Frequently asked questions

Hire chef online

We advertise in many places to attract job seekers who are looking for chef positions at local venues. We use software automation to onboard them on daily basis.

We maintain an up-to-date list of chef job seekers, both active and passive candidates. Thus, after you’ve posted a job ad, our job-matching automation will show you the current pool of chefs immediately for you to review and hire.

This helps you save time from waiting for applicants. It also helps you find passive candidates (these candidates are employed elsewhere and unable to search for jobs actively, but they’re open to job offers).

Most candidates show their cheffing experience in previous employment. They have easy job requirements: for example, they prefer jobs that are close to public transport, paying $25/hour minimum, or minimum 20 hours per week. They are most likely open to your job offers if it meets their job requirements.

On other job boards, you post a job and then wait for applicants which may take days. Some charge you an upfront fee first to post a job regardless of how many applicants you will receive. You’ll receive no more than a resume file and/or cover letter.

Hiring a chef is often straightforward. All you need is a list of the current candidates with their profile and experience.

Spare Staff differences:

  • You’ll receive chef candidates instantly.
  • Our pool of cheffing candidates is maintained and up-to-date. Candidates are required to confirm they’re still looking for jobs once a week to keep their applications active.
  • No upfront cost to receive candidates.
  • If a candidate has received interview offers, or is no longer available, we’ll show this information in the candidate’s profile.
  • More than just a resume. Candidate profile includes: location, asking wage, availability, self-rated skills, and optional job preferences such as 20+ hours per week.
