Ashgate Hospicecare is an independent registered charity that provides specialist care and support for adults and their families in North Derbyshire.  Our Catering team are central to delivering the high quality services we are known for.

With a brand new, state of the art kitchen and a newly opened on-site café and dining room, this is an exciting time to join our award winning team, providing catering services to our patients, staff, the public, and for corporate events.

You will have proven experience of working in a busy kitchen and will be able to work with and help supervise a small, friendly team. You will work closely with our Head Chef, preparing meals from the best seasonal produce available to meet dietary requirements, and using your creativity, knowledge and passion for what you do to ensure the offer for patients, functions and fundraising events alike is outstanding. 

We cater for up to 21 patients on our Inpatient Unit - 7 days a week,  and up to 16 Day Hospice patients - 4 days per week, and our planning to extend our café opening times to meet demand.  This post will therefore be part of a 7 day rota.
