Head Chef

Apply
Manchester

Metropolitan Pub Company is super excited to welcome our first pub in Manchester, The Fountain House! We are looking for a creative Head Chef to bring our innovative, fresh and delicious food up north!

The Fountain House will bring fresh, seasonal and innovative premium gastro pub food, premium wine and craft beer selections alongside a charming pub experience to the heart of Manchester. When it reopens in September, The Fountain House will initially open three of its five storeys to customers - with the lower ground floor for premium gastropub dining, a charming pub experience on the ground floor and private dining and function space for weddings and meetings on the first floor.

The Role:

Our menu changes when the leaves fall, the temperature drops, the flowers come out and the sun shines. So while we always have pub favourites (with a bit of extra TLC on top), there's always something new to work on too. What? Well, that's up to you. You'll help develop and design the menu, train the team and take charge of everything. The menu - and the job - really are what you want to make of them.

So we're just as interested in who you are as we are in your cooking. Of course, you'll need to know the ins and outs of stock control, rotation and ordering, and how ingredients change with the seasons. But it's more than that. What are you like to work with? How do you rally a team? Are you calm when things don't go to plan? What makes you laugh? We want to get to know you and your way of doing things. And find out how you can bring them to The Fountain House

What's in it for you?

- Competitive Salary + Bonus (…+ service charge)
- 31 days annual leave
- 33% discount across all MPCo and Greene King sites
- 25% Friends and Family Discount Scheme
