We are looking for an enthusiastic, hardworking team player to join our busy kitchen team led by our new Head Chef, Eamon Fulalove.

No previous experience necessary. The successful candidates will be able to work well as part of a team and use their initiative to deliver a high level of customer service.  Your role will include routine cleaning duties including pot washing, general cleanliness and providing excellent customer service, while maintaining an awareness of food hygiene and health and safety.

You will have a keen interest in cooking and the hospitality industry. You will be comfortable working on routine tasks with minimal supervision, as well as working with the rest of the kitchen team to ensure high quality operation. You will also be able to demonstrate good organisation and communication skills.

Due to the amount of applications we receive, we are regrettably not able to respond to all applicants. If you have not heard back from us within 2 weeks, please assume your application has not been successful.  

The Dartington Hall Trust is a remarkable, many-sided organisation with a fascinating history and significant future potential. We have a progressive tradition of using our 1200 acre estate to stimulate and nurture new thinking and activities that can help to improve the world we live in.  Dartington continues to forge a path that seeks to explore both individual disciplines such as learning, arts, agriculture, enterprise and social justice, and the broader notion of how they can be brought together to help create more fulfilling lives and a better society.

To apply for this post please send your CV or completed application form to along with a Supporting Statement outlining the reason for your interest in the role and Dartington, and what you believe you could bring to the role. This is a key element of the decision making process so please take the time to put together the Supporting Statement as without it your application is likely to be at a disadvantage.
