Head Chef

Job Description

The Place 

Xpress are exclusively working with an independent boutique hotel operator located on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland, looking for their next Head Chef. This stunning 5* boutique Hotel has over 20 generous bedrooms many with panoramic sea views. The property also consists of a fine dining Ala carte restaurant with a separate bistro bar room offering. This property is only about a 2-hour drive from Glasgow and is set in 20 acres of private gardens and beach with access to fishing, hiking and all the outdoors adventures you can think off.

The Job 

As the Head Chef you will be working closely alongside your team and the owners to deliver a first-class product using locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. This is a quality property with an excellent restaurant so working in conjunction with sourceability and provenance is an absolute must to ensure the highest standards and continuity of service. Providing both fine and casual dining is a must from the next Head Chef with the ability to write and cost menus for both offerings.

The Person 

The ideal Head Chef will have a minimum of 4 years’ experience in a fine dining environment, possibly looking for a step up from a Senior Sous role that has worked in a similar smaller environment. Preferably with a Rosette background but not essential as the real focus is on the quality of the food, a real foody chef would love this role as you will be part of the menu design and delivery. This is without doubt a live-in position due to location and would need someone that is happy to live on site preferably with transport,

The Rewards 

A competitive salary of £35,000, comes with very reasonably priced live in accommodation, comprising of a private bedsit flat with a large living room and a kitchenette. This is located within the property building and a healthy share of gratuities.
