A true food lover and former manager of some of the Ribble Valley and Lancashire’s finest restaurants has been selected to head up specialist recruitment firm Chef Jobs UK.

Amy Hutcheson, who has worked for Ribble Valley Inns, the Inn at Whitewell and the Seafood Pub Company, has brought her experience and expertise to Accrington-based recruitment company Cummins Mellor.

After training at the Gleneagles five-star Country Hotel and Spa Resort, Amy (28) became a supervisor there, before coming home to Lancashire to join the Inn at Whitewell as its restaurant manager.

Amy then joined Ribble Valley Inns, parent company to the prestigious Michelin-starred Northcote Manor. After working across the company’s whole portfolio of inns, Amy was promoted to general manager before moving to join the Seafood Pub Company.

She said: “I love everything about the hospitality industry; meeting new people, customers enjoying their dining experience, not to mention the buzz at the end of every service.

“I know the value of top quality staff and look forward to helping find and place them for restaurants and hotels locally and nationwide through Chef Jobs UK.”
