How do we attract such talented chefs?
As a professional catering and hospitality recruitment business we use a whole range of candidate attraction techniques to attract talented chefs. In fact, unlike the majority of our competitors who only seem to scratch the surface when it comes to talent acquisition, we are very diverse in our approach. You see, the majority of our competitors spend all their time searching on Caterer.com. While this job board is useful to a recruiter, it is only one method of attracting talented chefs and the downside to it is that it is trawled by nearly every recruiter out there so inevitably, they are all dipping into one pool and finding the same candidates.
Our professional consultants are trained to take advantage of a wide selection of candidate attraction techniques that focus on un-tapped recruitment methods. Using a combination of these methods enables us to rise head and shoulders above the competition and find the cream of the crop in terms of chef talent.
Our candidate attraction methods include:
- The Recruitment Studio Rewards Scheme
- Proactively asking for referrals on every call we make or take
- Advertising in magazines, in the press, mailshots, and Job Centres nationwide
- Our in-house recruitment software (Eclipse)
- Specialised Talent Acquisition
- Our exceptional service delivery

Once the recruitment process is complete, we don’t stop there! After you have selected your preferred candidates from the top 3 sent to you, we can then arrange a face to face interview, telephone interview, Skype Interview, working trial or even a combination of all of these decision making aspects. We will see this process through to the end conclusion, providing expert advice and feedback to ensure you recruit only the very best chef for your operation.
What they say…
During my last recruitment drive I have, inevitably had to work closely with lots of different agencies trying to find the right candidate for the available positions. Out of these agencies it has been The Recruitment Studio that has consistently provided an above average level of candidate for a range of different departments. In the past I have found most agencies specialise in one department and as such use various agencies for the various departments. Now my first port of call is to email The Recruitment Studio and give them first opportunity to fill the vacancy. I would highly recommend their expertise at helping fill the important positions.
