We are looking for a talented Sous Chef to join our team within The Household of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.  The Sous Chef will be responsible for the supervision, preparation and service of food to the highest standards from private dining and staff meals, to receptions and events.   You will be confident working alone in the provision of meals and also as part of the wider team.

Working in Royal Residences across the UK, you will be passionate about the quality of the food you provide, including its origins and sustainability.  You will be accustomed to planning menus, ordering and managing stock levels, budget control, health and safety (including hygiene standards and best practice), and of course delivering from menu conception through to service.

Applicants must have demonstrable experience of working as a Sous Chef in a private house or in premier catering, or equivalent.  They will have a City and Guilds Catering qualification, or equivalent, with an understanding, or working knowledge, of organic food.  A flexible and adaptable approach is essential, as are excellent communication skills and the ability to work calmly under pressure.

A full, valid UK driving licence is required, and the successful candidate must be willing to travel away from home for periods of, normally, no more than two weeks at a time.  This role is based in residences across the UK on a rota basis.
