Using Catering Agencies to Secure Placements Abroad
While researching a piece about chalet cookery courses we found Leiths List, the job agency section of Leiths School of Food and Wine. Vacancies listed on their board are available locally (Devon), in the rest of the UK or abroad. Information about their cooking courses can be found at www.leiths.com.
Another agency with worldwide vacancies includes Lumleys Catering Recruitment. Specialising in corporate hospitality and private entertaining they require cooks, assistants, wait staff, butlers, and pairs of hands. Lumleys have been providing catering staff of the highest calibre since 1972, and staff are rigorously interviewed prior to appointment. Jobs listed on their website have been located in the South of France, Barcelona, Sri Lanka and the East Hamptons, USA. More at www.lumleyscooks.co.uk
