In the Detail
Commis Chef – Bovey Castle
An opportunity has arisen for a Commis Chef to join our award-winning Kitchen team at 5AA Red Star Resort, Bovey Castle, in North Bovey, Devon.
What you’ll be doing?
As Commis Chef, you will be supporting the senior chefs by preparing fresh, seasonal and local ingredients for service in the fast pace of our busy kitchen, working alongside a first-class team of talented chefs, creating food that looks and tastes delicious.
At Bovey it is all about our guests, and our team are 100% customer focused with a ‘can do’ attitude and sense of humour, alongside an eye for detail.
What you’ll need?
You won’t be expected to have exceptional food knowledge just yet, but it is crucial you have basic cookery skills, such as Professional Cookery Level 2 / Commis Chef Apprenticeship Standard qualification, but also, just as important is that you share our passion for fresh produce.
We are also interested in your personality too. Your potential, your commitment and your ability to work under pressure alongside being an excellent team player, is every bit as important to us as your knife-handling skills.
