Job Description

Sous Chef - Independent Hotel

Perthshire - £35k+ package


The Rewards

A competitive salary circa £30-35k depending on experience is available for this role. The hotel offers an excellent benefits package including bonus potential and in-house discounts.


The Place

Xpress is delighted to be working with an independent hotel who are now seeking a Sous Chef for this Perthshire based property. Our client would also see this as a great opportunity for an experienced CDP ready for a promotion who has been working within a hotel-style property, and is now looking to get that step up and be part of a team and property that has a massive vision and is set within the rural countryside of Scotland.


The Job

As Sous Chef you will be part of the kitchen team working alongside the Head chef to reposition the hotel to become a property offering a varied food offering with a broad product offering that entices guests to stay and use the facilities within.
As Sous Chef you will work within the team reporting into the Head Chef and supporting them oversee the Chef de Partie's, Commis and Kitchen Porters across all sections of the kitchen, ensuring that the produce is prepared to the agreed standard and that cleanliness is paramount and high standards are maintained at all times.  A strict adherence to our HACCP principles is a must, from fridge management and date labelling to effective vacuum packing and blast chilling. Whilst the Head Chef is the creative force for all menus, you will be expected to engage in presenting, suggesting and promoting new and exciting dishes and to contribute menu ideas for each new menu.


The Person

You must have Hotel experience, be able to deliver A la carte and function menu food at the same time and be hands-on. Evidence of a passion for using the best produce available and the ability to prepare it profitably and to give guests a great experience should be evident in applying resumes. This role is not a Mon-Fri role so flexibility to work when needed, including weekends, and nights is pivotal. This role will suit someone with Hotel operations experience, preferably with multiple revenue streams and having worked in hotel events and hotel restaurant operations is critical.
