Sous Chef


Description

The Shipwrights is a charming, traditional pub that was originally built to serve the fishermen and tradespeople of Padstow’s historic and bustling port.

You’ll be working in Cornwall’s foodie capital; a serene location that’s perfect for getting out on the water, exploring the estuary, and navigating the surrounding coastline.

We’re looking for an Sous Chef/Assistant Head Chef to join our talented kitchen team. Supporting the Head Chef, you’ll help ensure the smooth running of a fast-paced environment, working alongside passionate people and cooking with locally sourced produce to provide experiences that delight our guests. 

About you: 

  • Taking the helm when the Head Chef is away, you inspire the Kitchen Team and take pride in overseeing a quality food offering.
  • You have a passion for creating culinary delights from quality, locally sourced ingredients.
  • You’re a whizz when it comes to product knowledge, adapting to menu changes and specials with ease.
  • You are a natural communicator with the ability to forge strong relationships, lead by example, and embody a positive team spirit.
  • You know food health and safety regulations like the back of your hand.
  • Being commercially minded, you understand budgets and sales targets, and play your part in helping to achieve them.
  • Having a wealth of experience in a similar role means you are able to recognise when team members need help and you’ll support where needed.
  • You go above and beyond to ensure a consistently high level of service, supporting the full team including Front and Back of House during peak times.
  • You take ownership of a specific area of the kitchen, supporting the Head Chef and playing a key role in the smooth running of the food operation.
  • Keeping a watchful eye over customer feedback means you are always adapting to maintain high standards and improve where necessary.

What we will offer you in return: 

  • 30% off food & drink in our managed houses and 50% off accommodation. 
  • 20 days annual leave plus 8 bank holidays.
  • Pension
  • Fantastic training & career development opportunities. 
  • Exceptional bonus scheme. 
  • Cycle to work scheme.
  • Free staff meals.  
  • Potential bonus opportunity.
  • Potential live-in for the right candidate
      • Potential one weekend off in four   
      • Potential option to do short term contracts if required
      • Potential free 2 nights stay in one of our hotels if you work for a certain period over the summer
      • Potential staff get together/party at the end of the season
      • Potential £25 bar tab each month for staff (who work the whole month).
