About the Job

We are currently handling an exciting opportunity for a Head Chef for a highly successful restaurant on the south side of Glasgow.  The role offers an excellent opportunity to play a lead role in developing the success of the restaurant whilst adding your own culinary ideas.

About the Employer

The restaurant is a small, well-established destination in the local area, specialising in Scottish cuisine with a contemporary twist.  The owner is keen to ensure that quality is provided for the customer in a relaxed environment, which flows through from the forward-thinking way in which he leads the team, creating a positive working environment.

About the Job

As Head Chef, in this role, you will assist and support the owner in providing quality food and service with a focus on commercial results.  You will have responsibility for menu design, food quality, ordering and stock management as well and EHO compliance.  The restaurant currently outperforms its closest competitors in customer satisfaction, and you would be expected to maintain those high standards.  The restaurant is available for special events and private functions, but given the restaurant opening hours you can be guaranteed a Monday and Tuesday off every week.

You will also be expected to set and maintain exceptional performance standards through the effective use of kitchen resources and ensuring consistency in quality and value.  The guest experience is paramount, and we would expect you to be setting a great example for the junior members of the kitchen to ensure that company standards and statutory obligations are maintained, acting for the owner in his absence.

About the Person

To succeed in this role as Head Chef, you will most likely have successfully operated within a similar kitchen environment at a similar level and be able to demonstrate consistent career success.  Your attitude and ability to work well under pressure and within a team environment will be very important as will your technical expertise and leadership ability within the kitchen.  You will also most likely have a natural confidence in the kitchen and be able to gain credibility at all levels through your personable nature and ability to stay calm under pressure.

The Reward

The salary package for the Head Chef role is circa £27 as well as a profit share scheme.  If you are interested in stepping into an already successful organisation to contribute your own expertise, then we want to hear from you.  If you’re interested please send your CV to Chris Feeney at the following email:  Alternatively, if you prefer an initial confidential chat, call Chris on 07773 475518.
