About Us

Forte Reliable Staffing Agency has been established for seventeen years.

Forte was acquired by Managing Director, Howard Hodgson, in October 2002.

Forte was originally set up as a specialised catering agency delivering experienced chefs and kitchen staff to restaurants, pubs, industrial kitchens etc. This includes providing Michelin star chefs to fine dining restaurants and quality hotels within and outside the Dorset and Hampshire areas.
