Job requirements and duties: Sous Chef:
You will have responsibility, but get all the support that you need from a sympathetic and panic free chef. You will have creativity, working along side an imaginative chef. We need for you to be adaptable and used to handling large numbers of guests.
We need awareness, co-ordination, attention to detail and to be able to work with others in the kitchen. We need for you to take responsibility when we have to spend the day organizing a wedding for a hundred people or more; so that we can relax in the knowledge that you are confident and will not panic under pressure.
You need to have the confidence to be able to order and stock the kitchen, be able to help those below you and create a thorough understanding of what the chef requires. I expect you to be able to cook without the chef being there to tell you what to do, but at the same time respecting how I like things to be done. Turn problems into solutions and be willing to learn new ways rather than fall back on what you are used to.
