If you like the sound of this, keep on reading, as this may be the Chef role for you!

Our client based close to Stoke-on-Trent needs a Chef to work within a high security unit.

You will be part of a team of up to 6 Chefs, who manage and supervise op to 20 kitchen staff.

You will work an average of 37 hours per week, with every other weekend off.
You won't be required to work split shifts or doubles, and most shifts finish by 6pm latest. This is a great opportunity to get that work/life balance you might be looking for.

Generally, your shifts will vary between 7.30am starts and 5:30pm finishes, with earlier finishes on a weekend.

Initially you'll be working through Twentysix Recruitment on a temp basis, but you will get the same shift pattern as permanent staff.
You could get access to permanent opportunities as they arise within this government-based facility.

* Catering in part of a team of up to 30, supervising a small team of your own.

* Supervising the set up and clear down of each service.
* You'll need to follow recipe sheets, whilst being able to use your chef skills.
* You will also be responsible for some security and safety checks.

The skill set required is of a Chef De Partie level, but as there are supervisory requirements, could also suit someone of a Sous Chef, Head Chef or even a Chef Manager level.

Due to the supervisory element of this role, communication is just as important as the skills required.
You will be a motivator, mentor and show the ability to lead a small team.
You'll need to be a calm figure, who works well under pressure and is able to deal with a challenging environment.

Due to the rural location of the site, own transport is essential.

In return, you can expect the following hourly pay rates.

* Monday to Friday - £18.00 per hour, plus a further £2.17 per hour in holiday accrual.
* Saturday - £22.00 per hour, plus a further £2.65 per hour in holiday accrual.
* Sunday - £24.00 per hours, plus a further £2.89 per hour in holiday accrual.
