Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Kenton School’s Academy Trust, Studio West cater for around 400 students aged between 11 and 19 with student numbers increasing year on year. We are expected to reach 650 at full capacity. Rated “Good” by Ofsted, Studio West offers students an innovative and bespoke curriculum with an emphasis on employability and life skills. We have close working relationships with our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West, does so with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment.

Due to our expansion, we are delighted to be introducing a new Kitchen Assistant post to our team. The roles will involve supporting the Catering Manager in the preparation, cooking and serving on high quality, nutritious food.

The role will also involve ensuring that the kitchen area is kept clean, adhering to strict food hygiene, health and safety and Covid-19 related procedures.

If you are the person we are looking for, you will have previous experience in a catering/cooking background, combined with excellent customer service skills. A current Food Hygiene Certificate would be desirable but we can ensure appropriate training for those without this.
