Job description:

The St Columba Hotel is located on a very beautiful island off the West Coast of Scotland. Our hotel has 27 bedrooms and a restaurant which serves up to 80 for dinner and many more at lunchtime.

The quality of our food is central to the hotel’s reputation and our kitchen is a busy place. We are committed to serving freshly prepared, delicious food. Our certified organic garden produces much of our salad and vegetables; breads and baking are produced on the premises, and we buy fish and seafood directly from a local boat.

Features of the role:-
• Genuine partner in running the kitchen – will be in charge for 2 days a week when the Head Chef is off, plus when he’s on holiday. Input into developing new menus, systems, etc.
• Newly refurbished kitchen (due to be completed at the end of February)
• High quality local produce
• Good work life balance
• Good working environment, (we work hard to ensure an ordered, calm, positive atmosphere in the kitchen)

The successful candidate is likely to have been a Sous Chef in a similar establishment to ours, though Senior Chef De Parties will be considered. We value ‘people skills’ above all else here, so if you’re reliable, calm, positive and actively enjoy working with people, not against them, (particularly the other members of the kitchen team and front of house team), then this could well be the ideal opportunity for you.
