Those looking to find work in London may wish to explore opportunities for training as a chef, as one expert has claimed that this is one of the areas where the catering industry is struggling to fill positions.
Martin-Christian Kent, director of policy and research at People 1st, said that while the largest number of job postings is for restaurant management roles, chefs are not far behind.
"Chefs continue to be the biggest challenge in terms of recruiting. There are a huge number of postings for chef positions, but applicant numbers are [far] fewer and therefore it continues to be a challenge," he stated.
Mr Kent went on to add that cooks in specialist areas are in particularly high demand, including those who are experts at making pastry.
TV chef Jamie Oliver recently announced that various jobs will be created at his new eatery in Edinburgh, which is set to be located in the Grade A-listed Assembly Rooms building on George Street.
