Chef - Award-Winning Family Business
The Oystercatcher, Polzeath

Are you looking to build on your kitchen or hospitality experience? Or perhaps you’re fresh out of catering college and eager to kick-start an exciting career?

If you’re passionate about fresh, locally-sourced food and want to work in one of the South West’s most beautiful locations, this is a great opportunity to join St Austell Brewery as one of our Chefs.

Who will I be working for?

We are St Austell Brewery, a family-owned, independent business that is passionate about great food and drink and delivering the very best to our customers. We produce award-winning beers and have pubs and hotels across the South West, from Bath and Bristol, to the Isles of Scilly.

Situated in Polzeath, a renowned surfing destination on the North Cornwall coast, the Oystercatcher offers self-catering accommodation and local pub food. We are now looking for talented and enthusiastic Chefs to join our professional and friendly team.

Are there any benefits?

- Salary of up to £12 per hour DOE
- 30% off food and drink at our managed houses and 50% off accommodation from your first day
- Pension scheme
- Excellent training (many of our managers started off in entry level roles)
- Employee reward programme - if you provide a fantastic service, we’ll make sure it’s recognised
- Join a business that supports local charities, good causes and individuals in need
- Cycle to work scheme

This is a brilliant opportunity to become an important member of a tight-knit, hard-working team who are passionate about delivering amazing dishes.

You’ll join the Oystercatcher at an exciting time - we’ve just undergone a major refurbishment and are opening our doors for the summer season, so you’ll benefit from first-class facilities and a fast-paced, engaging work environment.

We believe our people are the heart and soul of our business. As such, we offer excellent development opportunities to enable you to learn, grow and thrive as part of the St Austell family.

What will I be doing?

As a Chef, you’ll deliver high-quality dishes for customers at the Oystercatcher.

You’ll help to prepare classic pub food that looks great and tastes delicious, from salads and burgers to moules frites.

Initially, you’ll be mastering the basics on the griddle, cooking steak and chicken to a high standard and frying sides to accompany meals. You’ll have plenty of support to increase your abilities and take on new challenges as they arise.

What do I need?

To join us as our Chef, you’ll need:

- Some kitchen or hospitality experience OR a catering-related qualification
- A full driving licence and access to your own transport (due to our location)
- Great communication skills
- The ability to work well as part of a team

It would be great if you had a Food Hygiene qualification, but this isn’t essential as training will be provided.

We’d love to hear from you if you’ve worked as a Kitchen Porter, Kitchen Assistant, Catering Assistant, Bartender, Front of House Assistant, Hospitality Assistant, Waiter or Waitress.

Other companies may call this role Chef, Commis Chef, Chef de Partie, Trainee Chef, Line Chef or Restaurant Chef.
