We’re looking for a full time kitchen manager for our busy vegan cafe in Southampton. (www.cafethrive.co.uk)
The job will involve looking after the kitchen side of the business and working closely with the general manager to ensure we carry on providing accessible and delicious food and drinks to our customers!
We’re looking for someone that has worked in a kitchen / catering environment whose experience includes supervising other staff and holding position of responsibility. It will be your job to ensure consistency in quality, portion size, freshness and flavour in everything we create, not to mention, ensuring we have a fully stocked kitchen, cleaning tasks are carried out regularly and effectively and that staff working alongside you in the kitchen are happy and competent in tasks given to them.
We have a set menu which you will learn and be happy to be involved in the preparation and cooking to order of alongside other kitchen staff, however, there’s also some room for creativity if you enjoy cooking things like soup and cakes or have ideas for our weekly specials! We’d love for someone to join us who is passionate about vegan food and excited to see our brand grow.
This is a permanent full time position which would ideally cover five days which must include at least one weekend day and some evenings, though this can be discussed to fit around other existing commitments if necessary. We would also be looking to give you general front of house training in order to give you a greater understanding of how our cafe operates and so that you are able to step up and get stuck in wherever necessary if the occasion calls!
It’s beneficial if you have knowledge of allergens and using vegan ingredients and advantageous if you have a recent food hygiene certificate.
In short, we are looking for someone experienced; reliable; responsible; happy to work closely with a team but be confident to take charge and lead; down to earth and easy going but serious about delivering high standards and maintaining our excellent reputation. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! Immediate start available.
