Duty Chef

Location: Tebay Services

Dept: Catering

Job Code: TN154

Good food is at the very heart of everything we do. We believe good food matters. So we serve it where you'd least expect it - on the motorway. We were the first family run motorway services on the UK roads and over the past 40 years have grown to a business which has over 1,000 people working with us over six sites.
We couldn't do anything without our family of people working together to create long lasting positive memories for our customer. We are proud of our difference and we are constantly striving to do it better. We work with people who really care about food and where it comes from and want to share this experience with our customers.
Our first motorway service area, at Tebay, opened 45 years ago when the M6 was built through the Dunning family farm. We work with over 70 local producers within 30 miles; food with locality and a sense of belonging is at the very heart of everything we do. We believe proper food matters so we serve it where you'd least expect it, in our Farmshops and Kitchens, on the motorway
What we're looking for
As a chef at Tebay Services you will join one of our shift teams and will play an essential role in preparing breakfasts and accompaniments and putting the finishing touches to the dishes created by our team of chefs in our central production unit. 

You should have previous experience in a catering or kitchen environment, preferably in high volume production. Previous experience as a chef would be an advantage but is not essential.
