I have had very good service from all at the Glasgow Office. They found me a temporary position, which I have now been in for more than a year. As a candidate, you are made to feel that nothing is a bother, which is not the case with some other organisations. They are very prompt at returning your calls and my weekly payment is never late or wrong. I do, however, speak more to Michelle. You are always very pleasant and friendly to deal with, which makes life a lot easier. Thank you Stafffinders for helping me.
Head Chef JobsA successful head chef must be the captain of their kitchen. All fine details must be looked after to ensure their space is run with the precision of a tight ship. A real passion for food and providing a top-notch customer experience is essential.
A quality head chef will have worked their way up the kitchen ranks throughout their career, and will now be competent in all areas of kitchen management and quality control. Including:
• Ordering and managing stock, ensuring high quality and healthy profit margins
• Overseeing all produce that leaves the kitchen
• Managing staff rotas
• Training kitchen staff to use and look after equipment
• Strong understanding and necessary Health and Safety qualification
• Monitoring stock rotation to guarantee minimal wastage and freshness of food
• Contribute creatively towards new menu ideas
• Inspire and motivate all kitchen staff to exceed company standards.
....and much, much more! A head chef should thrive in fast paced, high-pressure environments while keeping a cool head and delegating effectively to get the job done. Typically, salaries fall within the range of £28,000-£33,000 per annum.
There is no ‘typical working week' for a successful chef at the helm of a busy kitchen. Working late nights and weekends are par for the course - as is overtime during busy periods. Dedication and passion for the job are a must!
