We are the largest provider of Nursing, Midwifery, Health and Social Care students in the East of England, and we are also among the UK's leading universities for degree apprenticeship provision, working with hundreds of employers across the UK.

    About the role:

    The Catering Service in Cambridge currently operates two restaurants, coffee shop and provides hospitality for meetings and events. Your role as Chef would involve the preparation, cooking and presentation of high-quality food for ARU's students, staff and external clients. You'd be supporting the Head Chef with smooth running of our kitchens. This is an exciting time to join our team – we've just completed a major refurbishment of our largest catering outlet in Cambridge and have a clear vision for the future of the Service.

    You will be a passionate foodie with creative flair, who keeps up-to-date with food trends. You'll be particularly excited by street food, but you'll also be able to turn your hand to buffets and formal dinners. You'll have experience of working in a medium/large professional kitchen and possess a wide range of cookery skills. You'll be comfortable working as part of a team but will also be happy to work independently and unsupervised.

    Working hours will be mostly Monday-Friday during the day, however with advance notice there will be occasional evening and weekend work to cater for events and residential summer schools.

    What we offer:

    We offer paid overtime in return for additional hours worked. Our chef team don't work split shifts, and we offer bank holidays off in addition to a generous holiday entitlement.

    If you're an experienced Chef De Partie, with a recognised qualification in Professional Cookery and a certificate in Food Safety with a positive attitude and a passion for food, we'd love to hear from you.
