Devonshire Hall provides accommodation for around 550 students, with around 250 on a catered basis. As well as providing meals for students, it also provides conference facilities for both day meetings in term-time, and residential conferences during vacation periods. We are seeking a Chef to work within a busy team responsible for the effective and efficient provision of meals and food service. You will be expected to carry out a variety of duties including food service, cleaning duties, and monitoring stock and deliveries.

As Chef you will assist the Head Chef on a day to day basis and work with a team of Assistant Cooks, Domestic Assistants and Kitchen porters.
