Cook - Full-time, Permanent, Corrymeela Ballycastle

Closing date: 
18 Sep 2015
The kitchen provides meals for up to 150 people per day. These can vary from family groups with many children, to groups of teenagers and adult conference groups.

The variety of groups means differing demands on style, volume and variety of food which the kitchen needs to produce.  The delivery and the quality of the food and the approach of the Kitchen Team are a vital aspect of the experience which individuals and groups have during their stay at the Centre in Ballycastle. The primary area of responsibility as part of the Kitchen Team is to oversee the preparation, cooking and service of meals to our visitors ensuring excellent Environmental Health and Food Hygiene Standards are met.
