Chef’s Corner

Welcome to Chef’s Corner, a dedicated hospitality recruitment agency in Banbury and Oxfordshire for the hospitality and catering industry.

Chef’s Corner was set up by Mayday Employment Ltd to offer a one-stop-shop solution for pubs, restaurants and events companies who are looking for temporary and permanent hospitality and catering staff. Unlike other generalist agencies, Chef’s Corner has dedicated catering recruitment agency consultants based in our high street office in Banbury, Oxfordshire that work full-time on sourcing the best Chefs and Front of House staff in the area. Our consultants, having worked in the hospitality and catering industry themselves, are proud to work closely with our clients to understand their individual needs and how a hospitality employment agency in Banbury can best serve them.

A hospitality recruitment agency in Banbury with a huge database of candidates

If you are looking for temporary or permanent Chefs or Front of House hospitality staff, then Chef’s Corner has one of the most comprehensive databases of quality catering staff that you will find anywhere in Oxfordshire. Chef’s Corner can also offer a wide variety of flexible solutions to meet your hospitality recruitment challenges. We can provide catering staff who have a proven track record of delivering a high-quality service and source them at very short notice and we are also experienced at working with our hospitality clients to manage large-scale recruitment campaigns to fill a large number of positions quickly and effectively.

More than just a catering employment agency in Banbury

It’s important to us that Chef’s Corner has an active voice in the hospitality and catering industry, so in addition to offering the services that you would expect from a catering recruitment agency in Banbury, Chef’s Corner also dedicates its own marketing efforts to explore the challenges from within the industry and will then work directly with our clients to find both short term and long term solutions. One of the reasons why we are able to understand your industry to the degree that we are, is our partnership with Mark Higgs, a hospitality expert with over 20 years experience in the industry and the Landlord of the famous Castle pub and restaurant at Edgehill. Mark provides Chef’s Corner with an unparalleled ability to seek out talent and translate a hospitality client’s needs into a highly targeted recruitment campaign.

Proactively engaging Chef’s on your behalf

We understand that one of the biggest challenges facing the hospitality Industry at present is the lack of Chefs in the labour market today. As a catering employment agency in Banbury we understand our responsibility to unearth that hidden talent and maintain an ongoing dialogue with them. We do this so when an opportunity for re-employment does present itself, we can take it straight to those Chefs who we already have an excellent rapport with. One of the ways that we approach this challenge is to engage chefs both currently in the market for new employment and those chefs that may not currently be actively looking for new opportunities. Chefs Corner achieves this is by regularly employing inbound marketing tactics such as our recent ‘Omelette Challenge’, designed to raise awareness of Chef’s Corner, engage Chefs and ensure that we are at the front of those Chef’s minds when they are considering their next employment move.

Chefs Corner would be delighted to be your hospitality employment agency of choice in Banbury, so if you would like to discuss your current staff requirements then please fill in the form below or call Gionis on 01295 266 288 or email
