CDP - Banqueting Kitchen

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 team responsible for delivering The Grove's trademark event catering are seeking a CDP chef to assist them in preparing and sending fabulous food for all manner of events. Huge marquees to intimate meetings; weddings to anniversaries; Christmas joiner parties to Summer barbeques... The private dining options here at The Grove are endless. This therefore represents an opportunity to develop your career and gain exposure to a range of cuisines and styles amongst a busy but experienced team.

At The Grove we take pride in creating a wonderful environment for everyone. In return for your hard work you can expect award-winning coaching and development, with the opportunity to cross-train and move departments. Instead of the costs and wasted hours involved in travelling into London, we offer free parking, a staff shuttle bus to Watford and even staff accommodation. And there are many other benefits, including generous discounts, loyalty stays and use of the leisure facilities - plus subsidised on-site OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ childcare.
