Commis Chef - Pastry Kitchen

We are seeking an aspiring dessert artist with a passion and flair for creating beautiful pastries, looking to start their career in a busy pastry production kitchen.

Our busy kitchen produces indulgent ranges of delicate desserts, proper puds and other sweet treats for the whole hotel - from large-scale conferences and events to inspired mini-desserts for The Glasshouse and afternoon tea pastries both classic and contemporary.

The team is full of knowledge, making this a good training ground for someone who has the relevant qualifications and some previous experience in Pastry but is looking for the next step in their early career.

You must have:

  • A clear command of the English language, both written and spoken
  • NVQ Level 1 & 2 (or equiv)
  • A positive and flexible attitude
