we are living in truly exciting times for the hospitality and catering industry...

The huge variety of outlets and rapid rate of new openings means that chefs have never been more in demand. This has led to a huge increase in the use of agencies to fill the temporary recruitment needs of busy kitchens.


The process for filling placements once agencies are involved is seriously behind the times.

The Bookachef platform aims to take back control from agencies and recruiters and put the power back in the hands of those highly sought after chefs and the busy catering outlets that need them

We know that there is huge variation in the skills and experiences of chefs in the relief chef market and many chefs on full time contracts are working up to 80 hours a week for salaries based on a 40-hour rota. We believe that good chefs should be able to work when they want, where they want and charge a fair rate of pay based on skills and reviews.

We are working towards a future where working on an interim basis will become the norm for chefs that want to maximise their earnings while maintaining a healthy work life balance.
