Job Description

Our transformation is almost complete. All five of our unique luxury hotels have undergone major refurbishment to give guests a truly outstanding experience. And now we're developing and recruiting the talent to match.

We're looking for hard working and diligent team members who relish sending food to the table knowing that everything on the plate is the best it can be. We need a Chef who takes pride in their professional life; in the way they communicate with others, in the way they look, and in the food that leaves the kitchen.

As a Commis Chef, you'll provide delicious and memorable dining experiences.  A valued member of the kitchen team who put guest experience at the heart of everything they do. There's plenty of hard work involved, as you'll already know, but we'll make sure you're well rewarded for your efforts.

You'll be involved in every aspect of the kitchen operation with the preparation of mouth-watering dishes and for making sure that our food delights customers the moment it's placed in front of them. We take an all-hands-on-deck approach to kitchen work, which makes for a busy environment, but one where we work as a great team, making tasty food!

Of course, none of this is possible without the most important ingredient in our kitchens: communication. Table 3 want their mains early? Nut allergy on table 16? Head Chef has created a new special? We need people who can keep the information flowing through the kitchen as well as the orders.

If you're a Commis Chef determined to create an environment you can feel truly proud of, there's never been a better time to join us.

A key player in the day-to-day running of the kitchen, your responsibilities will include 

  • Ensuring the very best standards of food preparation and presentation
  • Maintaining the highest standards of hygiene and safety
  • Staying abreast of kitchen admin
  • Ensuring all kitchen equipment is well-maintained
  • Following Company standards for food preparation and that mouth- watering presentation!

As any Chef will know, not all jobs in the kitchen are glamorous, but each plays a vital part in what the customer ends up eating. If you're a Chef who understands that producing great food depends as much on having clean, well-maintained fridges as it does on having perfectly chiffonated parsley in your mise en place, then you'll find some tasty rewards working for O'Callaghan Collection - like your birthday off, employee discounts, enhanced holidays and awards for long-service. And we are unique with four hotels in walking distance of each other in Dublin City Centre as well as a Support office function with roles varying from sales to marketing to finance making the opportunities for your career development endless.

Help us make this the best place to stay. For you and our guests.
