The Head Chef role provides a great deal of autonomy and as part of the pub's senior management team you'll play a truly influential role over the performance of the business. Together with the manager you'll develop seasonal menus and be responsible for locally sourcing fresh ingredients from the best suppliers, and negotiating the best deals available.
As well as being involved in a hands-on cooking role you'll also undertake a wide range of management duties and will ensure that food safety standards and procedures are second to none whilst building, leading and motivating a happy team with a strong emphasis on training and developing junior chefs.
Our Sous Chefs work very closely with the Head Chef to ensure the smooth running of a busy kitchen; cooking and working across all sections together with the opportunity to make a significant input in the menu development process with your own ideas for interesting, seasonal dishes in line with our food philosophy.
Chefs de Partie
Our Chefs de Partie have the opportunity to gain experience working across all areas of the kitchen and will generally be given responsibility to look after a particular section with the help of a junior chef.
On a daily basis you'll be supporting the Sous Chefs and Head Chef in a range of duties including fresh food preparation and cooking as well as undertaking kitchen management duties including ordering, stock control and ensuring food safety and cleaning standards are met.
We see our junior chefs as our Head Chefs of the future and we have lots of opportunities at Apprentice/Trainee or Commis Chef level. If you're interested in a career in professional cookery, or you are already working towards a qualification, we'd love to hear from you. We have excellent links with local colleges, and we sponsor a number of students to gain professional qualifications in the workplace.
