Our Cooks prepare meals and snacks to order throughout the day, producing consistently well presented, high quality and tasty food from our seasonal menu and special boards. You may be working on your own or with assistance from kitchen assistants and waiting staff. This role is key to ensuring that we can provide the quality food service that our guests expect, providing them with another option to self-catering and allowing them to spend more precious time with family and friends.

  • Preparing and cooking food from our regular menu as well as our specials boards in line with company standards
  • Maintaining clean premises, clearing and cleaning, ensuring the work station is kept clean and tidy
  • Taking delivery of food stock, checking off delivery notes and ensuring the products are stored at the correct temperatures
  • Ensuring all stores, fridges and freezers are kept clean and tidy, whilst ensuring stock is stored correctly and rotated
  • Ensuring that all temperature checks are carried out and recorded

Due to the nature of the industry, this is a variable hours role which will include working weekends and bank holidays.

Skills & Experience

The ideal candidate will have:

 

 

  • A friendly and flexible attitude.
  • Previous experience in a similar role.
  • A commitment to producing consistent and excellent quality food.
  • Awareness of stock rotation procedures and basic food hygiene.
  • A relevant catering qualification will be advantageous.

Above all, you will need to have the right attitude. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and so we expect you to do everything in your power to make their Verdant experience the absolute best it could possibly be. We don’t believe in ‘that’s not my job’ so you will need to be adaptable and flexible to help the wider park team meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.
