Hi. I am looking for a job locally and am interested in catering. Has anybody out there got an ideas? I have heard that a company called(I think) Chartwells? may be looking for people but I am not really sure what they do regarding catering. I have a feeling they deal with schools. Any help would be much apprecciated. Thanks. Also what they are like to work for.

Maybe if you do a search on Chartwells on this forum you will find out as I am sure that someone used the forum last year to promote this business

Chartwells are a national company who provide food for schools and similar organisations. It's mass catering stuff so if you work for them you tend to end up making 3,000 of the same dish everyday, it's not exactly inspiring by all accounts.
Your best bet this time of year is probably Glyndebourne. The season hasn't started properly yet but they're already catering for outside functions and although the main cheffy jobs will already have been filled, they often have junior chef and KP jobs going and by all accounts it's a good place to gain experience and once you've done a season there it's easy to get re-hired the following year.
Give them a ring on 01273 812510. That's the general office number but someone there should be able to put you in contact with the relevant person.

I would hazard a guess that:
a) very few people even notice
b) half of the very few that do think it's the work of a few... more
