Chef Manager (Permanent Reliever), Auckland

We have a rare opportunity for a passionate, adaptable, and flexible, hands-on Chef Manager to help us deliver the best food experience in the industry.

About the Role:
Working across our various in-house kitchens and café’s in Auckland to cover chef/site managers when on leave and training days, this position promises variety and challenge!

To be successful, you will need to thrive in a fast paced and dynamic environment whilst juggling multiple tasks at the same time. The challenge of this role is that no two days are the same – one day you are running a sole charge workplace cafeteria, the next day you are managing a team of 5 staff members in an aged care kitchen (and everything in between). This means you love being a hands-on chef and leader, actively involved in the preparation, cooking and service of food, who enjoys pleasing our customers on a day-to-day basis.

We have 29 kitchens and cafes throughout Auckland which range in cooking styles, service times and quantities.

To be successful in this position you will need a minimum of 5 years’ experience managing a kitchen or café, and be able to:
- Prepare, cook, and serve a variety of cuisine
- Monitor quality of food at all stages of preparation and presentation
- Create and adapt menus to cater for varied dietary requirements
- Manage food and labour costs within budget
- Discuss food preparation issues with managers and kitchen staff
- Implement New Zealand Food Control and Safety regulations
- Maintain a clean, tidy, safe and hazard free environment
- Demonstrate great communication skills and moderate computer literacy
- Show a flexible, can-do, committed attitude
- Travel to various sites across Auckland (car and drivers’ license required)
