Goldstar Chefs

Attracting and retaining Chefs is the Achilles Heel of running a hospitality business.

The ‘new normal’ job market has evolved to flexible WFH desk jobs, working shorter hours and weekends off, attracting hospitality workers by the droves.  Many EU nationals who shored up the industry have either returned home or chosen other occupations after gaining UK settlement.

Much of UK’s hospitality industry has been shaped by migrant labour. It seems only those coming to UK for a better life have the motivation and willingness to work in demanding roles, and at sustainable salary levels. However, visa costs have raised the bar for EU nationals but lowered it for non-EU’s. It remains acceptable to non-EU’s who have a different perspective of coming to work in the UK.

Goldstar Chefs are nationwide recruitment agency procuring skilled Chefs from around the world for UK’s diverse hospitality industry.  Sectors include Restaurants, Hotels, Events Caterers, QSR brands, and Pubs  You too can have the Chefs you want in your business.
