Timespan is looking for an enthusiastic cook to manage our River Cafe. River Cafe is in a beauty spot in the Scottish Highlands overlooking the Helmsdale river and herb garden, and it’s central to Timespan’s organisational aims – we want to use food as a means of supporting local producers and creating community. We believe that everyone deserves access to fresh, sustainable and ethically sourced food and our aim is to work with community partners and producers to develop a local food web for the village.
This is an exciting role for someone who is experienced, creative, has a genuine love of food and sustainable produce, can cook delicious seasonal menus, motivate our cafe team and is buzzing with new menu ideas. We're open to artists who'd like to take it on as a project; street food caterers who want a summer stint in a coastal Highland spot and those with more traditional catering experience.

Salary: £15,200 for a 4 day week (£19,000 fte)
Hours: 4 days per week (flexible)
Contract: The post is initially offered as a fixed-term contract until the end of October 2019. 
Location: Timespan, Helmsdale

Application deadline: Thursday 31st January
