About the Role

As an Assistant Kitchen Manager, your role is to act as a vital part of the team by ensuring the smooth running of a section and providing support to the Kitchen Manager and other team members.

You’ll have exceptional interpersonal skills and good attention to detail, which will be evident through paperwork completed, organisation of department and sufficient stock levels. Having good PC literacy is a must.
