Chef de Partie

December 8, 2021

About the Role

Our brigade is a friendly, welcoming team of passionate and driven team players who seek to create mouth-watering classic and innovative dishes using the very best locally-sourced ingredients. If you are an ambitious, creative and outgoing chef, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop and progress in your career.

You will be joining a brigade of 15 chefs, working across our two award-winning kitchens – one in the castle and one in the clubhouse - to provide both classic and innovative dishes for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Menus are ingredients-led, utilising the fabulous range of produce available from the club's own kitchen gardens, as well as the wealth of world-class ingredients sourced right here on our doorstep such as fish, shellfish and game.


As a key member of our culinary team, you will bring your knowledge, skills and drive to support your fellow chefs in the day to day running of our kitchens. You'll learn the secrets of long-standing favourites as well as contribute to the design and development of new seasonal dishes for both our traditional fine dining experience in the castle, and the relaxed brasserie-style clubhouse with its open 'show' kitchen.

From prep to the pass, you will work to the highest of standards ensuing orders are swift, and presented with the care and attention to detail our members come to expect of our world-class club.

Required Skills and Experience

You are approachable, friendly, enthusiastic and hardworking. You have previous experience as a Chef de Partie within a high-quality establishment and you are able to present and plate imaginative and attractive dishes.

You have a genuine passion for hospitality and take pride in working to the highest of standards. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and are confident and self-motivated. You are a team-player and enjoy working alongside colleagues in what can be a pressured environment.

You are willing to learn and take direction, and are keen to progress your role through training and development.


£10.76 per hour, plus share of gratuities & service charge.

Gratuities & Service Charge

In addition to the base rate of pay, employees of The Carnegie Club also share in gratuities (tips) and the service charge (an additional charge levied on room rates and other services at the Club that is paid directly to staff, similar to a dividend).

Gratuities and the service charge are paid to all employees on a pro-rata basis regardless of their role - every member of the team at Skibo contributes to the overall guest experience and is rewarded as such.

The value of gratuities and the service charge varies, but for reference in 2019 full-time staff at the Club received on average around £2,000 in addition to their annual salary. Since then, the service charge rate has increased and so for 2022 this sum is estimated at around £4,000 in addition to their annual salary. Part time staff will receive the service charge as a percentage of the hours they work i.e 20 hours per week would equal 50% of the service charge.
