Every Chef listed on Chefs2Go has been interviewed by a Chefs2Go regional manager, who has extensive experience and knows the trade. Not all applicants make it through our stringent interview process, which is there to ensure you can be confident that your applicants are have the experience and qualifications to meet the level listed on Chefs2Go.
Choosing the right chef
Finding staff with the right skills and mind set are crucial. We recommend that you do your research before you hire any staff. Make sure you have a clear job description, do reference checks, and look for chefs that have done similar roles. For example, a chef who has alot of experience in breakfast may not be the ideal candidate for a steakhouse. A chef with a buffet or catering background might not suit a small a la cart restaurant role.
Try to find chefs that have had experience in similar roles. If hiring non Australian citizens remember to check they have a working visa and are legally allowed to work for you. Don't be afraid to trial a few chefs before hiring one on a fulltime basis. Ask to see recipes and menu's they have either been working on or written in the past. Take your time to find the right candidate and you could have a happy staff member for many years. The wrong choice could cost you time and money. Ask your regional manager for advice and feel doubly assured you've got the right chef for the job.
