This role requires a Head Chef with strong management and volume experience. Catering for over 300 covers every day over the summer this is a busy operation, which requires a level-headed and hands-on head chef to run the kitchen and produce fantastic food.

The service period covers breakfast, lunch and dinner so you will need to recruit, train and develop a team to manage a full day’s operation. The evening service period is the busiest and requires hands-on management, leading by example.
