Private Chef Recruitment Agency in London

In 2018 Harper Fine Dining organically grew into recruitment, finding Chefs for families on permanent contracts. Our clients enjoyed the Private Chef service and reached out to us to find permanent Chefs for their homes. Since then we have proudly introduced our Private Chefs to their job roles and had many satisfied clients. Under the name Harper Fine Dining Recruitment, we specialise in sourcing and placing talented chefs in both temporary and permanent positions. We source chefs most suited to your requirements, pairing specific requests carefully with our chefs’ experience, specialisms and personality. Everybody is different and it is important to us to get it right for you and our chefs to have the best rapport possible.
