The Company is still expanding with 2 new openings in the pipeline for 2020. Their ethos is to give their staff a great place to work that is exceptional, vibrant, competitive, successful, professional and just a little bit ground-breaking, with bags of opportunity.
They pride themselves in their ability to bring the best out of their fantastic Chefs with constant learning provided, and freedom to experiment with new flavours, by sourcing fresh ingredients every day from their own gardens and greenhouses, to create new menus and deliver amazing dishes every day. It can be challenging for the Kitchen Porter at times but very rewarding.
The Company is currently looking for a creative and pioneering Kitchen Porter to join their kitchen team at one of the most vibrant and award-winning Hotel restaurants located in the beautiful New Forest. The position is permanent.
