A fit for any commercial kitchen

A smooth-running professional kitchen needs a high performing team to make things happen. When a kitchen is understaffed, this has a directly negative impact on the service level. Struggling to manage orders, quality of food and maintain optimal service are all the signs that a kitchen needs an extra pair of hands. At ChefHire, we understand the urgency of finding a solid chef replacement as soon as possible and how this can make all the difference to your kitchen’s service delivery.  

Reliable Hospitality Staff

We work with many businesses that are based in regional areas. ChefHire stands out as we can guarantee your new hire will not only turn up but is fully trained and ready to start immediately.  We look to find you the perfect fit for a permanent position.


Our end-to-end service ensures we can manage the interviews and screening processes, saving you time.


If you need a permanent chef, hospitality staff or if you require labour hire to cover emergencies, annual leave or large functions - we can help.

We catch up with Chef Luke Mangan and get his opinion on the future of the industry

Have you ever found your kitchen understaffed?


The stress this causes is immeasurable. On top of that, the story of chef’s quitting or not showing up are not unheard of.  


An understaffed kitchen often results in disgruntled customers and even bad reviews posted online. It only takes one bad review on social media to tarnish your reputation.


Rather than struggling with an understaffed kitchen, you now have a better option - call up ChefHire. Finding hospitality staff is what we do. Whether it's an emergency, annual leave cover, or a more permanent hire, we’re here to help.


The kitchen is a source of inspiration

The number one reason a chef is dissatisfied at work is an understaffed kitchen. This then comes across in the food, speed of service, the mood of the other staff, and of course, customer satisfaction.


We recently worked with an established winery, helping them restore their reputation that they had worked hard to establish over 30 years. After the chef suddenly quit, they decided to cope with an understaffed team. The long wait times and poor-quality food resulted in a mass of negative online feedback. After cancelled weddings and functions, they called ChefHire to help, and luckily, we got them back on track.


One terrible service can ruin 30 years of hard work


It takes one bad instance to tarnish the reputation you have worked hard to create. Don’t run the risk of being understaffed. The costs are immeasurable.


You are not alone. ChefHire is here to help


Are you looking for a last-minute emergency, annual leave, or a permanent solution? ChefHire is the ideal solution for you.

"We have been using ChefHire to fill gaps in our kitchen team whilst we recruit and have found their services to be excellent. 


Their response times are quick and can normally get chefs with very little notice. 

The quality of chefs has always been to a high standard and ChefHire are quick to rectify if there are any problems


 I would definitely recommend Chef hire if you need kitchen cover."
