What you will actually do
If you think about the kitchen as a ship, we have created the most well-oiled, efficient and passionate machine known to man. It runs on a steady stream of fantastic ingredients that are turned into interesting dishes ready to be delivered to eager customers. You need to make sure every single crew member in the kitchen knows their role and what is expected of them, and train them when they don’t. The schedule will be flexible and include shifts in the mornings, evenings and weekends.
