A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and experienced Chef to work with our exceptional catering team here at Devonport High School for Boys.

We are looking for someone who will drive our food offering forward and bring a creative approach with new ideas and dishes to our students. The successful candidate will bring imagination, enthusiasm and a real passion for food, and help us deliver an outstanding, well balanced, nutritious menu to the students who eat with us.

The catering facilities at the school are excellent and for the right person there is an exciting opportunity to work with our Catering Manager to design and deliver new menus, introduce new dishes and food concepts and make a real difference to the eating experience of our students.

The role will also involve cleaning the kitchen area and equipment as well as operating tills if required. In the absence of the Chef Manager the role will also include the ordering of supplies and leading the catering.

The ideal candidate must be able to multi task effectively, be able to work under pressure and be a team player. Previous experience in a busy commercial restaurant or catering establishment is preferred although newly qualified Chefs who can demonstrate a real passion for food will be considered.

If you have dedication, drive and a real enthusiasm for food we would like to hear from you.
