Who we’re looking for:
Someone with kitchen experience who’s looking to kickstart a career in the food industry. A fast learner with a good knowledge of basic cookery skills. We’re a small team and are looking for someone highly organised who’s willing to jump in and take initiative to perform tasks. Good time management and an ability to work efficiently are key attributes we’ll be looking for. You’ll get to learn a lot about the ins and outs of running a food business whilst being allowed the freedom to make the role in your own.

We’re looking for someone who’s serious about the role and direction of their career in food. The hours are more sociable than a lot in hospitality but you will be required to start work early (6.30/7am) whenever necessary although this will never exceed 3 times a week and will generally be 1 or 2 times. We also tend to finish early a few times a week at around 2:30/3 and the weekend day is always a half day, finishing at around midday.

We are a growing business and would love someone passionate and creative to join the team to grow with us.
