Restaurant Offers Chefs £1K Golden Hello

Restaurant Offers Chefs £1K Golden Hello
From Fine Dining Lovers - September 27, 2017

A London restaurant is offering new chefs a 1000 ($1340) golden hello in an effort to tackle the city's chefs shortage.

Gauthier, helmed by French chef Alexis Gauthier, has promised chefs the figure as a signing on bonus if they pass their trial and commit to working there for a year. Chefs will also have access to a research and development fund of up to 250 a month that can be used for eating out expenses and staff trips.

Speaking to Eater London, Gauthier said a toxic cocktail of high living costs, Brexit and other factors was making the UK capital less attractive to young chefs at a time when the city has probably never had a better gastronomic offering.

London is not such an exotic destination for chefs anymore, says Gautier. It is the best place on earth to eat but its a very expensive to live. Chefs now have to think twice before moving to London because often they are not well remunerated.
