Guests visit The Grove, Hertfordshire’s spectacular 5 star hotel resort, for a real breath of fresh air. Central London quality – and benefits - without the hassle. From sheer indulgence to all sorts of outdoor activity across the 300-acre estate, our world-class, award-winning Sequoia Spa and Health Club soothes and stimulates, revitalises and inspires. To continue exceeding our guests’ expectations, we need to rely on, and develop, every member of the team.
The Stables Restaurant, within the Estate's original stable block, enjoys gorgeous views over the golf course or The Stables courtyard. Next door, The Stables Bar is the ideal place to chill out, swap stories after a round of golf, enjoy an apéritif before dinner in the restaurant and watch a selection of Sky Sports football matches on our newly installed 3D TV. Golfers can use the bar from 7am, to read the papers, grab a snack and shelter when it rains. The busy team is currently looking for a Commis chef to help lead the team in producing The Stables' trademark dishes of succulent steaks… wonderful wood-fired pizzas… warming winter pies… it's all homely and comforting.
As a Commis Chef helping to prepare and present this diverse cuisine, it is desirable that you will have the relevant qualifications like NVQ, or the willingness to study for them. Previous experience would be ideal – an obvious enthusiasm for the industry is essential. We’re looking for a positive, flexible, focused attitude. In short: passion.
