Feel respected and supported in a fantastic work environment

Under the leadership and direction of our dynamic and extremely talented head chef, Glenburnie Lodge will recruit a team of excellent catering and hospitality professionals, focused on providing the very best service for the ladies and gentlemen we care for.

The very best chefs

Our chefs must be proud of the excellent, five-star standard meals they create.

The direct positives that this will have on our ladies and gentlemen are, the impact on their health and wellbeing and the enjoyment of the meals provided.

Our Chef’s must have excellent standards and skills. They must all have a minimum of a Level 2 Qualification in Professional Cookery or equivalent alongside an excellent understanding of HACCP, plus a Level 3 Qualification in Food Safety and Hygiene.

Food is of course very personal and our chefs must work as a team, led by the Head Chef to develop menus which reflect people’s preferences and dietary needs. We are looking for chefs who enjoy creating seasonal menus alongside the people who are cared for at Glenburnie Lodge, listening to them and cooking with passion.

Expand your skillset and advance your career as a kitchen assistant

Every role in our kitchen is equally important. Working alongside our talented chefs, our kitchen assistants support them with preparing the very best ingredients to create excellent meals as well as helping them maintain the very cleanest and most hygienic environment possible. Our Head Chef has a passion for empowering staff and teaching them skills including baking and cooking and supporting them to follow any ambitions they may have in the kitchen to develop further. Experience is preferable, however, with the right attitude, all skills can be taught.
