Catering Supervisor

Michael Burns
North Tyneside
Tyne and Wear

Nineteen Recruitment are an award winning, independent agency that specialise in the supply of staff to the Education, Social Care and Public Sectors.

A fantastic client school of ours have an ongoing requirement for a Catering Supervisor/Assistant Manager to start as soon as possible, most likely until the end of the academic year in July.

The school is generally regarded as an outstanding facility, with a busy kitchen housing a hard working, talented and dedicated staff team.

Primary aged children are served a traditional school meals service providing homemade food from quality ingredients. All meals conform to the school food plan and the Government standards for school food.

Senior aged pupils have an extended menu; this includes the school meals menu as well as many other popular food choices that have evolved following consultation with school council.

This role will offer full time hours working Monday to Friday, to be disused with the Catering Manager to suit the needs of the school and catering service.

As an experienced Catering Supervisor used to a certain amount of responsibility, you will be a good team worker and team leader, able to multi-task and take on various activities in a busy school kitchen.

Candidates must have previous proven experience of working in and supporting a high volume quality commercial kitchen operation. This does not have to be in schools but could be in hotels, restaurants, event catering and so on, however school experience would be an advantage.

Responsibilities will include, but limited to:

  • Supporting the manager with the day to day catering function for the school within budget
  • Ordering and maintenance of stock, both food items and kitchen equipment
  • Support with menu development, achieving excellent nutritional food options, catering for food allergies and intolerances, and reflecting the diversity in nationalities across the school
  • Ensuring that the highest standards of customer care and food hygiene are upheld
  • People management of kitchen staff, including all training and development
  • Any related administration duties

A cooking/catering qualification would be expected, as would Food Safety/Food Hygiene Certification.

An Enhanced DBS Certificate will be required, so it would be advantageous to already possess one, if not you would be expected to apply for one via our agency.
