We’re the people behind the food, hospitality and support services that power your day, make you smile and put a spring in your step. Just one of the reasons why we’re the UK and Ireland’s No.1 catering and support services provider.

Here at ESS, part of the Compass Group family, we are market leaders in the provision of catering, retail, leisure and support services in the Defence and Government sector.

This allows us to work in some of the most historic and iconic locations across the UK, such as the Royal School of Military Engineering (RSME) at Brompton Barracks, who provide a wide range of training in all engineering disciplines that are fundamental to the Royal Engineers.

We have an opportunity for a Sous chef to come and join the team working in the prestigious Officers’ Mess

Main responsibilities

As the Sous Chef, you will have a varied role supervising the delivery of the food service provision required, planning food production, processing orders and ensuring that all meals are provided to the required quality standards.

Ideal candidate

You will need to have excellent culinary skills, with an attention to detail, and you’ll need to be a team player, ideally with experience of supervising a team in a similar environment. You will need to be qualified to NVQ level 1 / level 2 in food preparation and cooking or equivalent, and be quality driven.

You will need to be able to work 40 hours a week, any 5 days out of 7. Weekend work is on a rota basis, but a requirement for hospitality and functions.
