Good staff are the key to your success – that’s why we’re so committed to ensuring that you have the right staff, whether it’s temporary relief for a particularly busy period, or a permanent recruit.
I Need A Chef is a licensed chef agency in Brisbane that will put you in contact with the best chefs and kitchen staff. We offer a range of temporary and permanent staffing solutions for hospitality businesses of all shapes and sizes.
As hospitality veterans ourselves, we have a unique understanding of the kitchen dynamic, and can pick up on the less-known factors that most resumes simply can’t include.
And that means better placements between you and your kitchen staff!
Just because the position is temporary, it doesn’t mean we put any less effort into selecting the right chef or staff for your business!
Need a temporary chef to cover an upcoming absence or busy period? Our temp chefs are carefully vetted to ensure their skills and experience meet your demands.
We take the hard work out of hiring! I Need A Chef maintains a huge pool of pre-vetted hospitality professionals who are ready to begin working at short notice.
When it comes to permanent chef positions, we take great care to ensure you’re getting the best candidate. That’s why we offer a try before you buy policy, letting you trial applicants in the kitchen before committing!
Just imagine: fresh meals for all your guests, prepared on-the-spot by an expert chef.
Imagine no longer, because that’s what our private chef service offers. Add a dash of class and exclusivity to your next wedding, birthday or party with your very own private chef.
We aren’t like other hospitality agencies, we won’t match you randomly against the requests that come in – instead, we carefully consider the requirements, and compare them against your:
On top of that, we also make it our mission to offer chefs like you the best rates around, as well as excellent support and advice.
No more worrying whether or not the coming job is a good match for you – our experienced team ensures that each job you take from us leaves you satisfied, fulfilled and excited for the next shift!
While chefs may get all the glory, that doesn’t mean they’re the only ones we help. Hospitality is a large, diverse industry after all, spanning all manner of venues and businesses.
Despite the name, we here at I Need A Chef are much more than just a chef agency – if you work in hospitality, we can find you a job.
In addition to experienced chefs, our roster also includes:
We help all sorts of hospitality businesses – in addition to restaurants and hotels, we also work with cafes, school camps, pubs, bakeries, healthcare facilities… the list goes on and on.
As such, there’s no limit to the types of hospitality workers we can help!
Aussie Farmers Direct hired a couple of chefs for an event Ride2Work day. Chef Matt & Pip came to work with us for a few hours and absolutely excelled. They were both so professional and really made an effort to talk and interact with customers. This behavior came so naturally that copious amounts of people were asking if they worked for Aussie Farmers Direct. We will definitely be doing business again.
Thank you for making the event a success!
I signed up with I need a chef in August 2018 after working in my own business for 7 years. Since then I have been kept very busy at great venues and have worked alongside some fantastic chefs who have now become friends. Would highly recommend these guys, they have a great reputation amongst their clients and in the industry, I wish I’d joined them years ago!
Honestly one of the best companies i have worked for. Great Hours and work opportunity with fantastic management and a fun team. I am looking forward to coming back and working for I Need A Chef again. Highly recommend to anyone who like a change of work environment.
