Role: Head Chef
Sector: Conferencing and Contract Catering
Salary: £38000 - £40000
Monday to Friday - Excellent hours
Location: City of London
I am seeking an exceptional Head Chef for an award-winning conference venue in the heart of the City. The site is also home to a contract catering staff dining room and runs both internal and external hospitality for numbers from 2 to 350.
The site has a daily staff population of around 800 and more than 50% use the staff dining facilities. The offer is current and competes with the high street so there is lots of room for creativity here.
Along with that the conference side can host up to 350 day delegates and the food offering for them can range from canapes to working lunch to hot and cold buffets.
As Head Chef you will oversee all food provisions and production. You will have full autonomy on menus and be in a position where you are constantly updating the offer.
Many of the clients have bespoke requests so you will meet with them to design their menus and build relationships with them on a professional level.
The client on site is really open to changing and developing the offering and you will be able to make changes every day of the week!
You will write menus, be comfortable with costings, GP% and due diligence and health and safety. This could be a great career move for an ambitious and well experienced chef who has a high volume background to move into a Monday to Friday role.
The ideal candidate:
· You will come from a Large B&I or a hotel / banqueting background
· Experience in all due diligence, COSHH and Health & Safety
· Experience of managing, leading and motivating teams
· Comfortable with Volume catering
· Can cope under pressure and have experience in working in demanding sites
· Craft Trained
· A passion for delivering excellent food and standards
· Excellent client relationships
· Bags of personality and a fantastic work ethic are essential
