Work With Us

Teacher Chef

We’re looking for a Teacher Chef to run our kitchen in Suffolk.
Dates: Wednesday 28th June – Monday 3rd July 2017

The Teacher Chef role is an incredible, life changing experience. It’s the backbone of the course and at times a challenging one, but with endless rewards. You would be responsible for devising and delivering an intensive culinary course for a group of 16 students (divided into two groups), and ensuring everyone eats well at breakfast, lunch and dinner. You need to have a flair for working with food and with young people, and be able to cope with unconventional cooking spaces and long hours. Most of all we need Teacher Chefs who are able to create and lead inspiring learning experiences for students, which leave a life-long impact.
