Site Manager - Favona Cafe, Auckland

Join the team at Cater Plus, a locally owned industry leader with three passions - food, exceptional service and our people.

We have an opening for a Chef Manager at our busy café located at Countdown Distribution Centre in the heart of Mangere. Countdown, a household name provides food for kiwi’s all-over New Zealand and we are proud to cater to those keeping the chain of food running.

In this role you will be a hands-on chef actively involved in the creating, cooking, and presentation of food, as well as the day-to-day running of the cafe. Think tasty, simple meals that our customers can order and eat in a short time frame before their next shift starts. An understanding of what the customers crave will have you well on the road to success here. Know a cottage pie recipe that is to die for?

Open till late you must have great organizational and communication skills to manage and oversee the cafe even after your shift has finished. Lead your team of 5 to get the job done well, challenge them to improve, as well as work together, value and support each other.
