Chef, Southern France
Have a summer adventure in the South of France as a PGL Chef
PGL is the UK's leading provider of residential activity holidays and study courses for young people.
We are currently looking for a Chef at one of our Activity Centres in the South of France. This is a unique experience for a Chef looking for something a bit different.
Lou Valagran is found on the bank of the River Cèze, with a private riverside beach and close to the famous Ardeche gorge. A playground for adventure goers! You can literally be out of your room and in the river in less than 2 minutes. The centre and staff accommodation is built into the surrounding woodland giving it a wild and natural feel.
As a Chef you will work under the direction of your Head Chef or Catering Manager, and have the opportunity to develop your all round catering skills, including prep, cooking, ordering and accounting of stock and staff management. From cooked breakfasts to packed lunches on the beach, you’ll have the chance to use your experience of working in a high volume catering environment to excel and progress within PGL’s catering operation.
A passion for catering is a must and previous catering experience is essential. We operate a comprehensive training programme to get you up to speed in PGL's catering operation, but we also look for applicants to demonstrate the following:
• Experience of delivering high level customer service.
• Excellent people and liaison skills.
• A positive approach to working in a team and problem solving.
• Enthusiasm for contributing towards and driving catering standards.
This is a varied role that includes food preparation, cooking and service of meals and ensuring the kitchen areas are clean, tidy and adhere to our health and safety standards. You'll assist the Head Chef in preparing balanced, wholesome meals that fuel our guests and staff for their day of activities.
You will also be responsible for the day to day management, training and ongoing development of the team of catering assistants. On occasions you will also be required to deputise in the absence of the Head Chef. Part of your working week will involve a combination of breakfast, lunch and evening meal shifts.
As a Chef with PGL you will receive a competitive wage with various accommodation and food packages available.
