We are OnFife and as Fife’s largest cultural organisation we specialise in making jaws drop, hearts warm, eyes light up and imaginations run wild. We work with a vast range of partners, artists and creatives and our spaces are some of Fife’s favourite places. An ambitious charity, we are built on strong values, and those values make us who we are – Fearless, Inviting, Fair and Exciting.

Along with this, you can also access discounted gym/swim memberships and other employee benefits.

The Role
Motivated and passionate chef who wants the challenge of delivering dishes that are as exciting and engaging as the shows we put on in our theatres, we want you!

We have a rare opportunity for an experienced chef to head up our new catering offering at the soon to be reopened Adam Smith Theatre. In addition to being the mastermind creating our menus you will be responsible for ordering, controlling and preparing food items for our Café Bar and in-house events, which will include using seasonal and fresh ingredients from our suppliers.

We want to ensure that we provide an experience that is satisfying in every way, and your skills in the kitchen will be an integral part of making this happen. Alongside your flair for making amazing food, you will also ensure we continue to adhere to statutory and company standards of hygiene, food safety and health and safety whilst following appropriate policies and procedures.

About You
We are looking for a creative and innovative individual who is a real ‘foodie’. You will be self-motivated, creative and enthusiastic for providing fresh food and great service.

We want you to have a passion for driving sales through seeking feedback from customers and implementing new initiatives following ‘high street’ food trends.

We are looking for someone with previous experience working in a fast-paced kitchen environment (restaurant or café experience preferred) who is naturally outgoing and has an energy to train and inspire others. This role would suit someone with the equivalent skills of a Chef de Partie who’s looking for that next step and greater autonomy.
