    Stocks Hotel is a high-quality luxury country house hotel on the Island of Sark.  Owned privately by a local family the hotel re-opened in 2011 following a major refurbishment of the entire hotel, including the restaurant, poolside bistro and bar, and since that time has achieved its ranking of the top hotel on Sark, and the second hotel in the entire Channel Islands on Trip Advisor.  In 2019 the hotel achieved 4 AA silver stars and 3 rosettes and was recently awarded Travellers Choice in the Trip Advisor top 10 small hotels.

    The hotel is currently looking for a dedicated staff chef / breakfast chef who is responsible for the breakfast shift and twice daily, staff food. The two main tasks will include preparing and working the breakfast shift for hotel guests, as well as preparing two meals a day for a team of up to 25 staff members.

    The hotel’s two food and beverage outlets include a fine dining restaurant used for breakfast and dinner and a poolside bistro style operation offering more relaxed lunchtime and informal evening meals.  The hotel has developed substantial organic gardens to provide local produce for the hotel to accompany the local Sark or Guernsey based suppliers of fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.

    The hotel also caters for some function business including a small number of weddings ranging from 6 to 120 guests and corporate functions / private board away days and private family functions.

    The breakfast/staff chef needs to be passionate about high quality food and cleanliness, enthusiastic, hardworking and must be able to demonstrate catering skills. Our breakfast/staff chef should have worked in a similar environment.  The breakfast/staff chef should have an ability to work with a hotel kitchen team, as well as run their own small, designated section. A working knowledge of ordering from suppliers is needed. and be able to work with the General Manager and head-chef. It is important that our staff eat healthy food that maintains their energy levels all day long.

    This position is a live-in position with accommodation.  Due to the size of the Island this position would ideally suit someone who is happy to make their own entertainment and integrate into the local community.
