Description

Looking for a mouth-watering job?
With more than 250,000 young guests enjoying a PGL holiday each year, we have a lot of hungry mouths to feed!

We’re currently recruiting experienced Cooks for the 2008 summer season, to take charge of the food preparation at several of our activity and watersports centres in the south of France.

PGL Travel Ltd is the UK’s leading provider of residential activity holidays and educational courses for children. We operate more than 30 centres throughout the UK, France and Spain, offering trips to groups of visiting British schoolchildren.

This position gives you the opportunity to build on your cooking skills in a fun and rewarding environment and gain staff management experience. You'll report to a Catering Manager, whose role is to oversee the kitchen administration and staff training and management.

Our centres vary in size, with the largest catering for more than 900 guests and staff and the smallest cooking for just 50. Most centres cater for between 120-300 people each meal time. We believe we offer our young guests and staff a balanced, wholesome choice that fuels them for their day of activities.

Requirements

This role would suit someone with at least 12 months experience of cooking in a high volume catering environment, looking for their next step up. The position would also be ideal for anyone currently working in a catering role in a ski resort and looking for seasonal summer work in between winters.

We offer Apprenticeship and NVQ training opportunities for our staff.
