We are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced cook who will be required to work part-time in a residential environment specifically for vulnerable young people at our residential house in Kirkintilloch. You will be required to plan menus with a well-balanced and nutritional diet, work to a budget, order/receive supplies, and maintain high standards of hygiene by adhering to company policies & procedures including HACCP & COSHH. You will also be required to teach young people the skills that you require for day to day living. You should also have the ability to interact with young people aged between 8 and 16 years old.

The successful candidate should ideally possess a food hygiene certificate.  

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young people we look after, therefore the successful candidate will be subject to 3 reference checks and a PVG Scheme Record check.

If you have applied previously and were unsuccessful, we would like to hear from you again if you feel you have gained new skills or experience.

If you do not necessarily have the experience for the role, however, have the passion for working with our young people and feel you have transferable skills and qualities to do so, we would like to hear from you.
