Chefoholics is a specialist recruitment consultancy supplying both Permanent, temporary and freelance chefs and Front of House staff for the Hospitality industry.

Chefoholics is a specialist recruitment consultancy supplying both permanent, temporary, freelance Chefs and Front of House staff for the hospitality industry. As consultants we have been supplying top quality staff to some of the finest venues locally and nationally from large pub chains to small independent restaurants, contract catering units and 5* hotels including multi Rosette and Michelin starred venues

Here at Chefoholics we want to work with a select group of clients to provide a professional and personal service. Bearing this in mind we aim to become the first point of contact for our clients as and when they have any recruitment needs whether it be in the kitchen or front of house.

Our consultants have over 20 years’ combined experience working in the catering and hospitality industry, giving us great insight into our client’s needs and requirements. This knowledge helps us to recruit successfully and we can refer you to some of our clients who would recommend our services.

As well as offering both permanent and temporary recruitment, Chefoholics can also provide the following services:


Retained search, also known as executive search and selection or head-hunting. Here we provide search services for senior, executive, or other highly compensated positions. All candidates are suitably qualified and we present them to our clients in confidence. We also investigate whether the candidates are open to new opportunities and conduct the interview process, job offers and salary negotiations.

For a retained search we work with the client exclusively, require an upfront retainer and typically charge 30 to 35 percent of the salary for the position. Payments are made according to milestones in the recruitment process, so a percentage of fees will be paid regardless of whether a hire is actually made.


With on-demand Recruitment Process Outsourcing we provide recruiting, sourcing and coordination on an as-requested basis rather than with long-term contracts. Companies use on-demand RPO for full-cycle recruiting or just for the aspects that they need, such as sourcing or recruitment coordination of interviews, candidate management and communications, reference and background checking and on-boarding.

On-demand RPO improves recruiting quality while saving money as companies get the benefits of experienced recruiting professionals but only pay for services required. Clients are not locked into contracts or contract payments, and can add or drop services at any time.


If you were to open a new venue, one or more of our Senior Consultants would work from your site to manage the full recruitment life cycle and endeavour to have your venue fully staffed for the opening date.
