New Year’s Eve chef hunt now on

CHEFS are in big demand on the eve of one of the biggest summer seasons the hospitality industry has ever faced.

Australian Hotels Association executive director Bradley Woods said hotels were facing a growing problem of a lack of skilled chefs in WA to fill the available industry positions.

“We have been advised by members that there is a shortage of chefs in both the short and long term,” Mr Woods said.

“The industry will endeavour to resolve the problem in the short term. However, the long-term solution, in part, is for more young people to consider a career as a chef.”

Mr Woods said the career provided unique travel opportunities for young people, which has both positive and negative ramifications for the hospitality industry.

“It is frustrating to see the levels of youth unemployment when there is a large industry in WA experiencing such a skill shortage,” Mr Woods said.
