You love food and have a huge knowledge of ingredients and flavours. You are hungry to share the knowledge and develop the budding chefs around you.

You have a sound awareness of the brand and the direction the business is headed. You know which ideas best suit our customer base.

Duties will include:

  • Preparing, cooking and presenting dishes in your section 
  • Managing and training any commis chefs working with you
