ABOUT THE ROLE
We are currently looking for an experienced and skilled Kitchen Assistant who is looking to make the progression to become a Second Chef. As a Kitchen Assistant at a brand new Barchester care home, you’ll help to provide the first-class food and hospitality that enable us to give our residents exceptional all-round care and support. A healthy, nutritious diet is vital to ensuring our residents’ wellbeing and helping them enjoy daily life with us, which is why the role of Kitchen Assistant is so important. You’ll help to produce meals and create a fulfilling dining experience for every resident. You’ll be an asset to your colleagues and your impact will reach beyond the kitchen too. There’ll be plenty of opportunities for you to get to know our residents, enhance their hospitality experience and develop your skills.

This role is for someone looking to make the progression from Kitchen Assistant to Second Chef. Training and mentoring would be available for the successful individual.
