Recent Testimonial

Just a note again to thank you for your efforts over the last few months, it’s always a pleasure to work with the INAC team and I know I can trust you to deliver exactly what I need – which is exactly what you done over the last weeks Spring Carnival Period. From my end, nothing is ever a bother for you even when there’s last minute changes or requests and check in ran extremely smoothly.
It is with immense gratitude and admiration that I reach out to express our heartfelt appreciation for your outstanding efforts during the preparation and execution of the Caulfield Cup Carnival race week. Your partnership and the hard work of your staffing teams were integral to the remarkable success of the event, and I’d like to highlight the outstanding achievements of the three unforgettable race days.

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!

We have used #ineedachef for 8-years. They have helped us out with vol. and staff shortages so many times. They always send great Chefs and have an understanding of our regional requirements. They are such a valuable asset for us, and provide peace of mind for the rest of our kitchen team, because they know we are going to get great Chefs everytime.
We recently had a function and engaged the services of a Chef and waiting staff from I Need a Chef. It took all the stress and hassle out of organising our dinner. The Staff were fantastic at engaging with the guests and the food was served hot and on time. The I Need a Chef booking team were efficient and professional. Would definitely use again.
Caroline was unbelievably amazing, sourcing me a wait person at less than 24 hours notice. Not only was the communication excellent, the person that she sent was fantastic – very personable and professional. Caroline, I can’t thank you enough, you did a brilliant job!

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.

Started with INAC last year. Great team to work with, they fitted shifts around my life and even through the quiet period I still had plenty of work. Gave me long placements interstate and supported me when I found a permanent position on the coast. Can’t recommend highly enough.
