Cardiff & Glamorgan catering recruitment agencies
Cardiff and Glamorgan catering recruitment agencies offer industry specific staffing solutions to this coast-side Wales county. Encompassing the Mid, South, West and Vale of Glamorgan, local recruiters will usually work with food & drink serving establishments ranging from pubs to hotel groups.
Although the Glamorgan catering sector will cover an array of varied disciplines, workers will generally oversee the preparation and serving of food. Hotels, restaurants, leisure venues and bars are all covered by the catering industry and recruitment agencies who work in this field will list a number of these establishments amongst their clients.
Cardiff is the country's capital city and offers candidates the best catering job prospects in Glamorgan. There are over 700 catering and hospitality organisations in the city and developments such as the Millennium Centre and Cardiff Bay have only further strengthened the industry here. Due to Glamorgan's coast-side location, tourism also has an impact on local catering jobs with seasonal employment being common throughout much of the summer months.
The average Glamorgan catering salary is £18K-£20K per annum, but candidates can expect varied earnings depending on their specific job role. Management staff such as a hotel or restaurant manager can expect to earn £40K, however this is very much dependent on the location or size of business. Waitresses / waiters will typically be at the other end of the pay scale, with 75% of Glamorgan based front of house staff working part time and earning an average of £80 per week.
There is considered to be an absence of skills for many catering jobs with top chefs, kitchen staff and management professionals all being in short supply. While there isn't a high level of academic credentials required, chefs will be expected to have completed a school / college course or have gained relevant experience in an entry or junior role. Candidates will often continue to learn on the job, with food safety education being essential. A common route into a manager position is often via career progression, but business or hospitality courses can better equip personnel. Qualifications aren't necessary for most staff as experience / personality is thought of as the main barrier to entry.
