Head Chef/Kitchen Team Leader

The Monocle Café is looking for a driven individual who is creative and proactive with a flair for producing delicious fresh food. Our menu is small and perfectly formed, with Japanese and Scandinavian influences providing a unique and interesting selection of light bites and tasty snacks to eat in or take away.

You will be managing a small brigade so you need to be a strong team player who can train and encourage junior staff. You must have a passion for cooking and preparing memorable dishes and be capable of helping to create new menu ideas for the café and our events. Ideally you’ll have at least two years’ experience in a similar environment and be able to provide employer references. Attention to detail and efficiency are compulsory, as is maintaining the kitchen and stores in a hygienic and tidy manner.

Knowledge of HACCP and hygiene regulations is a prerequisite; excellent spoken English and proof of eligibility to work in the UK are also required. We offer excellent opportunities for career development and personal advancement.

If this sounds like you, please send us your CV and a cover letter.
