The Assistant Chef will be required to prepare meals for guests of all ages and lengths of stay at the centre, including guests staying in the self-catering buildings and campsites, as well as for special events, in line with guests’ individual needs and requests.  He or she will also be required to ensure that high standards of cleanliness and hygiene are consistently maintained and that equipment is clean, safe and, meets the relevant Health & Safety standards.

All applicants must have a good understanding of dietary needs and related catering options, the ability to work effectively as part of a team to complete day-to-day tasks and achieve deadlines as well as a good general Health & Safety knowledge, specifically related to safe systems of work, food hygiene and working in a catering facility. Catering for guests of all ages and for corporate functions is essential.

As Foxlease is open seven days a week, the post holder will be required to work varied shifts including mornings, evenings, weekends, and bank holidays.

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change – improving attitudes towards mental health.
