Our Service

NYES Catering is a trading branch of North Yorkshire County Council.

With over 250 schools across North Yorkshire, Doncaster and the North-East we provide customer focused, good quality catering services that strive to innovate and exceed customer expectations.

We are passionate about the meals we provide; which are produced fresh on site daily, following the School Food Standards and adhering to our Soil Association’s Food for Life Bronze accreditation. All of our staff are highly trained; which can include, NVQs in Catering, Nutrition and Healthy Eating, Health and Safety, Allergen Management, and Customer Care.

To be successful in this role you will need to have multi-site catering experience, have a proven track record in optimising performance, and taking an innovative approach to the ownership of multiple sites. Excellent communication skills are essential, as you will be required to build fantastic, customer focussed relationships with Headteachers, Business Managers, School Staff, and Trust Staff. You will be financially aware, able to manage budgets, striving for efficiencies whilst improving the offer.
