Head Chef - Village Pub North of Newbury - Fresh Food - Full menu Autonomy 

I am looking for a head chef with a background in pubs and working with fresh food.  My client is a local village pub run by a husband and wife team and now after several years their head chef is moving on.  They would like to have new chef with experience as a head chef or a strong Sous Chef who is looking to move up and take on the kitchen.
  • The Role: Head Chef.
  • The Salary: Up to £30,000 dependant on experience.
  • The Bonus: You will receive a £50 per week bonus for achieving your GP target.
  • Benefits: Daily tips and food on shift.
  • The Hours:  The Kitchen is closed on Sunday evenings & all day Monday.  So you are likely to have Mondays & Tuesdays off every week.  You will be required to work split shifts.
The pub has a great kitchen that is well equipped for all your needs and the pub has a busy local trade that averages 50+ covers per day and more on the weekend.  There will be a big emphasis on Sunday roasts.

There is a small team in place and you will predominantly be the only full time chef but you will be supported in the kitchen by the owner and by extra staff on the busy shifts.  
As the business grows and with more pubs in the future this position will very much lead into a senior management role.

  • Takes pride in what they do and genuinely cares.
  • Has had at least 2 years' experience in a senior position in a high-quality pub kitchen
  • Is reliable, conscientious and punctual and will be a role model who immaculate in presentation and is comfortable talking out front with both our guests and teams.
  • Is passionate about using fresh, seasonal and local produce.
  • Understands the local market and can write well put together and properly costed menus that suit the clientele and the brief for the pub.
  • Is extremely organised, works well under pressure, has a flexible approach to working hours and leads by example.
  • Is able to adhere to standards and procedures and can hit financial and management targets.
  • Has an excellent working knowledge of HACCP and COSHH.
  • Most importantly has a positive approach to bringing a bit of fun and engagement at the pub.
