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 of 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
