and updated on any issues which may occur. He has been able to provide us with a strong caliber of candidates and I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a supplier of staff.

"In the current staffing crisis hoteliers find themselves in, extra importance is placed on trustworthy agents to find the right candidates in a timely manner. 
During the opening of Manor House, Lindley, which required an initial team of 40 employees to be taken on within a two month period, the team at Chefs for Chefs have provided exactly that. We were impressed that any candidates sent from Chefs for Chefs fit the brief perfectly, and as a result helped the successful recruitment of a quality team. Months down the line, all have passed probation and have quickly established themselves as stars in the making within their respective domains.”
