About us

With two award winning restaurants in Brighton and Hove, now is the time to move to the seaside and join our incredible team!

We are looking for an awesome sous chef to help lead our team and develop with us as we grow.

Since opening in 2016, we’ve won a Michelin Bib Gourmand, been voted Brighton’s 3rd best restaurant, won Brighton's Best Welcome (twice), been included in the Waitrose Good Food Guide and Harden's Guide, featured in national press by The Telegraph, Restaurant Magazine, BBC Good Food, Olive Magazine, National Geographic Food and The Guardian; had our recipes printed in a cookbook, served over 45,000 customers with lots of positive feedback and just had a great time giving Brighton and Hove the Italian food it deserves!

Role description

Job benefits:

✔ Excellent salary package + tips + training

✔ Learn from our Head Chef Jamie Halsall and work across both our Brighton and Hove sites

✔ A tight and regularly changing menu with seasonal small plates, fresh handmade pastas and desserts so lots of variation to keep you interested as well as making bread, cured meats and cheeses in house to keep you challenged

✔ A small team committed to supporting you, your development and progression

Responsibilities

 

Role requirements:

If you join, we need you to be able to do the following:

  • be extremely clean and well organised, particularly in our open kitchens
  • assist with menu writing and be keen to bring new ideas to the table for specials
  • be motivated, friendly and approachable even under pressure
  • be responsible for stock management, help with food ordering and kitchen hygiene targets
  • want to grow with our business and be a long term member of our team.

Ideal candidate

You need a minimum of 5 years cooking experience at a high level in a busy kitchen and be willing to learn new skills. You also need excellent English and communication skills as you will be customer facing in our open plan kitchens.

Experience with Italian food and cooking would be beneficial but it is not essential. Most importantly we are looking for someone with a real passion for food, service and hospitality, and a love of cooking simply and seasonally.

Perks, incentives or benefits offered

Funding for any approved training, staff days out for summer and Xmas, study trips to London to see other restaurants and how they work
