Job Description

Be part of the family...

We're a family business through and through - family owned, family run, with a warm family welcome for guests and team alike. Our seven hotels are unique and set in three stunning Scottish locations. Some are big, some are small but all offer good food & drink, great beds and a ton of things to do.

Crieff Hydro Hotel

Pretty much in the centre of Scotland, we're set in a 900acre estate in stunning Perthshire. Home from home, we've been welcoming generations of families for 150 years. We have 215 hotel bedrooms, 55 self-catering lodges, six restaurants and over 60 onsite activities- there really is something for everyone!

About the role

Our Terrace Restaurant offers traditional Italian flavours with a modern twist. Working increasingly with local suppliers, we're committed to consistency of production using locally sourced products.   So, if you're excited about driving change, have a flair for all things Italian, and really want to be part of a great team, looking to make your mark, this is the opportunity you've been waiting for.

You'll be able to demonstrate your ability to work with high volumes and keep calm when the pressure's on. You'll also help train and coach the team to help them achieve their career aspirations, just as we'll help you with yours.

What we need from you:

  • Junior Sous Chef Experience - in similar 4 or 5 star setting or looking for the next step in your career
  • Passion - an obvious enthusiasm for Scottish Food produce and menu development
  • Standards - the serious bit you'll have a good knowledge of Health and Safety
  • Creativity - we want you to bring your flair and individuality to the table
  • Team focus - there are no egos here, just hard-working people who love creating memorable experiences for every guest
  • Ideas and openness - we're up for doing things differently and will try (almost) everything once
  • Fun and easy to talk to - we're looking for personality, not a corporate clone
  • Flexibility - there's no problem you can't fix

What you'll get from us

  • The chance to work in a friendly, forward thinking company with investment as a priority.
  • Great benefits - including pension, and discounts on leisure membership, food and hotel stays
  • Live in accommodation may be available
