Key Tasks & Responsibilities

Reporting to the Head Chef, you will be a key member of the back of house team, ensuring the Chefs have the support they need each day to create thousands of meals to an exceptional quality standard.

This is a really exciting opportunity, and we will develop your career with us.

Our ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

o A good understanding of health and safety issues

o A positive can-do approach
