Rosary Restaurant, Fryers Garden Centre, Knutsford
40 Hours per week, Full Time, Permanent Position
We are looking for an experienced Head Chef to join our busy team at the Rosary Restaurant set within our beautiful Fryer’s Garden Centre.
At the Rosary, our customers enjoy a unique and inspirational range of hot and cold dishes, cakes, pastries and afternoon teas. Currently the Rosary can achieve sales of over £600k per year with a seating capacity of 192, however there are exciting plans to expand this through a multimillion pound refit taking place in the very near future. With an innovative and forward thinking Head Chef in place, there is a fantastic opportunity for the Rosary to firmly establish itself as a leading destination restaurant.
You would lead and develop a team of 5 kitchen staff including chefs, kitchen porters and catering assistants and you would be responsible for ensuring that the day to day running of the kitchen is always smooth and efficient. Although you would be reporting to the Restaurant Manager, from day one you will be given a high level of autonomy and you will have a significant influence on the overall performance of the restaurant through the planning of exciting seasonal menus and buying fresh ingredients.
Our kitchen at the Rosary is a fast-paced environment so you can expect to be very hands-on and you will need to have experience of being able to manage high volumes of orders whilst ensuring exceptional standards of food quality are consistently maintained.
We are looking for someone who has an energetic personality who can inspire and lead a team. They must have a real passion for good food with a flair for creating stylish dishes that our AB1 customers come to expect from us. They will have the drive and motivation to always take standards to the next level. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!
As well as a rewarding career, you can expect to receive an excellent salary, membership of our pension scheme (auto-enrolment), 28 days’ holiday (including Bank Holidays), generous staff discount and potential for career development within the group.
