The Green Table is a bustling café in an airy, creative space on the Dartington Estate, and we are looking for an experienced, energetic, friendly, quality-obsessed sous chef who is omnivorous, passionate about food, and keen to celebrate the seasons through delicious creative cookery in our open kitchen.

This position is full time. Your hours will be flexible to cover daytime, evening and weekend opening times.

The Dartington Hall Trust is a remarkable, many-sided organisation with a fascinating history and significant future potential. We have a progressive tradition of using our 1200 acre estate to stimulate and nurture new thinking and activities that can help to improve the world we live in.  Dartington continues to forge a path that seeks to explore both individual disciplines such as learning, arts, agriculture, enterprise and social justice, and the broader notion of how they can be brought together to help create more fulfilling lives and a better society.
