Home - FAQ - What qualifications is needed to work for COTR?

Due to the requirements of our clients, we are looking for experienced and skilled staff who are able to walk into a new site, pick up tools and get the required job done. As a result, unfortunately we cannot take on staff new to Hospitality.


Our chefs need a minimum of 5 years post-completion of their apprenticeship in Commercial Cookery. This ensures that the people we send to client sites are sufficiently experienced to be able to cook in a new environment and with a new menu, without the need for significant supervision.


We require you to have at least 1-2 years’ experience in a similar role to the one you are applying for.

We require at least two recent references from every applicant, so that we can check with people you have worked with before prior to offering you a place on our Brigade.
