Executive Head Chef 

January 2020

This is a full time 52 week position, 40 hours per week.  Flexibility is key and work will involve evenings and weekends to meet the needs of the service.  

The Catering Department within Radley College offers a wide range of food services across the 200 acre campus.  All of the services are controlled from the main catering building.  There are currently approximately 690 boys and 125 dons (teachers) and their families resident on site, together with 330 operational staff.  During the school holidays the department supports various residential courses.  

The facilities are used seven days a week for approximately 48 weeks of the year and seek to provide a friendly yet efficient environment in which the boys and College staff can both work and relax.  The College also provides a range of function and conference facilities which are used primarily for Radley College functions & events; however the College does also extend this to external clients and customers, and also hosts residential courses in the school holidays.  

Working as part of the collective management team, the Executive Head Chef will lead and supervise the kitchen team ensuring the kitchen is run to the highest professional standard, delivering a first class service to all pupils, staff and visitors.  Working closely with the Head Chef, you will manage the catering production to plan and oversee the day to day running of the core catering requirements.
