About the employer

EyUpDuck is a popular restaurant in the village of Alsager, 8 miles north of Stoke-on Trent. There is good access with both road and rail links to the area, from North Staffordshire and Cheshire.

During lockdown the business has operated a wide takeaway menu, and has seen a huge increase in business, with strong reviews and followers on social media. Takeaway menus include breakfasts, starters, mains, burgers, Sunday lunches, desserts, hot and cold drinks and alcoholic beverages, with inspiration drawn from American, Mexican, Italian, Greek and good old British cuisine.

The business is now planning for re-opening after lockdown, and really looking forward to welcoming customers to dine in the restaurant once again.  As part of this, they would like to recruit and train someone with a real passion for fresh food, someone who wants to learn the range of commis chef skills. The successful applicant will need to show an enthusiastic approach to learning, and developing themselves within the business, a commitment to team work, whilst putting the customer at the heart of their work.

This is a fabulous opportunity for someone who loves food, and has a passion to develop a career within an exciting and growing business.
