Job Details:

We have a vacancy for a Cook, based in our Gloucester residence.   You will work alongside staff and residents to plan a balanced menu and prepare and cook meals.  You will be responsible for sourcing and ordering stock and ensuring the kitchen is kept hygienic and up to necessary standards. Being able to cook great tasting and nutritious meals is essential and a knowledge of how to meet different dietary requirements would be highly desirable.

Previous experience of working with people with a learning or physical disability would be beneficial but not essential.  Holding a current food hygiene certificate would also be advantageous.

National Star offer an excellent working environment and training opportunities.

This post includes evening and weekend working.

Please note that all applicants will be expected to undertake a DBS Disclosure, and undergo the necessary employer checks.
