We’re looking for a Head Chef to join our award-winning team. We have 6 different food led venues with quite different styles so we like to think we have something for everyone no matter your background

We are looking for a candidate with head chef experience in a high turnover environment, serving 100-200 covers per shift.

Our head chef will be responsible for being a stickler for detail and take pride in every dish that leaves the kitchen. We expect our chefs to be able to work well both unsupervised and as part of a team in a fast-paced environment, with a positive attitude and eagerness to learn and innovate.

Cru Holdings has been leading the charge in exceptional hospitality experiences since 2009. We continue to invest and innovate in our venues and our people – even during the recent pandemic – to ensure every customer has an unforgettable visit.

With six incredible venues across the Highlands and over 100 staff throughout the region, we’re looking for the right person to join our team. We need people with the personality, ambition, and commitment to allow us to continue to develop and grow our business.

We recently became an accreted Living Wage Employer, thanks to our commitment to fair pay and great working conditions. Positions with Cru Holdings don’t come up very often, so what are you waiting for?

Work hard, play hard

We love to celebrate our team’s efforts and achievements. We offer quarterly thank-you bonuses, events, and a swanky black tie staff awards do every year. It’s important to us that each and every one of our hard-working team feels valued and respected.

We want to turn the world of hospitality on its head. Work-life balance, mental health support, learning and qualification opportunities, on-the-job mentoring… they’re all a core part of what we do.
