We are recruiting Chefs of all levels to join our teams in Edinburgh for the busy Summer and Edinburgh Fringe Festival season

Become part of creating one of Europe’s biggest and most popular festivals! For 3 weeks in August 2018, thousands of performers take to the stage all over Edinburgh and perform shows that are suitable for everyone’s taste whether it be comedy, dance, circus, opera and much more! The Edinburgh Fringe festival will be here to cater for everyone and your help is needed!

As the Edinburgh Fringe festival approaches, we are looking to take on a small army of hard working individuals on a Fixed Term basis however we also have various permanent positions also on offer.

You will have the responsibility of looking after all aspects of the kitchen environment – compliance with legislation and food production. You will work closely with every member of the kitchen team to ensure that high-quality dishes are produced consistently to exceed customer expectations

These roles are all on a Fixed Term Contract but there is potential for hard working, talented candidates to progress within the company and be considered for permanent positions at the end of the Fixed Term (for some venues we have permanent roles available now also)

If you are interested please apply now (it’s really simple) if you apply we will be in touch to arrange a time slot for you to come along on the day.  If you are not available on Thursday  27th June we will follow up with you at a later date.

Otherwise why not just pop along on the day with a copy of your CV (if you have one) and feel free to bring friends/colleagues along with you.
