Live-In Position for Couple - Family-Run Hotel - Cook & General Assistant

Isle of Skye, Highland
Competitive hourly rate of pay. Free room and board.

Full Time

We are seeking an enthusiastic couple to join our small team at Viewfield House in the Isle of Skye.

We are looking for a cook, and a general assistant (waiting tables / housekeeping). Food and board provided. Shared days off and shifts.

COOK: Shifts are split, cooking breakfast in the morning, followed by handling orders, advance prep for dinner (making bread, soup, deserts, etc.) and cooking lunch for live-in and on-duty staff. You will start the evening shift between 5.30 & 6 in the evening.

Our dinner menu changes daily. We serve a three-course set menu, with two choices per course: soup or another starter; meat or fish for the main course; a homemade desert, or ice cream to finish. (Vegetarian options provided on request.)

We are looking for someone passionate about food. Enthusiasm is valued as much as prior experience, so do not be put off applying if you have no professional cooking experience. If you are a good cook and enthusiastic about flavours, we would be happy to hear from you. Almost all of our cooking is done on an Aga. As our kitchen set up is a little unusual, there will be a training period to familiarise you with Aga cooking, and the sort of dishes that we like to offer. That said, there's lots of room here to bring your own ideas once you've found your feet.

GENERAL ASSISTANT: Shifts are also split, in the morning you will be waiting tables in the dining room at breakfast followed by housekeeping. In the evening, you will serve drinks to guests and wait tables in the dining room. 

You will be working closely with other waiting and housekeeping staff and we are looking for a friendly, hardworking addition to our team. You must be as proud about maintaining spotlessly clean bedrooms and bathrooms as you are about offering friendly and professional service. We want all of our guests to leave feeling they have made friends, so a warm, friendly manner is important. 

We are a small business, and there are few lines of demarcation, so you must be flexible about what tasks you carry out. You must be willing to answer phones, assist with food prep as needed, and to carry out tasks such as unpacking orders, lighting fires, filling log baskets, etc, as needed.
