Scott

I started working in catering aged 15 at Britoil in Aberdeen, they had a huge staff canteen. From there I progressed into mainly Hotel kitchens in the city and i’ve now been in the industry for 31 years!

My favourite thing about being a Chef is the creativity and knowing that every service is never the same. I used to cook for the political party conferences but the best celebrities I’ve cooked for are Oliver Reed and Jerry Lewis, they were so funny and down to earth, unlike some other celebrities I could mention.

Chef Stories Scott

Being a CJUK Chef, it’s great to know you are helping clients out of a situation. The office team make regular contact with me, they do their utmost to place me in an environment that is suited to me and unlike many full time jobs, my career doesn’t stagnate and always progresses. There have been many very good jobs I have had but I can honestly say working with CJUK (I say with instead of for as it’s such a team) is the best job I have ever had, it gives you everything you need in a job but with added benefits.

Something I will never forget is when the GM of a Hotel I was working in sent a KP into the Hotel swimming pool with trunks and a strainer to fish out a child’s floater…

A few words from the team:

“Scott can go under the radar a little bit, he just gets his head down and stuck in with his work. A positive, polite Chef who is always looking for opportunities to refer a Chef or site to work with us.”
