About The Role
As a Head Chef at HC One, you’ll value one thing above all. Kindness. It carries across every aspect of our Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Specialist care homes. Every single person who works here understands that our residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell. And, by joining us, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.
For you, that will mean managing the kitchen team to cook and serve nutritious, healthy meals that our residents will love. You’ll provide great choice, considering cultural preferences and special dietary requirements. And, whether you’re managing the food stock, working out how to make the most of your budget or liaising with central support teams on nutrition standards compliance, you’ll always have resident wellbeing in mind above anything else.
We’re looking for someone with an S/NVQ2 in Catering & Hospitality or Professional Cookery, a minimum Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate and an understanding of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points. Beyond that, it’s all about your brilliant, positive energy and natural ability to get along with people. You’ll be organised to meet service times, thrive on autonomy to plan and prioritise and have a knack for following recipes perfectly. And, whenever you communicate with a resident or co-worker, you’ll be truly considerate and kind.
Well, after all, it’s just in your nature.
