Out and about Friday 25th January

Relief jobs coming in have been very patchy this last couple of weeks, but this is expected for the time of year.

We are happy to register new chefs for the up and coming season which will start mid to late March and will end roughly at the end of October.

Relief chefs receive good hourly rates of pay varying from £12 - £18 per hour depending on level. You are paid for a minimum of 40 hours per week over 5 days. Return travelling expenses will be paid subject to you completing the agreed work stint. And if required clean single accommodation is provided at no charge. Holiday pay is payable from day one of starting any relief job and is paid at 12.07% on all hours worked. Wages are paid weekly or monthly with weekly advances through PAYE.

Please email across your up to date CV, contactable work references and current Hygiene Certificate to (QUOTE RELIEF 2019)

We also would like to meet all relief chefs, this will be in Moffat where we are based. We will chase up references as standard then will get in touch to check your availability.

We have excellent availability of chefs and the priority of work will be given to the chefs who have worked all last season.
