Catering Manager

We are seeking to appoint an experienced, enthusiastic and inspirational Catering Manager to lead our dedicated catering teams across the Trust. The Catering Manager post is a new role that will be pivotal in the future development of catering services across our Trust including the exciting introduction of Bistro provision for Sixth forms and staff. 

The role will be both strategic and operational, working Trust wide with school catering teams and the Trust’s Central Support team to develop the catering provision across all schools. The aim is to deliver healthy, high quality, nutritional meals in line with food standards, whilst providing excellent customer service. 

Reporting to the Trust’s Director of HR, the post holder will have overall responsibility for ensuring the Trust’s quality of dining is outstanding, improving the dining experience for staff and students, whilst managing and developing a high functioning catering team. 

Whilst the post will be based in Ashington Academy, where a new dining room and sixth form Bistro are due to open in September, you will be required to travel to all schools within the Trust.
