We are a group of premium food-led pubs in the Leicester/Loughborough area. We are seeking an ambitious Head Chef to help lead our teams. We have developed a great reputation since we started operating 10 years ago. We serve fresh, seasonally changing, British pub food with some modern, contemporary twists. We always use local producers and suppliers where possible.

The ideal Head Chef will be well organized and calm under pressure. You should have an excellent knowledge of busy fresh food operations, working with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. You will be enthusiastic and passionate, with a genuine desire to learn and progress. This could potentially suit an experienced Senior Sous Chef or even possibly Sous Chef looking to take the next step in their career.

As Head Chef, you will be given all the encouragement you need in order to succeed and will play a pivotal role in menu development with our executive team. Presentation and attention to detail is key in every aspect of the role.

Requirements for a Head Chef in our fantastic Pub Group:

•	Experienced in a similar fresh food role and environment, with a genuine commitment and passion for food and quality service
•	Responsible for maintaining health and safety practices and good hygiene in line with company food safety standards within our kitchen
•	Be a team player with good leadership, communication and organisational skills
•	Have a working knowledge of stock control and operating a kitchen in line with food GP
•	Be creative and able to deliver excellent customer food service, ensuring that all food is served to a consistently high standard
•	Have at least three years experience as Senior Sous Chef or above

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing company. We are a small, hands-on, independent operator that does not have to answer to some remote head office. We design and create our own menus and we have plans for more pubs...
