Chef

Coton Orchard Garden Centre,Cambridge
Restaurant
40 Hours per week, Permanent / Full Time

We are looking for a Chef to join our busy fresh food kitchen at Coton Orchard .  The Restaurant sits within Blue Diamond’s recently refurbished Coton Orchard Garden Centre.

About the Centre

Coton Orchard was planted in 1922. Like many orchards in the region it was established for the production of apples for the wholesale trade, with the bulk of its produce being marketed through London. Since fruit started to be imported from abroad, Coton Orchard is probably one of the last remaining orchards in Cambridgeshire and perhaps the most picturesque. A haven for wildlife and a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of Cambridge city centre, Coton Orchard is a patchwork of apple and plum trees, strawberry fields, green pastures and grape vines.

Coton Orchard has recently been acquired by The Blue Diamond Group, and joins them as their 19th Garden Centre.

About the Post

This position is for qualified and experienced chefs, who have experience of working with fresh food, and have a real passion for creating dishes with fresh produce.  They will assist the Head Chef with the smooth and efficient operation of the kitchen to ensure the company's reputation for food quality is maintained at all times.  It is essential that applicants must hold a food hygiene certificate.

We pride ourselves on our excellent food standards, and wish to appoint employees who will adhere to these high standards. The successful candidate will be someone who works well under pressure, and who is an excellent team player, and will help out anywhere in the kitchen when required.

Salary will be based on experience, but you can expect your role to be varied and there can be great opportunities to develop and progress your career within the Blue Diamond Group.  

 

You will work 5 out of 7 days on a shift rota, which will include work on weekends and bank holidays.

If you would like to join our friendly team, then we would love to hear from you!
