Chef

In the engineering sector, a Chef is responsible for managing food preparation tasks within professional facilities, such as on construction sites and staff canteens.

To work in this role as a Chef you’ll need to be able to work under pressure, prepare large volumes of food, adhere to all food hygiene practices and you may be called upon to manage the food budget.
