As a Cook/Chef, you thrive in a busy, customer-focused environment, dealing with the public and other staff on a day to day basis. Every day is different, but with a constant focus on customers. But what are your career goals in hospitality? You’re here for a reason, you want more in life, and you want to create your dream life!

How Can My Cook Skills Transfer to Recruitment?

If transferred successfully, your skills developed in hospitality can result in high earnings! Some recruitment skills are honed over time, but starting off on the right foot is key… and that’s easier when your skills are transferable!

Key transferable Hospitality skills:

  • Competitiveness
    You always want to better your skills and work to be the best cook/chef in the business - with a strong drive. Healthy competition between a team is great for morale-boosting and ensuring you are all working to the best of your ability.
  • Teamwork
    You can’t avoid teamwork in a hospitality role. Whether you’re working with other chefs or kitchen staff or working with the other team members, such as waiters or front of house staff… you are used to creating a seamless system that benefits both the team and customers.
  • Work ethic
    A strong work ethic is key in this role - as the hours can be long, the work hard, and the pressure high! Working hard is important for professional and personal success, proving what kind of character you are and how much you want to progress in your career.
  • Customer-focused
    Working in hospitality, your work is first and foremost about the customers! Focusing on their experience is key to a successful business - the customer is always right. Spending every day meeting your customer’s needs...
  • Management skills
    Depending on your role, you may be in charge of other team members, or you may just have more experience in managing tasks, or taking more responsibility on certain days… great management skills are key to great teamwork and success.
  • Multitasking
    Handling many tasks at once, balancing the scales and ensuring all customers are happy with their orders. Working to a plan, but also being flexible to deal with things as they happen - preparing food, making food, serving at times, and working with other cooks....Should we go on?
