Hey Chefs. Thank you for clicking on my ad to read more. I’m not here to do a sales pitch about why you should come and work for us and use all the slogans that you would have seen over and over again on Seek, Indeed, Café windows etc. Like you, I’m exhausted. Tired of ‘selling the dream’ to the wider culinary audience, tired of pretending that me, the recruiter is in the driving seat. I’m not. Chefs, it’s your time to set the rules.

Here’s a few tropes you would have encountered:

  • Work/Life Balance!! (Pretty sure that’s a lie)
  • Great Team Culture!! (What does that even mean?? A knock off beer?)
  • Work with the Best of the Best! (Who? Is Gordon Ramsay going be my boss? Would you want him to be your boss???)
  • Explore a Culinary Journey where we ‘think outside of the box’ (No, Heston will not be dropping in on the reg)
  • What I can tell you authentically is that:

    • We are passionate about what we do
    • When we meet a good egg, we know how to keep them
    • We value safety and will bend over backwards to ensure that you wear fewer blue band aids
    • We want to know your opinions and thoughts – this is a YES environment

    And why work for Chartwells?

    Chartwells provides bespoke fresh food solutions that are unique in the market across independent schools and universities. We are passionate about the role we play in supporting the physical and emotional well-being of students.

    We also offer a range of benefits including (but not limited to):

    • Health and well-being employee benefits to help look after you
    • Recognition programs including service and safety awards, regular team events, site-based benefits and company discounts
    • Immediate access to 100+ retail discounts accessible from your mobile
    • Multiple salary packaging options to help your dollar go further

    We want to hear from you!

    ‘Respect. Growth. Teamwork’ is our belief.
