Cheffing Around, Australia's premier chef employment agency


Always wanted to become a Chef?
Well there’s never been a better time to get your start in an apprenticeship in cookery.
One of the few professions where your career becomes a lifelong skill that can be utilized everyday for the rest of your life.

Being a professional chef is hard, damn hard!
Long hours, stress, working nights, weekends and public holidays isn’t for everyone but for that initial 4 year sacrifice,
you can travel anywhere in the world,(when applicable),always have a job ,and good money in your pocket!

Only 25% of starting Chef apprentices finish their apprenticeship due to the demands of being an apprentice chef,
but good Chefs consider themselves lifelong apprentices as Chef is the one job where you never stop learning or improving yourself in the lifelong pursuit of flavor.

If your finishing school or looking to change careers to the vocation of cookery, now is the time!
