Chef pay up but below average

Chef pay rates are again going up but they are still well short of the average industrial wage, according to Excel Recruitment’s 2018 Salary Survey.
 Chef pay rates are again going up but 75% of all chefs are still falling short of the average industrial wage of €36,000 per annum. According to Excel Recruitment’s 2018 Salary Survey, a Chef de Partie can expect an average of €30,000 a year, while a Junior Sous Chef takes home €35,000. On the higher end of the scale, a Hotel Head Chef earns between €65,000- €70,000 + bonus while an Executive Chef in a Hotel can take home anything between €75,000- €82,000.
The Irish hospitality sector’s chef crisis continued to dominate industry news and discussion last year, a nowhere near new phenomenon that looks to set to continue right through 2018. Businesses of all levels, shapes and sizes are continuing to struggle to attract, recruit and retain a quality of chefs at all levels. While there is much debate that goes back and forth regarding the issue and while many potential solutions have been suggested, such as re-instating Cert qualifications or promoting apprenticeships,  much of the issue is centred around the industry standard pay rates for chefs.
