What they’re saying about iChef Recruitment

Zoe Jenkins

Derek has provided a speedy, efficient and professional service when helping to recruit both team members and senior members within our kitchen brigade here at Coworth Park. Derek provides a wealth of knowledge of people within the business, and provided an excellent shortlist based on our recruitment requirements. Besides acting as a “go between” he ensured that the right people were presented for consideration for various roles, and ensured that all parties are well briefed and represent a good match. I would have no hesitation in recommending Derek as a specialist provider for chef recruitment, given the challenging times we face in the industry in recruiting the right people.

I received outstanding and incredibly personal service from Derek. I have dealt with many agents and Derek was prompt, attentive, and kept me constantly informed. I was so impressed by the fact that after I had recruited, Derek called me to see how it was all going. I would not use anyone else!

Derek takes time to fully understand what the hotel is looking for and does not waste time putting forward unsuitable candidates. There is also an honest and open approach which is appreciated
