We want someone who has a genuine passion for food and a creative mind. Everyone gets a chance to input into the menu, which is seasonal and changed every week.
Experience in a kitchen is great but not compulsory, as long as you have a drive and enthusiasm for food then we’re happy to train you from the ground up.

What’s in it for you?

All the positive aspects of working in a busy kitchen environment, but with a great work life balance! The position will be mostly daytime shifts, working only two evenings a week; this will be rotated.
An opportunity to train with an award winning kitchen team, to perfect your art and develop your chef skills.
The prospect of working alongside a diverse team that prides itself on having a flexible and inclusive culture.
