Time for a quick quiz Chef?

The Development Chef Career Quiz!

1) You're enjoying your current position and feel mostly fulfilled, but...

a) You want a long-term career opportunity developing you both professionally and creatively, and you're ready for a new challenge.

b) You know you should consider a move, but right now is too soon.

c) You only work to pay the bills and avoiding the sack is good enough.

2) You've already had the benefit of working in some exceptional brigades under mentors that have taught you so much. How can you kick on from this now?

a) Embark on a Development Chef putting your culinary and communication skills as well as commercial acumen to the test.

b) Carry on learning where you are with a view of moving on in a year or so.

c) You can't really. The boss makes all the decisions anyway.

3) You're considering your future career as a Chef. What's most important to you next?

a) Career fulfillment still in food, learning and improving as much as possible but with a work-life balance.

b) Job Security. In this day and age, you're lucky to be paid for your efforts... hopefully Brexit won't be detrimental to you.

c) Leaving this industry as far behind as a possible. Chefs are worked too hard and not appreciated.

4) Where would you look to for food trends and new ideas?

a) Anywhere and everywhere. Social media, magazines, local restaurants and travel as much as I can, when I can. There is always someone I can learn from.

b) Ask my colleagues and use their recipe ideas with the odd tweak.

c) Not much really. The classics never change and most trends are fads that never go anywhere.

5) What would provide you with more personal satisfaction?

a) Seeing your new food products fly off the shelf of a national grocery retailer, available to the whole country.

b) Ensuring you continue to satisfy your restaurant's regular customers with exciting additions to the specials board

c) Getting the kitchen closed early on a Friday as the late reservation cancels!

If you answered mostly...

A's : We want to hear from you. Update your CV and tell us why becoming a Development Chef is the logical and most exciting next step in your career

B's : You're open to change and advancement as a Chef, but still aren't sure of your style or abilities. We'll be ready to talk in a year or so.

C's : You're employed?!! stop reading this advert and get back to it!
