Specialising in temporary and contract chef recruitment for the hotel, industrial and catering sectors.

Relief Chefs was established in 2013 to provide chef support to the hospitality & catering sectors throughout the country. Set up and led by Austin Lawrence, the team has grown over the years.

Our rational is “chefs recruiting chefs”. Austin & Kieran O’Dwyer (another member of the team) have a combined total of 40 years of chef life and both are previous head chefs – giving them a great knowledge of what the industry is looking for.

In 2018, Anne Callinan joined the company, bringing with her over 15 years’ experience in Human Resource Management in the hospitality industry.

We feel our team are best placed to assist in providing suitable freelance chef cover & support in filling full time chef roles. We also offer consultancy to companies in the area of Kitchen Management.
