We’re Hiring Chefs!

The Real Junk Food Project Sheffield is a dynamic and fast growing non-profit organisation that is creating a more fair and sustainable food system in Sheffield. We need several chefs to strengthen our team.

We are looking for creative professionals who are passionate about food and about people. Our volunteers and our ingredients come from all backgrounds, and it will be your job to get the most out of both of them.

There are several roles available across our various operations ranging from running one of our community food hubs, to developing our more commercial catering operation. For the right candidate there is also the option to grow towards a position as food director for the project. We will be working with you over a trial and probation period to find the best fit for your talents and interests.

All candidates will start on the living wage, currently £8.45 per hour. We are very happy to discuss options for part-time working, and there will also be many opportunities to do additional work for the project if you want to expand your hours and salary beyond your base.

If you’re excited by the prospect of working for us, send your CV and cover letter to We will be in touch within a week to arrange for an informal interview. Suitable candidates will then be asked to work several paid trial shifts within the project before a potential offer.
