We are the largest care provider in Cornwall. We are a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity, giving practical assistance for all types of care.

"We believe in going above and beyond offering high-quality care, going that extra mile to improve lives every day."

As a Chef for Cornwall Care, you’ll be working in our Penberthy home alongside a team of likeminded individuals who all genuinely care about those people whose home you are working in. The chef is there to plan and prepare nutritious food on a daily basis, ensuring that all ingredients purchased and used are fresh, within budget and meet the dietary needs of our residents. Working sociable and contracted hours providing you with a great work/life balance.

Warm and welcoming, with homely touches, Penberthy has a real family feel. Ask any long-serving member of staff what keeps them here, and they will tell you it’s the people they care for that makes the magic. Those residents, some with mild to moderate dementia, are classed as friends and our staff light up when they talk about them.

Everyone joins in the fun activities, from a song and a dance to bingo of course! We are not a nursing home, though it’s physically and mentally hard work nonetheless – our brilliant and diverse team are super supportive of each other. So bring plenty of positivity and you’ll fit right in.

What you’ll do:

· Prepare, cook and present well-balance food and beverages to the highest quality, ensuring that both cultural and dietary needs are met for the residents in your home. Assist and enable a client with eating and drinking

· Work closely with your care colleagues and listen to the residents in order to plan food that reflects choice and preferences, whilst at the same time, encourages high levels of consumption and enjoyment of food

· Be responsible for the purchase of stock in accordance, whilst monitoring and controlling the service and quality from the suppliers.

· Maintain the excellent standards of hygiene and cleanliness throughout the kitchen environment in order for you to meet and exceed the required standards of practice as prescribed by Environmental Health Agency.

· Demonstrable experience of working in a ‘Safer Food Better Business’ environment.
