Culinary creativity at the next level. Take your cooking to the nation and let the UK's biggest food retailers spread your good word!

I know what you're thinking; What really is a Development Chef and how can it improve my career? The short answer is... A Development Chef brings innovative food ideas to life, in order to meet the demanding needs of the entire population through affordable convenience. The long answer needs a conversation. Read on to decide whether you want to have one with me...

ROLE:

A major, international food business is seeking a talented, inspired and creative Chef to join an established team in their North West London site. Creating chilled ready meal products that reach millions of customers throughout the country, you will work alongside the leading UK retailers in delivering the latest trends in food, across a range of cuisine styles.

WHO THIS SUITS:

If you're a chef that has already tasted the highs (and lows) of working for some truly innovative restaurants, within talented brigades this could be a logical next step in your Chef career. Some Chefs realise working 12+ hours a day, with perhaps one day off is not conducive to a healthy life (no matter how passionate they are about their craft). This position therefore offers you an alternative option that still demands that culinary skill and creative flair, but gives you a private life and job satisfaction in equal measure. If you can bring food trends from all over the world to a factory in London, you could be ideally placed here.

WHY DIVERSIFY:

It's true whilst working long hours for little reward (we know you're underpaid if not always undervalued) can be soul destroying... BUT you probably didn't embark on a chef career to become a millionaire right?! Saying that, a Development Chef career offers longevity, real career progression, exposure to a huge range of food categories, new ingredients and various flavour profiles as well as giving you every evening and weekend to yourself. Career-wise, you'll take the knowledge of food to new levels and put yourself in a completely new sector of this industry. That ladder you're currently on is getting a little worn and you might be near the top... this one is longer, sturdier and takes you to brand new heights.

NEEDS:

Of course every great opportunity has a catch... this one is pretty simple and obvious... You must be a genuinely passionate Chef. Love food and its origins, its future and possibilities. If you only want an easier life then this won't be for you. The many benefits on offer in this career move require Chefs to present, demonstrate and work with colleagues and customers from various departments. The soft skills and ability to listen, then reply with real value, is crucial here.

NOW:

If all the above sounds right... get in touch....
