PGL Travel Ltd
PGL Travel Ltd is the UK's leading provider of residential activity holidays and study courses for young people. Our guests spend their days mountain biking, climbing, quad-biking and orienteering - building up quite an appetite so our Head Chefs are crucial in keeping our staff and guests happy!
Our canteen-style mass catering operation prepares up from 100 to 1,000 covers per mealtime at the height of the season, depending on the capacity of your centre. Using as many fresh ingredients as possible, you'll provide first class nutritious meals for our guests and staff team and will be in sole charge of the catering operation. The majority of our guests are under 17 so meal times are early and as a result, our Head Chefs rarely find themselves working beyond 8pm.
A key member of your centre's senior staff team, you will be responsible for food prep, kitchen hygiene and the associated kitchen administration. This position will also allow you to develop all around catering skills and awareness including cooking, ordering and accounting of stock and staff supervision.
Positions at PGL are based around learning and development in a rewarding, supportive environment where the emphasis is on fun - and gives you the chance for real career progression, training and qualification opportunities. You'll also have the opportunity to live and work with like-minded people from around the world in a friendly team.
We offer our staff the opportunity to enrol on the nationally-recognised Apprenticeship programme in Hospitality, specialising in Food Preparation and Cooking or Professional Cooker, helping you to gain a qualification whilst earning money, at no cost to yourself.
This is a residential role, with an accommodation package and meals included. You’ll also receive a competitive wage and free uniform (no bond required).
