Chef de Partie

Permanent contract, 40 hours per week

We are Chester Zoo, and for over 80 years we’ve been a leading conservation and education charity, and an amazing, award-winning visitor attraction.

We’re also a team of passionate, talented, enthusiastic and expert people, doing everything we can to prevent extinction, from caring for animals to discovering new conservation ideas, and giving our visitors an inspirational day out.

We work hard because we love animals, we care about nature, we love Chester Zoo and, despite all the challenges that 2020 has thrown at us, we still want to be the best zoo in the world! If you think you can help us to achieve that, then we’d love to hear from you.

We currently have an exciting vacancy for Chef de Partie to join our Food & Beverage Team on a permanent basis.

The Chef de Partie role:

  • Provide support in the day to day preparation and production of food for The Oakfield kitchen, a busy, world class gastro pub and function venue 
  • Train and mentor Demi Chef de Partie and Seasonal Team Members to ensure effective and efficient work practice and delivery of an end customer service
  • Work collaboratively with the Front of House (FoH) Team to ensure seamless delivery and a world class customer service
  • Support the Senior Chef de Partie in helping to produce food to the highest standards which ensures The Oakfield maintains its world class reputation as a gastro pub and venue destination
  • Adhere to policies, standard operating procedures and safe working practices including food safety systems
  • Follow health and hygiene policies and associated legislation (for example HACCP)
  • Ensure that you, as part of The Oakfield Kitchen Team, are clean and well presented at all times
  • Stock control and ordering – under direction from the Senior Chef de Partie, ensure correct stock levels on a day to day basis, place order requests for the Senior Chef de Partie to check, after ‘sign-off’ accept deliveries, ensuring they are correct and rotate stock as required

  • Ability to demonstrate understanding of food types and production methods
  • Ideally have customer service skills

  • A ‘can do’ attitude
  • Quick learner
  • Good communication skills
  • Flexible attitude to work

Hours of work are 40 hours per week, 5 days out of 7 on a rota basis including weekends and bank holidays.

The salary for this position is £19,792.40 per annum and in addition we offer a range of amazing benefits which can be found on the Chester Zoo careers page.
