"I am at a period in my career where I am unsure of the direction I wish to take. I have 16 years experience within the catering industry qualified up to head chef level. I am also qualified as a lecturer and assessor for higher education and have just finished part-time teaching within a catering department.
I have always wanted to get into contract catering, but after many applications I ‘ve been unsuccessful. At the moment I work for an agency but would really like to find permanent work."
