Looking for a chef?

Leading Chef
Recruitment Agency

We are a leading and independent temp chef recruitment agency who have been in the game since the 80’s – we know this space like the back of our hands! We work with some of the most prestigious hotels and events in the UK such as Ascot, Henley Regatta, Goodwood, Lords, Olympics and elite football clubs. But equally important to us are our independents: one-off country pubs and those hidden gem local restaurants.

Big enough to be noticed, small enough to care…

Human relationships are at the heart of everything we do. We began as a family-run team and we pride ourselves on our unique atmosphere where all candidates are welcome.

We’re always looking to nurture and reward our chefs throughout their careers with us and we donate a percentage of our profits to the charity Hospitality Action. A charity offering vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK.

When our business came to a sudden halt in 2020, due to the pandemic, we used the time to really think about how we could improve the hospitality sector and iron out all those pain points. The result was Talentbase the App!
For those of you who knew us at Base Recruitment, Talentbase is simply the new and improved version. Of course, we are keeping our human touch, we are just using this opportunity to bring something fresh by harnessing the power of technology to connect clients and chefs in a new and more efficient way. We are keeping our client kitchens working like well-oiled machines and giving our chefs more control over their time and money. Everyone is a winner!

Drop us a line or give us a call, our team would be more than happy to answer any questions.
