Are you passionate about great tasting food? Are you someone who likes producing amazing brunch and lunch dishes and cracking cakes and scones? Enjoy playing with different ingredients and taking food adventures? Then we want you! No need for Chef School, just a passion for good food!

V&A Dundee are looking for an experienced and versatile chef to join the café kitchen team. Key responsibilities include making and serving our delicious seasonal lunch menus.

The emphasis is on creative, fresh, tasty food prepared daily, using local, seasonal produce where possible whilst always staying true to our made from scratch philosophy.

Open seven days a week, the café at V&A Dundee draws many visitors throughout the year. We are much loved by our regulars for our location and interesting range of homemade lunch and cake options.
