We have an exciting opportunity in our Shoebury Nursery based in Southend-On-Sea. The nursery is part of a group of full daycare nurseries that provides childcare and support for young children and their families and works in partnership with the Southend on Sea Borough Council and the Department for Education.
We are looking to establish a list of approved flexible staff for our nursery. Flexible nursery cooks will be called upon to cover staff shortages when they arise, although there are no guaranteed hours of work.
You will be responsible for maintaining a safe, clean and healthy kitchen environment and preparing and serving nutritional meals to children and adults. You will regulate kitchen stock control and ensure that specific dietary requirements are met.
You will need a current Food Hygiene Certificate and a current First Aid Certificate plus the ability to organise, plan and cook nutritious meals. You will also need an awareness of food allergies and health and safety issues.
