Staff Vacancies

Head Chef

Love cooking but looking for a change?

We are a Convent, retreat centre, and conference facility in the town of Wantage looking for a Head Chef to cook traditional meals and lead a small but dedicated team.

We have a reputation for great food, some of it grown in our own beautiful gardens.

St Mary’s Convent has a relaxing atmosphere where staff are truly valued and appreciated. We offer a fantastic work life balance with less hours than most catering roles with a large, modern, and airy kitchen overlooking a beautiful garden.

Get in touch, meet us and the team.
