  • Have gained experience in a busy kitchen environment, preferably from a pub or restaurant venue
  • Has worked in a small brigade of between 5 and 10 chefs
  • Can follow company guidelines for dish presentation
  • Is used to working within a large company environment
  • Is comfortable with British pub food as there is a requirement for traditional dishes as well as creating your own specials

The company are offering a high range of benefits, including:

  • A starting salary between £25,000 up to £27,000
