The School is looking for a catering contractor who will be their partner at the existing site and in assisting the transition and development of a proposed new build in 24 months.

We are seeking a suitably experienced contractor who has current experience of working within the secondary school or college market place, ideally with a strong operational base within the North of England, thus allowing for responsive, contract support and management of catering staff.

The successful tenderer will be required to formally report each month on catering standard performance and operational matters, ensuring the senior management team at the School is fully informed about all issues related to delivery of the catering service.
