We are looking for a reliable, efficient, and organised part time Chef de Partie.


The hours are more sociable than industry standard and shifts generally start at 11:00 and finish at 19:30 except for College functions. There are no split shifts and rotas are done in advance to ensure staff can retain a good life/work balance. Due to the nature of a boarding school, the department works across seven days. During term time Chefs prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner and cater for events such as Boarding House Dinners. During non-term time the team prepare meals for residential lettings and sporting events such as tennis tournaments and rugby fixtures.

The post is predominantly based at the Senior School in Framlingham but may occasionally be asked to work at the Prep School in Brandeston as necessary. The Chefs at both sites work to the direction of the Head Chef.

This is a part time role working an average 24 hours a week, on a 3-day rolling rota over 45 weeks of the year. The post attracts a salary of £12,722 (plus shift allowance), based on an hourly rate of £11.22.

The College offers its employees free membership to the Sports Centre which includes access to the pool and gyms, and discounts on fitness classes, squash, and tennis courts. Staff have access to free parking when onsite, an independent pensions advisor, free meals when on duty and free uniform. We have also worked with several local businesses to offer discounts to Framlingham College employees. If you are looking for development and training, staff have access to a suite of online courses and receive ongoing training in various areas.
