Started to hear this rumour last week & didn’t really pay much attention, now it’s starting to gather pace.
I’ve been told that there is a big up and coming job in London (specifically Knightsbridge), there are overseas investors who have bought a rundown hotel & are going to refurbish it to an extremely high standard. So the criteria for the job of Exec Chef includes ‘must have held Michelin stars’ & ‘must have a media presence’. So then that’ll be a job for Mark Sargeant then, but hang on Mr Sargeant is currently ‘Creative Director’ for the Swan collection.
No worries, this position isn’t about getting your hands dirty as another candidate put, or answering phones. It’s more about connections, media, PR etc. The only real stumbling block for Sarge is the fact that his current employers aren’t overly keen on him taking on more work when there is clearly work to be done with the Swan Collection (if you’ve seen the Facebook page of the one in Kent, you’ll know what I’m talking about). So any other takers for this flexi-time position? I’ll let you know when I hear more.
