Community Café and Training Hub Sessional Chef


Hours: 37.5 hours Monday - Friday
Salary: £25,000 FTE
Location: Penzance (with some local travel)

Trelya is looking for a kind, compassionate and experienced individual who has previously worked at Sous Chef level or above; a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual with a desire for sharing their knowledge, experience, and passion for good food with the individuals engaging in our training hub.

Our ideal candidate would need to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and kitchen organisation and would be responsible for upkeeping all kitchen records in accordance to current guidance. You would be required to be able to take responsibility of ordering stock and stock control, amongst other standard kitchen management duties.

We are seeking someone who can work both independently and as part of a team. Someone with a passion for simple, wholesome, seasonal and healthy food who can work alongside the café and training hub manager assisting in the delivery of our food-based group sessions and inspiring participants in our training kitchen, developing skills for life not just for the hospitality industry.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of an innovative charity, which is leading the way in addressing social exclusion. The Community Kitchen and Training Hub will build on existing services delivered at Trelya to ensure that Trelya consistently provides an enriching and educative environment giving children, young people and families the opportunity to develop and fulfil their aspirations and potential. Opportunities will be offered through the Community Kitchen and Training Hub and will include exploration of a wide range of food provision, training, accreditation, and seamless progression pathways.

This project is part-funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. Cornwall Council has been chosen by Government as a Lead Authority for the fund and is responsible for monitoring the progress of projects funded through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Please contact Trelya’s Executive Director, Sharon Rich, on 07719 310263 to discuss this opportunity further.
