Akkeron Hotels operate over 30 three and four star sites in the UK, partnering with a number of brands like Best Western Ramada Encore, Clarion and Quality Hotels along with our Forestdale and Independent Akkeron properties.
The various hotels and brands offer a wide variety of efficient and seasonal menus of varying ability requirements dependent on site / customer base.
With a large refurbishment and expansion programme underway with more than ample chef opportunities for career development and advancement within the company we need to recruit some temporary Relief chefs for interim, (short and long term) positions at various sites across the UK with varying levels of chef support required.
Permanent positions may become available if you desire.
Accommodation and meals can be provided if required and a fuel allowance is paid by arrangement.
