Vacancy - Trainee Chef
Your opportunity to become the next great chef!
We are a popular independent restaurant located close to Haywards Heath serving great British cuisine with the occasional Asian twist. Our menu is prepared from scratch using the finest locally sourced seasonal produce. All of our ingredients are fresh; freezers are strictly for deserts only! Our approach may take more time and effort but we believe the end result makes it all worthwhile.
We are now seeking our next Trainee Chef to join the kitchen team. The successful candidate will undergo a full training programme, being trained to the highest standards whilst working in our kitchen under the personal guidance of our head chef / owner. An apprenticeship will be offered to the right candidate.
Previous experience in a commercial kitchen is not essential although you should be able to demonstrate basic cooking skills and, most importantly, you must possess a passion for great food with the ambition and determination to become a talented chef.
Applicants must be professionally minded, organised and self motivated with the ability to keep a calm head under pressure. You must also be a great team worker and be willing to work hard to achieve your goals.
This is a full time position; you will be required to work flexible shifts including a mixture of day-times, evenings and weekends. You must be local, or live within a sensible commuting distance of Lindfield.
As we are only looking for the best local talent, this trainee position comes with a generous pay package plus an equal share of tips, free staff meals and other benefits. However, we will expect your full commitment in return.
If you feel you have what we are looking for then please email us your CV and letter of introduction.
