You will assist in providing a full catering service to our patients, relatives and staff including the preparation of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and cakes. Duties will also include liaising with staff and patients regarding meal requirements, supervising the kitchen when working a supper shift, and ensuring kitchen hygiene and cleanliness standards are maintained.

Catering qualifications and possession of a food hygiene certificate are essential.
