Head Chef

What we need in a nutshell

Someone who understands that exceptional food and drink are central to a happy holiday. From leading your team’s development to stocks, yields and audits but most of all doing what you love to do...cooking! This is an exceptional opportunity for a skilled Head Chef looking to show off their creative skills and lead the kitchen teams across our venues.

Who are we?

We’re shaking up the Great British holiday. At our amazing UK resorts we pull out all the stops and add the bells and whistles to give our guests the holiday of a lifetime. We’re a growing company and our vision is to have a footprint that spans the UK, Find out more about our holiday experience on our website: http://www.awayresorts.co.uk

What you’ll be doing

You will manage and inspire the kitchen teams to produce tasty meals to our high standards. This will include:

  • Control and direct the food preparation process and any other relative activities
  • Ensure consistency of quality of dishes before they reach the customer
  • Plan orders of equipment and ingredients managing stock and wastage effectively
  • Remedy any problems or defects
  • Be fully in charge of managing and training kitchen teams across our venues
  • Oversee the work of the kitchen teams
  • Manage and review team workload to maximise efficiency and ensure standards
  • Implementation of all legislative measures and administration required by the current Food Hygiene, licensing, and collaboration and respect across the team.

You will lead from the front, setting the standards for your team and motivating, coaching and supporting them to be outstanding.

One more thing…holidays happen at holiday times and eating and drinking goes on in into the night, so you’ll need to work your magic on bank holidays, evenings and weekends too.
