Six weeks at CIS

Time has flown by since the start of September when I started at Chefs In Scotland.

The brewery Galldachd na h-Alba takes up a lot of my time. I have been doing a lot to try and make the building good, get the change of use from the council and register the business.

I spend one or two days a week upstairs in the recruitment office throwing myself into the world of chef recruitment. The most difficult part, without a doubt, is getting chefs to answer their phones! So if you're reading this chefs, please pick up. I have had to learn very quickly and have made more than a few mistakes when answering the phone (sorry Lillian!). I am , however, starting to recognise our regulars but there are a lot.

I also spend time organising all of the Chefs In Scotland properties, there are 8! I'm still to see the one in Spain but that might be a tad far for a day trip. We are hoping to have Nether Cottage in Crocketford filled with new tenants soon.

Golfing in Scotland is another project I have been working on. The idea is to replicate CIS in the golf world, promoting golf packages and job vacancies. The site is live now

Working at CIS is like having four jobs rolled into one, it's great! I guess I should have know that though with the job title 'Director of special projects'.
