A vibrant and busy children's nursery in East London, Wanstead are looking for a full time junior Chef/Cook to join their team.
A new nursery which has been established for just over a year, it is growing and developing every day. The team of 2 nursery staff manage between 50-60children on a weekly basis, helping care, inspire and educate them. They are now looking to add an exciting range of meals and options for the children and attract more families in the area to use their services.
You will be in complete charge of the kitchen which is a home-style kitchen. You will be in charge of menu planning, ordering, food inventory, budgets and preparing the food each week.

When the nursery is holding open days and parents evenings you might also be asked to prepare canapés and finger food. The meals for the children and staff are lunch and afternoon tea (early dinner). Should any of the children have special dietary requirements you would be expected to cook varied options to accommodate this.
This is a live out role and the location of the nursery is in Wanstead, E11.
Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm with an hour break for lunch.
