Temporary Chefs / Kitchen Staff


In a tight spot?

I Need a Chef understand because we've been there. We recognise the pressure of kitchen staff absentees, and know not every establishment needs a fully manned kitchen brigade all of the time. We also recognise that every outlet and cuisine are unique and may require a different level of expertise or personnel.

At I Need a Chef we have the right people for the right job!

Temporary Chef Solutions

Whether it is a relief chef you require, when you get that dreaded phone call saying I can't come in, or a temp chef to get your business through a busy period. All of our chefs are fully qualified and have been through our rigorous interview and recruitment process.

If a fully qualified chef is not what you're looking for then we can happily provide you with:

  • Demonstration Chefs
  • Catering Assistants
  • Kitchen Hands

Or just that extra pair of hands to get you through a busy period or get your business back on track.

We can provide long and short term solutions for all areas of hospitality:

  • Hotels / Resorts
  • Restaurants
  • Cafes
  • Event Catering
  • Clubs
  • Pubs
  • Aged Care Facilities
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
