Chef / Cook

Fed up of the stress of delivering 100+ covers a day or night? Perhaps it’s the long, unsociable hours that are wearing you down? Or maybe you’re just bursting with brilliant ideas for menus that just aren’t being listened to…

If any of the above is ringing a bell, you’ll be pleased to hear that we’re looking for two Chefs / Cooks to join the catering team at The Chimes, a new luxury retirement development under our management.

Who are we?

Kingsdale Group manages property on behalf of private residential leaseholders. Our aim is that every development we manage is attractively presented, well maintained and staffed by friendly, helpful and efficient people. We want each development that we manage to be a source of pride for those who live there.

With the final build due to be completed during July, ‘The Chimes’ on Lime Grove in Cheadle (Greater Manchester) is a brand-new 48 apartment luxury development that features amenities such as a restaurant, hairdressing salon, spa suite, lounge and 24-hour on-site support and optional tailored care if required. The development is easily accessible with great road links, located just off the A34 and close to M60.

What will this role of Chef / Cook entail?

As a Chef / Cook at The Chimes, you’ll be the key ingredient in making the restaurant and catering functions a focal point for social activities between owners. You’ll be stepping in to a role where your creativity and passion for food will shine. 

Imagine having the freedom to put together a menu that ties in with a particular theme… Saturday’s could be a black-tie dinner, Tuesday’s could be an Indian night – the possibilities are limitless, and as long as the owners are on board with it and it’s within budget, you’ll have the full support of your colleagues in bringing your culinary ideas and themes to life.

You’ll be working with high quality fresh produce and catering for around 20 to 40 covers on average a day, although this can vary. You’ll work to a budget and also be responsible for the ordering and delivery of fresh produce and general provisions.

Working closely with the General Manager and Duty Managers to plan and agree menus, you’ll take into consideration any dietary requirements of individual owners and make sure a varied and nutritionally balanced menu is delivered.

What will I need to be considered for this Chef / Cook role?

  • Proven experience as a Chef / Cook
  • Creative and full of ideas
  • Ability to remain calm in an ever-changing environment
  • Passion for delivering the highest standards of food

What will I receive in return?

As a Chef / Cook at The Chimes, you’ll receive a salary of £20,592 (pro rata, equivalent to £11 per hour), along with an enhanced pension scheme.

Contract: Permanent, working circa 15 to 20 hours per week, comprising 5 to 6-hour shifts. Flexibility is available with working days and times, to be discussed further at interview.

All applications for this Chef / Cook vacancy are to be submitted online, and strictly no agency calls or agency CV submissions.
