A little bit about us
Holly & Co is the next chapter of Holly Tucker MBE. After founding Notonthehighstreet in 2006, she has decided to do it all over again! Holly & Co is an immersive brand with its aim is to help anyone, start a small business. She believes the future is about brands becoming more than just a website, and so she’s set out to break more glass ceilings and do something completely new.
Meet the team
Meet the canines
An exciting chance to shape Holly & Co’s food offering in its two premises. This Cook would not only make the vast majority of the ‘ready to eat’ food offering of this cafe, deli and evening menu (think small plates) but would also have an opportunity to teach cookery classes to adults and children.
In conjunction with the founders and owners, the Head Cook would be able to design a mouthwatering menu that spans across breakfast to supper. With the ability to create unique cakes, colourful and seasonal salads, designing supper clubs – to name just a few elements of this exciting role. The business supports small businesses and quality produce and so it is an ideal time to be creative and ethical.
This is a new concept so it would be ideal for anyone who is looking to make their mark on the world, but is also adaptable and has an entrepreneurial spirit. They would need to be able to take direction, work with the small but talented team and drive the business to hit Holly’s vision.
Happy to consider confident and capable cooks who have had previous kitchen experience. The ideal candidate will be someone who enjoys using fresh, seasonal produce and who likes to be creative when menu planning, a team player and leader. The role will also include occasionally serving and dealing with the customer, so it is important for the candidate to be adaptable with good communication skills.
