About this position:

Are you a motivated, enthusiastic and ambitious Commis Chef looking for a challenge?

We are on the lookout for creative and talented individuals to join our foodie family here at Ragdale Hall Spa.

Now don’t worry, we may be a spa (one of the UK’s most prestigious spa’s by the way) but we don’t just dish up carrots and broccoli!  Our team of 20 devoted Chefs are gastronomic geniuses and produce food that not only tastes amazing but is healthy and nutritious as well.

It’s fast-paced so if you like being busy you’ll love it!  But we also know that there is life outside the Kitchen so your 39 hour week, really is a 39 hour week, there’s no split shifts, you’ll be finished by 10.00 pm plus we have genuinely flexible rotas so you can request certain days off and yes, that includes the odd weekend!

We have a structured training and development programme and our Senior Chefs are loaded with knowledge and experience that they just can’t wait to pass on so you can be guaranteed to develop your skills ready to take the next step in your career, whether that’s with us (we hope so) or to take with you into the big wide world.

The ideal candidate will have:

NVQ Level 2 or equivalent in food preparation or professional cookery and Level 2 Food Hygiene (Desirable)

In addition to an excellent salary and bonus – negotiable on experience – we can offer many other benefits as part of a successful, independent business.
