• 2 established and modern Asian restaurants serving traditional cuisine
  • 2-year-old kitchen with amazing fit out
  • Forward thinking “big business” owners that look after their staff

The Business

They are two modern and very well-equipped restaurants. Both are very busy – one is more casual, and the other is more upmarket. You to need to be very organised for this role and a calm and in control operator that can lead this team. The team is made up of chefs who come from many corners of the world. However, one of the main languages spoken is Mandarin, so one of the projects for the head chef is to move the kitchen towards having English as the predominantly spoken language.

Training and Delegation

For the team and work, well there are very few issues in the kitchen. The team knows what to do and generally, gets on with it and does it. That said keeping the level of contentment and productivity takes a special type of leader. We need a kitchen manager / head chef that will be in there in the kitchen checking, rechecking and showing the younger chefs how it should be done.

Cooking Skills

You will primarily be responsible for the smooth running of both the kitchens, working on consistency, organisational ability, specials, menus etc. but of course, you will be doing some shifts on the woks (there are 10 wok stations!)  as well as doing the pass etc. one or two shifts a week. The menu is very established so this is not so much about creativity but more about refinement and consistency and some specials.

People Skills and Leadership

We are looking for someone who is a calm, intelligent leader who leads from the front and can effectively communicate with all types of people.

The Rewards

The salary on offer is up to $100K+S depending on experience. You are generally looking at a 42-45 hour week (really it’s true!) Parking is available and uniforms are supplied and laundered. You also get 5 weeks holidays!
