An opportunity has arisen for an experienced, professional Cook to join our Catering Team. The emphasis at Queenscourt is on ‘nourishing the whole person’. Queenscourt’s catering team prepares and serves traditional home-made food every day, using good quality fresh ingredients sourced locally. In addition to our varied daily menu we also cater for anyone who has special dietary needs, i.e. people with diabetes, coeliac disease, vegetarians, those needing a pureed diet and those with specific religious beliefs.

Ideally you will have previous experience of preparing, cooking and serving nutritional meals of a high standard to patients and staff. The ability to speak with patients about their individual requirements and working with the Clinical teams to ensure that patient’s nutritional requirements are provided for is essential along with at least a basic food hygiene certificate.
