**Area Chef - Educational Contract Catering - £25,000 to £26,000**

If you are an Area Chef currently but fed up with the long and unsociable hours but still love the variety and interest of working on a multi-site basis then this may well be the job for you.

We are currently on the look out for a new member of the senior management team for one of the leading Educational contract caterers in the UK.

This particular role is a varied one, working over numerous different sites looking after both primary and secondary education, leading from the front, covering unit chef managers as required, maintaining standards and of course, cooking great food.

The ideal candidate will have a positive attitude and will be looking for potential progression, you will also have extensive experience in cooking innovative meals from fresh ingredients. Current site based Chefs / Chef Managers looking for the step up would be encouraged to apply also as this represents a chance to enter into a great business as the position presents genuine opportunities for progression into more senior roles.

Experience in a similar role is preferential, potentially with another contract catering company, but certainly working with fresh food on a daily basis. You will need to show drive, ambition, the capability to run a high volume service effectively with an ability to motivate and nurture talent within the team.

We are looking for a flexible and self motivated chef for this role with great communication skills and the ability to adapt and innovate as required.

The position is paying circa £25,000pa and there will be a millage payment on offer run through the company scheme, this is paid on a monthly basis through the expenses process.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
