Executive Chef Jobs

Executive chefs have the overall responsibility for everything related to the kitchen.  Depending on the size of property an executive chef is fully stretched to cover menu planning, stock control, stock rotation, recruitment and training of staff, working to budgets and bring a sound awareness of the market. 

Customary career progression for an executive chef starts with a firm grounding in all sections of the kitchen and working your way up through the kitchen ranks. You may not always be involved in preparation and cooking; however this would be dependent on the size of the property and the kitchen brigade.

Executive Chef Jobs expertise

Executive chef jobs salary would be in the region of £50,000+ for jobs up and down Scotland.
