About Us

Personnel Solutions, based at Exeter, Devon, was founded in 1997 by Ex-Head Chef Matthew Sherratt after a successful career in the hospitality industry.

Matthew learned catering from the ground up, starting work as a kitchen porter after leaving full-time education then trained as a chef.

He won his City and Guilds Master Chef certificate and became a head chef, cooked for the renowned Albert Roux and achieved the coveted AA two-rosette award for a hotel in the New Forest.

Matthew realised there was a need for a specialist chef recruitment agency to match the best people to the wealth of opportunities in hospitality at all levels and became managing director of Personnel Solutions.

It is this inside knowledge of the hospitality industry that has helped Personnel Solutions stand out to become such a valuable resource for recruiters and employees. To find out more, call us on 01392 840071 or email us at
