 Relief Agency Chefs Wanted       

We have lots of work for experienced/qualified chefs for immediate start.

To be a relief agency chef you will have to be adaptable, experienced, have the correct attitude and able to think on your feet when required. Just think of it as like starting a new job every time you go to a new client. Your own transport is essential due to the location of our clients. Full Circle have a reputation for providing excellent chefs to the industry. Our client base is wide and varied it ranges from Care homes, Industrial units, Restaurants, Cafes, Football grounds, Motor racing events and Hotels. In fact anywhere that serves food we supply chefs to them.

The Benefits of joining the Agency

Some people do not take to the Agency but lots do. The ones that do enjoy the variety it has to offer and experiencing different places. Another advantage is that if you don’t want to work or need time off for say a family party you can take it. All you need to do is tell us when you are able to work and when you aren’t and we book your work in around that.

You can also choose how you get paid; you can either go on PAYE or be paid through an Umbrella Company or form your own Ltd Company and be paid through that. If you opt for PAYE you also accrue holiday pay for each hour you work which is saved for you each week. Known as the “holiday pot” amongst our staff. Our pay rates are competitive and vary according to the role required.

For the Schools, Play Centres, Nurseries, Care Homes, and Secure Units you will need a current DBS certificate. We can process this through our office at a cost of £52. Once you receive your certificate you will need to register it online within 2 weeks at a cost of £13. Your DBS just needs updating every year at a cost of £13 from then on.
