  • Ensure appropriate stock rotation, control and monitor stock levels
  • Follow and demonstrate established guidelines for food safety
  • Assist and guide new staff in aspects of kitchen presentation and operations, including maintenance, mise en place and service

  • A passion for food and hospitality
  • Ability to adapt to a regularly changing environment and maintain high standards when under pressure
  • An understanding of safe work practices with a commitment to maintaining a safe work environment
