Selwyn College, with a reputation for friendliness and good food, is recruiting for a full-time Section Chef. We have recently successfully recruited new members of our Catering Department, and now we have just one key vacancy in our Chefs team to fill.

Section Chef

The Section Chef will assist the Head Chef in consistently producing the highest possible standard of food for our students, staff, Fellows and conference guests.

Under the direction of the Second Chefs, the Section Chef will work with other Section Chefs to provide consistently high quality food and introduce innovative dishes to enhance the overall dining experience for our customers. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a good knowledge and understanding of food, and the ability to work to tight deadlines while providing excellent service at all times. If you have a positive ‘can do’ attitude and are the kind of person who jumps in to help to ensure service is never compromised, we would love to meet you.

There is the opportunity for salary progression through performance-based increments. In addition, the College offers excellent benefits including a generous occupational pension scheme and a free meal on duty. Staff are also entitled to free use of the College gym and on-site parking.
