Are you a skilled chef who would appreciate a healthy balance between your professional and personal life, without split shifts and being off-duty over the festive season?
We're currently looking for a talented, innovative and hardworking Sous Chef to help create a small events team, to work alongside a Head Chef and our Executive Chef. The team will provide exciting, fresh food menus and deliver outstanding service whilst helping expand our already well-established brand “Campus Kitchen”.
The role would encompass our in-house catering operation, as well as fine dining work, both on campus and at York’s prestigious Guildhall. We want people who push for high standards and take pride in a sandwich as well as a grand banquet and everything in between.
You will work with innovative Head Chefs who will continually help you develop your skills. You will also work with on-trend food concepts such as food trucks, pizza pods and trendy cafes and have the opportunity to work across multiple sites. You will be responsible for all aspects of the food, from preparation to presentation, whilst assisting and coaching the junior team members to achieve the same.
The salary offered is £28,500 per annum, averaging 37 hours per week on a 5 over 7 basis.
The majority of shifts will fall between Monday to Friday, with no split shifts. Occasional weekend work may be needed, and flexibility is essential to ensure the smooth day to day running of the kitchen.
Additional hours may be required on occasion to meet business demand. Where overtime occurs, time off at a later date will be granted when appropriate or otherwise paid.
