    Kitchen and Catering Staff

    Direct staff has many years’ experience in finding the most suitable potential candidates in the industry. Some of these will be suitable for permanent positions, while others will only want temporary or seasonal work.When you’re looking at staffing a kitchen or doing catering for a function, you will need to determine whether you need permanent or temporary staff. Very often you will make use of temporary staff on a regular basis, but choose not to employ permanent staff due to the high risk of work shortage in the industry. This is a trend that many hotel / entertainment and catering companies are following. Even restaurants with a steady flow of customers may employ waiters and chefs on a temporary basis during peak holiday seasons or festive days.You need to carefully consider which catering agencies can meet your needs and requirements and then choose the best  – which is, of course, Staff Direct.
