Commercial Catering Agencies in the UK
Commercial catering agencies provide temporary and permanent staff to the catering industry, including chefs, kitchen porters, waiting staff, general managers, receptionists, and all the other staff needed to run a successful business within the food industry.
Catering staff are needed at a wide variety of types of organisation, from hotels, bars and restaurants, to schools and hospitals. They are also required at outdoor sporting events, festivals or concerts. Catering agencies can supply you with anything from a few key workers for a busy local restaurant, to a 100-strong team of catering professionals to provide the food for a large-scale sporting event.
Any restaurant will be highly-dependent for its success on consistently delivering food to a specific standard, as well as maintain the service its customers demand. The ability to deliver to these standards will therefore rely heavily on having the right staff in place at all times. In the demanding food industry, customers will not be impressed if you have to let them down because a key member of staff is ill.
It is here that a catering agency supplying temporary staff can be an essential resource, providing professional and dedicated food preparation and serving staff at short notice, to ensure your restaurant continues to run smoothly no matter what. The temporary staff provided can range from a kitchen porter, sous-chef right through to an experienced head chef.
For the busy restauranteur wanting to hire a new head chef, the decision of who to employ will be crucial for the future success of the restaurant. A commercial catering agency can take some of the stress and worry out of this important decision, using their recruitment and food industry knowledge and expertise to source the right staff for your business.
And if you are a job seeker, a catering agency can help whether you are looking for flexible temporary work or are an established high-flier within the food industry, seeking a career change. Catering agencies combine a knowledge of the latest developments within the industry, and contacts throughout all areas, from bars to sporting venues, Michelin-starred restaurants to leading takeaway chains, with recruitment expertise, to help you ensure your CV and interview technique are up to scratch.
