SOUS CHEF – independent restaurant - £28,000 + tips – live in available -
A great opportunity for a talented Sous Chef to join this independent, family run restaurant. They specialise in regional Italian cuisine, with an emphasis on Southern Italian flavours.
There is a brigade of 4 chefs and they make everything in house except the bread and pasta, which are sourced from artisan suppliers in Italy. The focus here is on the quality of the produce and the menus change regularly to reflect the seasons. As Sous Chef you will be responsible for assisting the Head Chef with designing menus, costing, stock control, ordering and training, motivating and mentoring the junior staff.
Alongside the restaurant they also have a small café and deli offering a limited lunch menu, cakes and ice cream. The restaurant has been established for five years and they are now making plans for another site, so career prospects are excellent.
The ideal Sous Chef will have had previous experience at a senior level, within a fresh food kitchen and really enjoy cooking. A good knowledge of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine would be an advantage, but is not essential.
Benefits include a generous salary, plus tips, the opportunity to be part of a friendly, family team who look after their staff, excellent career prospects at the business expands and single accommodation should it be required.
