This well-established company based near Cannon Street are looking for a Head Chef on a part-time basis to become part of their friendly team of staff.

The client is hoping to find a permanent chef to work on a part-time basis, committing to approximately 4 events per month, ranging from four-course fine dining private dinners to larger-scale lunches for the company.

The chef will be given a list of fixed dates for the year, and be expected to commit to extra days (approx. 5-10) per year that the company may require. They will typically be 20 lunches of 10-25 covers and 10 dinners of 50-60 covers per year.
