We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate junior pastry chef to join the brigade of our client's 1 Michelin star kitchen in Sussex.


You will be working in the magnificent surroundings of a stunning country house hotel, cooking in a state of the art kitchen with a young, enthusiastic team around you.

This is a fantastic and rare opportunity to gain experience working at an extremely high level, learning from a very talented head chef and a fantastic pastry team.
