Amazing Pay and Opportunities

You get competitive pay rates including immediate Vacation Pay. On top of that, you can attract performance bonuses and lucrative career opportunities.

Cooks for Hire Management Inc. is an equal opportunity employer that places qualified candidates into various positions in hospitality organizations within the Lower Mainland. We offer introduction into the industry to identify and narrow down the search for a desired position in one of our client’s establishments. We place qualified candidates in positions on a part-time basis, which can lead to full-time employment with our clients.

On-Call positions range from Sous-Chef to Kitchen Helper. If you don’t have a lot of skills or experience yet, but you are interested in a career in this industry, we also offer dishwashing positions.

Your skills are assessed by a stringent set of rules as outlined in the Job Descriptors for each category. After you are categorized, you are sent out to an assignment where the client also rates your performance. Through these two criteria, we determine your rate of pay and the performance bonuses you receive.

Occasionally we are asked to provide a Private Chef for catering events. We review and select applicants based on experience and education.

We offer employees competitive pay rates including immediate vacation pay. The assessment determines an employee’s category and thus a base pay. But with a client’s review/rating after each assignment, you attract an additional performance bonus that not only benefits you but increases our valuable reputation in the industry.

We also offer additional resources including discounts at several outlets within the Lower Mainland to purchase tools and uniforms. We can offer courses like FoodSafe™ and basic knife skills to enhance your culinary repertoire.

Allen, Sous Chef

Cooks For Hire was very professional and discreet for our event. The food was delicious and beautifully presented and replenished on a continual basis. Our guests were never waiting around for canapés. We highly recommend the services provided by CFH. They played a large part in the seamless execution of our event. From the planning stages to the actual day of our event, CFH made the process stress free.

Alex & Jenny

As a chef responsible for executing high-end dinners, canape parties and large volume buffets, the staff at Cooks For Hire enable me to perform at the highest level of expectations. I have a small core staff that we routinely augment with CFH, helping keep our total labor and administration costs down and our productivity up. I can honestly say that Cooks for Hire has some of most knowledgeable Chefs I have had the pleasure to work with.
