Chef de Partie

Ludlow SY8 1EG
Salary: £18,000.00 to £20,000.00 /year

We strive to sell the tastiest food in town and work with amazing local producers to achieve this. Basically we love food and creating flavour, so let’s be honest, it helps if you do to!

Our food is different; we use the best locally sourced produce and treat it with the respect it deserves by creating simple, unpretentious, globally inspired and exciting dishes that shout about the ingredients, reflect the seasons and are full of flavour.

Working as part of the kitchen team at our extremely busy, well known restaurant in Ludlow, Shropshire you will be involved in all aspects of preparing and serving our amazing food.

We have an ethos at CSONS where everyone mucks in where they are needed, so don’t be fooled into thinking you won’t have to help on washup and with cleaning if needed too.

We expect our team to be flexible, extremely hard working and professional but we also believe that work should be fun and inclusive. We’re not going to lie, CSONS is a busy restaurant and this role will require you to stay focused, happy and professional in a high paced, potentially stressful environment. So yeah it’s hard work and you’ll be expected to work some evenings and most weekends, but were a great team that also has fun while we work!

The ideal candidate will be a team player who shares our passion for flavour, food and local, seasonal produce, so if you think you’ve got what it takes, give us a call, we’re pretty exited to hear from you!
