Your Valued Feedback

I've been fortunate enough to have built a fantastic business relationship with Barry. He has consistently always gone above and beyond for me and my needs. I couldn't recommend them or him more highly.

Leslie Austen

Head Chef, Shamrock Hotel, Shepparton

I have used Chef skills for many different venues across Melbourne. The quality of staff recommended was of a very high standard and I have always been happy with the staff I've been provided. Communication with Chef skills was top notch and they understand the different skills different venues need and are more than successful in listening to the directives I set. Overall very, very happy to recommend.

I have been lucky enough to have known and worked with the guys behind Chef Skills Victoria for many years. Not only are they great Chefs, but now they are connecting upcoming superstars to Regional establishments which we have trouble getting our hands on. With a good brief, they will discuss your exact needs and send you candidates to trial as soon as the next day in some circumstances. Well done guys, love your work!

Joshua Tirant

Exec Chef, Flinders Hotel, Flinders

I wasn’t aware there was a service of this type available until an ex-work colleague told me of her success in using Chef Skills Victoria to get entry level chefs into her café. My experience was similar to hers in that I managed to get 2 absolute guns who have progressed with me (even through this Covid period) and have been a magic fit for our team. I highly recommend the CSV team and will continue to use them as our first option for Kitchen staffing needs.

Michael Newberry

Head Chef, Riversdale Hotel, Hawthorn

My experience with Chef Skills Victoria was super beneficial, as interviewing, hiring and the overall recruitment process is one of the toughest challenges in a modern kitchen. Having a more streamlined approach with a company of professionals that know what we need in any particular situation means you have people trialling that are purely applicable to you with the skills that you require.

Marcello Fazio

Owner/Chef, Fazio Pizzeria and Grill, Hampton

It was a seamless process dealing with Barry and staff. They were always within reach to answer any questions and make sure everything went smoothly. I would fully recommend Chef Skills Victoria to employers and employees alike. They provided fast and efficient results and were a pleasure to work with. I will definitely look to them in the future.
