Head Chef

With a motivational and inspirational attitude YOU are the first step in helping your team be the best they can be. By listening to your staff, providing useful on the job training and maintaining a positive attitude at all times, YOUR management skills can change lives.

You’re someone who hits the ground running at every shift, who enjoys the fast pace of the kitchen and can consistently produce top quality dishes under pressure. You’re a born leader who relishes taking responsibility for the running of the kitchen, but also knows when and how to delegate. You have an unstoppable talent for creating new dishes and menus

You will live and breathe Craft & Job ensuring the kitchen delivers “Craft & Jam” quality to its customers consistently without fail and that the Craft & Jam vision and values are a part of everything you do. Taking ownership of the business success, you are responsible for whether it succeeds or fails.

Passion, commitment, an eagerness to learn and a real foodie flare are more important to us than years experience.

  • Professional leadership and management skills (ideally without the Gordon Ramsey type swearing)

Duties

Oversees many diverse aspects of our restaurant business. A Head Chef is often involved in staffing of the kitchen, developing menu offerings, forecasting supply needs and estimating costs. They are expected to make sure the kitchen meets all regulations, including sanitary and safety guidelines.

They take part in the creation of recipes and the preparation of advanced items, while assigning less complicated tasks to cooks and catering assistants. A primary duty is the continued efficiency of the kitchen and production of consistent, quality food. But duties also extend to office and operational issues, including accounting and scheduling. The Head Chef may also be called to weigh in on patron complaints.

Because they are held accountable for the success and failure of a catering establishment, Head Chefs need to work longer hours to ensure that the restaurant is functioning properly at all times.

Must have tight hold and understanding of the budget and financial control of the business, including keeping organised financial records.

Benefits

  • All of our salaried staff are on 45 hour contracts
  • 20% off across all 3 venues for you and up to 6 family and friends dining with you
