Sous Chef | £25k | Herefordshire

Our client is currently looking to recruit a Sous Chef for their boutique in Herefordshire, there is NO accommodation available, so relocation or being local to our client is a must.

The ideal candidate must be able to support the management in the pursuit of the required standards and to nurture the existing small brigade. You will be required to have experience in a minimum of a 1 rosette experience and demonstrate career stability & progress.

The kitchen is equipped with lots of the usual toys; Pacojet, waterbath, vac pac & thermomix etc
