Welcome to Bookachef

Bookachef a revolutionary new online matchmaking solution, bringing together sought after skilled chefs with hospitality and catering customers. For the first time, chefs and caterers alike can have access to a totally transparent and easy to use temporary placement service

Bookachef is the first fully transparent temporary chef placement service. You decide when you work, where you work and how much you work for!

If you are a chef who wants to take control over your career and provide a great service to our customers, we want to talk to you now.

We provide the platform for you to sell your skills to potential customers. Our easy to use profile builder allows you to shout about your skills & experiences. Upload your CV and certificates to show customers what you're all about. You decide the areas that you want to work in, the days you want to work on and your hourly rate for each shift that you are available. Our customers can book the chefs with the skills and experiences that best suit the specific needs of their Kitchen with the click of a mouse.

We are looking for chefs that take pride in their work, integrate seamlessly into a kitchen team and help us to grow our business by delivering a fantastic service to our customers.

We believe that skilled chefs are being sold short by recruitment agencies. Chefs have never been more in demand so it’s time to take control of when you work and how much you earn. We enable you to plan your own schedule and set your own hourly rate for each shift that you work.

We know that there is huge variation in the skills and experiences of chefs in the relief chef market and many chefs on full time contracts are working up to 80 hours a week for salaries based on a 40-hour rota. We believe that good chefs should be able to work when they want, where they want and charge a fair rate of pay based on skills and reviews.

We are working towards a future where working on an interim basis will become the norm for chefs that want to maximise their earnings while maintaining a healthy work life balance.
