Job description

WE ARE FISHING FOR CHEFS (we know how much they like working with Seafood....


(Passionate ones who genuinely love their work and take pride in the food they produce.)

This truly unique and recently opened luxury boutique Hotel is now welcoming applications from professional Chefs looking to progress their career in a high quality destination property.

This is no ordinary Hotel and we are looking for no ordinary Chefs.

You must enthusiastically embrace the philosophy of 'Everything Matters'(TM). No detail too small or task too insignificant.

The roles will suit an experienced Chef de Partie who has worked in a 2 or 3 rosette kitchen or a talented and dynamic Commis Chef ready to step up to the next level.

Successful candidates are likely to:

Have a proven track record of success working at 2 rosette dining standard
Demonstrate a passion for excellence
Have a good understanding of Hygiene management

Show passion for food and delivering an exquisite dining experience
Have a flexible approach to working patterns
Remain calm and confident during high pressure service periods
Be self motivated and keen to learn
A healthy obsession with outdoor pursuits and rural living would be beneficial given the remote location and island living, together with independent means of transport.

Candidates with a drivers licence will find this advantageous in this location.

Islay: Close enough to stay connected yet far enough away to be independent.

For further details of this role together with the exciting future career growth opportunities associated with being part of an international luxury hotel company please contact me directly.

• Strong communication skills
• Excellent timekeeping and attendance
