Below is an actual entry in our accident book, now we all know health and safety at work is a serious business and the importance of working safely cannot be emphasised enough…. however this entry made everyone of us laugh out loud.
The staff member will remain anonymous, but we will never let them forget it!!
We would like to thank Mark, one of our long standing clients, for posting this on our Facebook page.
Mark is moving on to pastures new and wish him the best of luck in his new role. It is always good to receive testimonials like this and we do appreciate our clients taking the time to let us know how Full Circle Catering are performing.
This testimonial is especially appreciated because we have been supplying for so long…….also it is nice that he took the time to thank all of us in the office.
Once again, thanks Mark and the best of luck in the future.
Imagine the shock in the Full Circle Office this morning, Aston Leaves Strictly!! and Everton won a game of football this weekend!!
So on one hand we have Everton supporter Russ having something to smile about and others being sad about Aston. Life however has a way of going Full Circle so things can change quickly.
If you are a employer wanting to post a job go Full Circle with Full Circle Jobs. If you need a relief chef go Full Circle with Full Circle Catering. Full Circle Care will provide you with relief nurse or carer.
You will find the contact details for Full Circle Care Agency and Full Circle Catering at the bottom of the page. For all your staffing needs call any of the Full Circle Divisions now.
Full Circle will try and solve your staffing issues.
Please remember though that we only cover the Healthcare and Hospitality Sectors. Everton will have to recruit their own manager and Aston will go home and await the birth of his child. Everything will be ok and all will be well with the world, until next week when Everton will lose and one of the best dancers will be voted off Strictly again.
Such is life!!!
If you are in the Hospitality sector and have a temporary chef vacancy you need to fill before Christmas you really should be getting in contact with the relief chef team in the office now to get the booking in.
It is well known by now that there is a massive shortage of chefs and cooks throughout the UK, we at Full Circle Catering, just like everyone else, are not immune from this shortage. So please book early so we can find the right chef for your establishment.
Call Full Circle Catering to speak to our very experienced consultants about your booking and tell us what you are looking for. We are all ex chefs in the office with a wealth of experience, so you know you are speaking to experts and not sales people who are just after a sale.
After 15 years in business we have taken the step of opening a Twitter account and a Facebook account. At long last you can either poke us or tweet us!
Please have a look at Twitter or Facebook, here you will find two very active forums full of useful (and not so useful) facts!!!
If you have any interesting stories about food or any recipes please send them and we will be put them on Facebook alongside your name if you wish.
In these turbulent times for the hospitality industry it makes economic sense for proprietors and managers to look to relief chef agencies for their staffing solutions.
There are many reasons for booking a chef from an agency and I list just a few of them below:
Planned holiday cover
Emergency sickness cover
Chef getting tired and demoralised due to working longer hours.
Can’t afford to employ another chef full time due to cost and other liabilities.
Can’t find the right part time employee.
Busy periods coming up and only need chefs for these days.
Special occasions such as a wedding which has to go well.
If a chef is booked just for one day the cost to the client is relatively small compared to the alternatives and staff morale. In fact on an eight hour shift if you pay your current chef £9.50 per hour the extra cost to you could be as low as £33 per day taking into account holiday pay, pension and NI contributions.
It really is worth setting up an account with a reputable agency so that you have access to a chef in a crisis. Imagine the hassle of having your only chef going sick on a busy weekend; having recourse to an agency could alleviate the situation.
Whilst not all agencies have an excellent reputation for the quality of staff, some, like our agency, Full Circle Catering based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, do take a lot of care in staff selection and put a lot of emphasis on the service they deliver.
Just like there are badly run restaurants there are also well run ones. The same goes for chef agencies; there are good ones and bad ones. Take time to find a good one and the savings in employing full or part time staff could be substantial.
For all the jobs you never get around to doing or larger projects.
