Contract Dates: June – August 2018

We require Assistant Cooks for our Residential Summer Camps in Lancashire, Cheshire and the Midlands. The position will require the successful candidate to be part of a small team preparing and serving three quality meals a day for up to 300 young people and staff.

For this position, the cook’s assistant will be supporting the cook and pot washers to ensure the ‘end result’ ie: the correct meal served at the correct time, happens for our clients. The hours the Assistant works and the style of work will be at the cook’s discretion but will be a basic split shift of around 7 hours per day. The assistant will be required to be on-site, during the day, as part of the High Adventure Team and will provide meals from Monday lunch to Friday lunch. Living in – Tent provided.
