Are you an experienced pastry chef looking for more involvement in developing menus? Do you want a kitchen that supports your drive to provide the best by using the best ingredients? Our Cambridge College client is looking for a Senior Pastry Chef to support both their day to day needs and the events they provide.

You’ll be working closely with the Head Chef and Sous Chef to create a fantastic pastry and dessert menu for fellows, students, guests and the occasional event too. You’ll have authority over planning seasonal menus and get involved with sourcing the ingredients to get the best while reducing costs where you can. Your experience and eye for detail will help you create fantastic daily menus, producing the high quality food our client is well known for. You’ll be working both in a team and independently, supporting the Head Chef in producing menus alongside having the freedom to work on your pastry section your way. You’ll get to involve yourself in the planning and delivering of pastries at conferences, adding some variety to your day to day.

This role comes with plenty of benefits, such as:

  • £29,000-30,000p.a. with a bonus.
  • Medical cashback scheme and a generous defined benefit pension scheme.
  • Free lunch at the college.

This role is ideal if you’re looking for a step up in your career with more independence over your menu that will be served to a multitude of different people. Your NVQ and knowledge of Food Hygiene will mark you out as an ideal candidate, taking pride to ensure your section is clean and tidy to deliver the best food.
