How much will it cost me to use Caterer Book’s services?

Do I need to provide my personal details to sign up?

Yes, we will require your personal details for authentication purposes. You have the alternative to sign up through your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn account.

Note that we have a strict data protection policy, which means your data will only be rigorously secured and not shared with external entities. For more information, please refer to our Privacy section.

Will employers be able to see my resume?

Yes, your profile will be visible to all recruiters. If you wish, you can mask some details from your profile. However, we encourage you to share your full details as only validated, vetted recruiters from the UK and Ireland hospitality and catering sector will be able to view your personal and employment information.

What if there are no jobs that match my profile?

Caterer Book is a niche job board focused on the hospitality and catering industry. At any given point of time, you are likely to find a variety of relevant jobs on our site, from openings for chefs, waiters, waitresses, bar person, manager and chef to cake decorator, consumer scientist, butcher and vending machine operator and many more. You can filter searchers by type of job (full-time/part-time/temporary/freelance/internship), location (Ireland/U.K) and salary range.

I haven’t been contacted by an employer I applied to? Is it possible that they haven’t seen my resume?

Some employers may not get back to candidates. So while they may have viewed your CV, they may not have had the time to respond for some reason. It is possible that they may have filled the position and don’t have a policy of giving feedback to rejected candidates. Or they may be extremely busy and still assessing a number of applications. If you don’t hear back, please feel free to contact the company directly.

Employer FAQ's

How does Caterer Book ensure that my urgent job listings get before job seekers?

We send candidates who have registered with our site email notifications of jobs, allow them to bookmark jobs, and to apply directly to your listed job(s) from our site.

What details can we advertise in our listing?

You can specify your location, job type and salary. Offer candidates clarity about your company by stating your mission, what you do and other information you believe will help you attract top talent. However, what you wish to include or exclude is dependent on your personal preferences.

How can I manage my job listings?

You can view your listings and candidate resumes separately. Track all the candidate resumes you have downloaded as well as the applicants you have responded to.

Is Caterer Book a subscription service?

Yes, absolutely. We offer three price plans designed for businesses of all sizes. The Bronze plan is an entry-level plan if you only need to post a few jobs during peak season or infrequently. Our most popular plan is the Silver Plan that allows you to post more ads and download more CVs than the Bronze Plan. Our best value plan is the Gold Plan that enables you to post 30 job ads and download 1000 CVs. Please use this link for pricing details.
