Tonic are searching for a Head Chef for a leading contract catering business located in Birmingham. The role is very challenging and requires excellent organisation, team work and a flexible approach. The successful candidate will be a great leader and motivator, this is a big job so it's not suitable for a head chef without the relevant experience of cooking serious volume (600+ covers a day) to a great quality with fresh ingredients.

We only want the best head chef candidates who....


Have stable work histories, any short durations can be explained due to valid reasons
Are passionate about food, service and hospitality
Are team focused and driven to be the best they can be
Have a solid knowledge of how to organise a kitchen and communicate clearly at all times


This role does not suit a first time head chef, to be considered you must have relevant experience such as large hotels, a resort or conference centre servicing in excess of 700+ meals a day. Ideally you will also have gained or held a rosette at some time in the past.

The successful candidate will be contracted to 40 hours a week, predominantly Monday - Friday, with very occasional evening and weekend work as the business requires.
