Our Clients Hotel:

Pretty much in the centre of Scotland, our client’s hotel is set in a 900acre estate in stunning Perthshire. They have been welcoming generations of families for 150 years. There is 215 hotel bedrooms, 55 self-catering lodges, six restaurants and over 60 onsite activities– so there really is something for everyone!

About the role:

One of the hotel’s restaurants offers traditional Italian flavours with a modern twist. Working increasingly with local suppliers, they are 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 pressures 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 our client needs 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 – our client is looking for personality, not a corporate clone.
  • Flexibility – there’s no problem you can’t fix.

So what are you waiting for? If you feel you have what it takes -  apply now to become a Junior Sous Chef!
