Are you always looking to exceed your customer's expectations with your culinary delights? Are you looking for working hours that don't include late evenings and Christmas Day? Do you want to work in an amazing location? If so this role could be for you.

What it's like to work here

The scale and beauty of Stowe have attracted visitors for over 300 years. Picture-perfect views, winding paths, lakeside walks and temples create a timeless landscape, reflecting the changing seasons. Full of hidden meaning, the gardens were created as an earthly paradise, and still cast their spell today.

Your visit starts at the New Inn visitor centre outside the gardens. This fusion of modern and restored 18th-century buildings was where visitors of the past were welcomed to Stowe.

Stop by the light and airy caf for delicious fresh food and the shop for unique products inspired by the gardens.

What you'll be doing

With your passion for food and your appetite to provide an exceptional service to your customers, you'll work with the National Trust Cookbook framework to prepare delicious food. Working with local produce you'll always be looking for ways to minimise waste and control costs and resources. With your attention to detail you'll ensure each dish is fresh, tasty and beautifully presented every time.

As a key member of our busy catering team, you'll make sure the team is working effectively to deliver great results. You may also be required, on occasions to supervise volunteers.

You'll help the catering team ensure our kitchens are presented to the highest standard and are compliant with all relevant legislation around food hygiene and COSHH.

The National Trust ethos will always be at the forefront of your mind, and you'll be proud to share our good work with our customers, you'll look to maximise sales with new ideas so that the profit can be reinvested back into our conservation work.
