The position will be based at Buckland Brewer, but travel between schools is essential to connect with all customers of the service.  There is a possibility that the fixed term contract term could be extended or made permanent.

You will be preparing meals, using fresh ingredients where possible, designing menu using existing model menu which you will complement with fresh vegetables and fruit to create great food that pupils will want to eat. You will manage the payment of meals and the purchase of ingredients.

Full induction and support will be provided and you will be required to undertake training both on and off site on an occasional basis. You will also be responsible for completing the necessary health and safety paperwork, placing orders with pre-selected suppliers and managing food stocks.

Your willingness and ability to promote healthy eating to develop our service will be an essential part of the role to help create a whole school approach to healthy eating and a "Healthy School" environment.

You will be working alongside a very competent catering assistant and a team of Meal time supervisors who all help from time to time with the delivery of school meals.
