Scotstaff Recruitment are currently recruiting exclusively on behalf of their client a 4* resort for a Restaurant Head Chef. This role is based 2 hours away from Glasgow and 3 hours from Edinburgh. This will require you to live in the resort which is provided for free and is a brand new self contained studio apartment.
This is a unique role as we are not looking for a Chef that necessarily has 4/5* resort experience. We are looking for someone who has dealt with an all fresh produce volume restaurant experience. You will have experience at managing a team of 8+ Junior Chefs with 300+ covers a day. You will be a classically trained chef with the classic values of demanding authority, respect and discipline without the traits of a 'hot head'
You will preferably have experience in working away from home so you understand the usual demands and issues that come with working away from home and managing your team at the same time.
The restaurant is a classic family Scottish bistro style restaurant with a great setting and a strong FOH set up. You will be responsible for all the usual requirements as a head chef:
- Staff recruitment and Rota
- Staff training
- Menu costing and writing
- Stock control
- Stock ordering
- Liaising at management meeting
- working directly with owners and HR on people development
- Making sure kitchen is kept clean and safe
- keeping hygiene and reporting up to date
This is definitely a project role for the right candidate to grab total control of the kitchen which will also need to bring on a full new team. The kitchen and restaurant has recently been re branded and upgraded both BOH and FOH.
This role comes with a salary up to £40,000 per year, Bonus, Free accommodation and holidays.
