Recruitment

South Farm is a successful and unique wedding venue located in beautiful rural surroundings in South West Cambridgeshire. The business is a well-established and successful family run enterprise run by James and Philip Paxman and Christine Lyon. We are the largest wedding business in Cambridgeshire with a good forward order book and are therefore lucky enough to be able to offer secure jobs.

We provide a very professional service to our clients and always aim to be flexible, transparent and deliver above expectations in everything we do. No matter what your role at South Farm we expect everyone to work together as a team, have fun and work in a professional, trustworthy and reliable manner.

Kitchen Assistant/Porter Position Available

We are looking for a Kitchen Assistant/Porter to reinforce our current team.

Kitchen Assistants provide essential support in ensuring that all areas and equipment in the kitchen and prep areas are kept clean and hazard free. Working days are varied and duties can include kitchen preparation at the beginning of the day, the operation of the dish washing machine, cleaning pots, pans, crockery and glasses and sweeping and washing floors as required, along with any other tasks as requested by the Head Chef.  Some food preparation work will be expected and you will also be assisting in the plating up of dishes alongside our team of six chefs and other kitchen porters.

Experience of working in a similar environment, knowledge of COSHH and a Basic Food Hygiene certificate would be an advantage but is not essential as training will be given. This job will involve some heavy lifting and working with chemicals.

Our ideal candidate would be friendly and motivated with a positive working attitude and be able to communicate well with other team members.  Previous relevant experience in a busy and productive commercial kitchen would be a bonus but not necessary.

We are located 10 minutes from Royston in a rural area and candidates will need their own transport.

The role is based on a 37.5 hr week and will involve weekend and evening work. Salary dependent on experience and suitable candidates will need fluent English.
