Essex Catering recruitment agency listing

Essex catering agencies help support local employers by placing food based professionals into vacancies across Chelmsford, Colchester, Southend and Basildon. Catering staff will typically be placed into dining and events openings and can be recruited in a number of roles including bar manager, chef, front of house and housekeeping.

The Essex catering industry encompasses businesses that deliver food orientated services to customers within this London bordering county. These services can include the creating, supplying, serving and retailing of food. Agencies will most often supply staff for clients such as restaurants, hotels and events companies, however there is also a demand for catering professionals within the local public sector. Including nearly 100 secondary schools and the University of Essex, the county is home to a large number of education establishments that require teams of catering staff. Hospitals and care homes also require candidates to fill similar roles.

Due to the close proximity to London, average catering salaries in Essex are comparatively greater than the rest of the UK at around £20K-£25K. The specific role and it's location will have a factor on salaries, with restaurant managers, hotel managers and experienced head chefs usually commanding the highest earnings. Chelmsford and Colchester are likely to offer the best prospects for candidates, whilst Southend's status as a seaside town means that seasonal jobs are common here during summer months.

A degree isn't required for most catering jobs and the majority of candidates will find that starting in an entry-level role provides the best opportunity for a successful career. Relevant courses are available for applicants but these will depend on the discipline. Chefs will need training and/or an exposure to a kitchen environment, whereas staff such as sommeliers may be encouraged develop their knowledge in order to become experts. Food safety awareness is necessary for almost all catering jobs.

Regardless of whether you're a Colchester based candidate with a passion for food or an employer in Chelmsford needing expert staff, our directory of Essex catering recruitment agencies can help find the right solutions for you.
