This will vary dependent upon the choices offered and selected by individual residents from the Menu of the Day. You will also ensure that the kitchen is kept clean and tidy, adhering to the relevant required Food Hygiene, and other legislative, regulations. We require dedicated applicants with a professional attitude, and that special caring quality that sets them apart from the rest.
