Amadeus, multi award winning caterers are a division of The NEC Group with over 40 years of experience dealing with venue and event operations, delivering retail catering, fine dining and hospitality to thousands of visitors from all around the world. 

We are looking to recruit a Chef d'Partie who enjoys being part of a team delivering retail catering, fine dining and hospitality to thousands of visitors from all around the world.

Reporting to a Senior Chef, your main duties will include the planning and preparation of your designated food area.  You will be required to deliver a wide range of food and concepts to a set specification and standards, ensuring that all hygiene and health & safety compliance are being adhered to. 

Proven experience in a similar style kitchen operation is essential, along with the willingness to work with the existing team.  Knowledge of various menu offerings, along with a thorough understanding of Business Control; cost, stocktake, wastage control and assisting with menu development, are all part of this role, as is deputising for the Senior Chef d'Partie in their absence. 

As an individual you must have at least 2 years' experience working within a busy kitchen in a similar quality establishment and hold NVQ 1, 2& 3 (or equivalent) in food preparation and cooking, be qualified to Level III (intermediate) in Food Safety (or be willing to undertake training to obtain) and have the willingness to learn new skills, which includes the Group's IT systems. We would also be looking for you to develop within the experienced culinary team.

Team work, good time management, and having a flexible approach to workin a 7-day week operation are essential, along with the ability to follow instructions and meet deadlines.

These positions are ideal for a forward thinking chef who wishes to increase their knowledge of food and progress his/her career in a world-renowned business.
