You stand a great chance if:
*You have previous Head Chef experience, particularly in seasonal environments
*You have proven ability to engage, manage and support a team
*You understand the importance of company standards and you constantly consider these in the way you work
*You know what it takes to run a busy kitchen with great pride and panache
