About the Role

In this role you will be responsible for the operation and organisation of the kitchen by setting daily production levels and guidelines as well as delegating to the team. You will demonstrate effective management by flexing between coaching and directive leadership, also building effective relationships with support functions such as Food Halls, Restaurants, Food Safety, Distribution, Store Services and HR.

About You

You’ll have exceptional communication and interpersonal skills as you will be interacting with other business areas in your day to day.

Having good PC literacy is a must (Word, Excel and preferably SAP).
