Backed by one of Scotland’s best-loved chefs, this is a phenomenal opportunity for a Sous Chef to put the last pieces of the puzzle together before stepping up to Head Chef level.
The Job
The role will involve overseeing the kitchen operation in the absence of the Head Chef and its day to day running, including staff management and training, creating daily menus and maintain the outstanding reputation of the kitchen. The kitchen team includes 7 chefs and KP’s and you will be tasked with ensuring everyone gives 100% to every dish that leaves the kitchen.
Part of the ethos of the hotel is to work with what is available locally, so there is an element of foraging for various ingredients involved as well as growing herbs, fruits & vegetables for use in the kitchen.
There is a steady flow of weddings and functions, given the areas natural beauty, it is an ideal location for such events, and the food should always be a big talking point. The restaurant can do around 40 lunches and about 45 dinners every day, with the focus being on giving a fantastic guest experience.
The ideal Sous Chef should have experience working in a rosette awarded kitchen, have solid kitchen financial knowledge and a genuine love of food. You should be able to motivate your team and inspire confidence throughout the brigade.
The Benefits
The position comes with a highly competitive salary plus tips & other benefits.
There is also accommodation available within walking distance, though due to the location of the hotel, this position may be more suited to someone who can drive & has access to their own transport.
If you are thinking this could be the job for you, or if you have any questions about the job, call the office on 0141 887 1155 & ask for Paul to have a chat about it.
Ready to Apply?
If you’ve got a current CV ready to send, hit apply and we will get in touch.
If you’d like to know more, call the office on the number mentioned before or you can connect with me on LinkedIn - & we can go over this role.
Should you be selected for an interview for this role, you’ll be invited to the hotel for a look around to find out for yourself if this is a job you could see yourself doing.
