Job description:

I am looking for candidates for a sous chef position in the South of Scotland in a busy town not far from the Border.

You will be working alongside and covering for the head chef on time off.

Good local train service to Carlisle which has a good night life, we have good amenities in the town and good trains and bus links generally.

There is scope for all team members to have input into the menus; signature dishes.

All dishes are made freshly so a good understanding of cooking fresh produce from pan to plate is a must.

You will work mainly straight shifts, although there will be some split shifts to cover holidays.

A good mix of trade between the restaurant and functions.

This position is available now for the right candidate.
