We are looking for an experienced and ambitious senior Chef who would relish the opportunity to work in a large and busy kitchen and theatre style restaurant with multiple live cooking stations.
All our dishes are freshly prepared, and the variety on offer ranges from specialist asian cuisine, indian dishes from our tandoor oven to made-to-order pizza and pasta dishes as well as a huge variety of starters and desserts.
As a Senior Sous chef, you’ll also have a raft of eager chefs around you, keen to soak up your experience and learn from you each day. Ideally, you’ll have had experience of mentoring and coaching junior members of the team to help them to hone their skills and improve their techniques. The Glasshouse is our largest kitchen team and you will need proven experience of managing a brigade of at least 15 chefs.
In short, we’re looking for someone who has had exposure to a range of techniques and styles of cooking and can successfully run a large team.
The Grove is one of three prestigious hotels operated by Ralph Trustees, a family-owned independent hotel group. We are a spectacular 5 star destination and resort, offering our guests a slice of tranquillity and calm, away from the stresses of everyday life.
Across our 300-acre estate, we offer a range of mouth-watering dining experiences, outdoor activities (including our famed Golf course, Walled Garden and beach) and an indulgent award-winning spa, gym and health club. Being family owned means that both our guests and our employees are treated as individuals and not one of the crowd.
Why join us?
Aside from the personal touches that come with working in a family-run business, we also offer a range of fantastic benefits that are designed to make you feel valued and appreciated as an important member of our team:
* The chance to make use of the on-site award-winning facilities such as the spa, golf course and gym.
* A staff canteen with a free meal during your shift
* A subsidised shuttle bus from Watford town centre
* Generous discounts for you and your family/friends on stays with the hotel
* Access to subsidised staff accommodation (if required)
