Cook - Isle of Wight
PGL have a fantastic opportunity for a Cook to join the Catering team at Little Canada, our stunning outdoor activity centre on the Isle of Wight.
Our guests spend their days mountain biking, climbing, quad-biking and orienteering and building up a large appetite so our Cooks are crucial in keeping our staff and guests happy. Using as many fresh ingredients as possible, you'll provide first class nutritious meals. As a Cook, you'll report to the Head Chef and be able to develop your all-round catering skills and awareness, which includes cooking, ordering and accounting of stock and staff supervision. This provides a great development opportunity for an aspirant Head Chef of the future.
Key responsibilities include:
- Preparing food and managing the catering team to provide excellent food and service;
- Conducting training and overseeing the catering team;
- Complying with PGL’s Health and Safety and environmental standards;
- Managing the financial aspects of the team to ensure effective cost control;
- Managing and developing yourself as an individual.

You will have the ability to manage your team in a fair, consistent, and respectful manner and be effective in developing and encouraging positive internal and external partnerships.
