Chef Jobs

For the past three decades, Focus have been placing talented Chefs into the Food sector in the UK and internationally. We work on a variety of Chef jobs.

We support Food Manufacturers, Ingredients Suppliers, Brands and NPD Consultancies; Restaurant, Hotel, QSR and Coffee Shop Chains; Contract Caterers and Airlines.

Recruiting from Junior Development Chef through to Head of Food / Group Executive Chef level, we support Food businesses in finding the right talent for their Culinary Innovation teams.

We have successfully built teams of Development Chefs for leading food manufacturing companies that supply into the major retailers. Finding accomplished Chefs from the hospitality sector to bring restaurant quality food, the latest culinary trends, and specific expertise in particular cuisines.

Projects are varied, some require specific category experience, excellent customer presentation or sales skills. Some roles are more operational in nature, leading teams in the Hospitality or Catering Sectors. Others are more scientific and require both Culinary and R&D expertise. Whatever the need, we understand the industry and will take time to fully understand the brief to find the right candidate.

We provide specific support to Restaurant Chefs looking to move into Development Chef positions. It’s not an easy transition for everyone so we provide advice on the key differences and skills required to succeed. For existing Development Chefs, we provide industry knowledge, CV and interview guidance to support career development ambitions. We love seeing candidates we’ve placed thrive in their companies such as a Junior Development Chef that is now an Innovation Director, whose team we recruit for.
