Chefs In Scotland offers the following three services:

  1. Advertising
  2. Relief chefs
  3. Permanent placements

1) Advertising

You can advertise your chef vacancy or vacancies on our website and candidates will apply to you directly. The advert will remain on our website for 28 days. There is no other fee if you employ a chef who has contacted you directly via our website.

The cost of this is as follows:

2) Relief Chefs

We can try to organise relief chefs at short notice. You pay the relief chef an arranged hourly rate for a minimum of forty hours per week. You also provide clean single accommodation. Travelling expenses must be paid once in and out subject to the completion of the work stint, public transport at cost price, by car is 35p per mile. The arrangement fee payable to Chefs In Scotland is £70 plus V.A.T per week per chef for up to a maximum of 10 weeks. The most we would charge for placing a relief chef with you is £700 plus V.A.T.

If the chef takes a permanent position with you, we will charge an additional fee of up to £200 plus VAT if it is a Head Chef position. For Sous chef or Chef de partie, no other fee is due. We will invoice as relief in preference to permanent if that is the way the chef becomes employed.

3) Permanent Placements

We are happy to try to undertake permanent recruitment taking a "fee of interest" up front which costs the same as an advert. The "fee of interest" is then deducted from any permanent recruitment fee as below.

As we are mainly a chef recruitment agency if you post a chef advert we will post a front of house or kitchen porter advert for free.
