Chef de partie
Farang London are expanding! We’re looking to hire experienced chefs of all levels to join the family in Highbury, N5. Experience in Asian cooking is definitely an advantage but not essential as we provide comprehensive in house training; however a willingness to learn and work as part of a team are crucial requirements.
There are opportunities to advance in our young but thriving company. We shall be opening at least 2 more kitchens around London by July 2018 and we have many more plans for the future.
Candidates should have:
At least an up to date level 2 kitchen hygiene certificate with a good knowledge of kitchen health and safety regulations, HACCP, due diligence etc. and to share our desire to have high level of kitchen cleanliness at all times
Good personal hygiene, professional pride and a sense of humour
A good knowledge of British seasonal produce and preparation techniques (plus knowledge of Thai ingredients and methods would be a bonus)
Intermediate to advanced knife skills with an ability and desire to clean and maintain kitchen equipment/machinery to a high spec
A sense of initiative, ability to work independently whilst also being able to both give and take instruction and constructive criticism
A willingness to learn, evolve and build as an individual along side the business as it too grows and develops.
We are an experienced, diverse and fun kitchen team who have worked together over a number of years to build a modern, fair and stimulating working environment; where hard work is rewarded. Whilst we have sections for service, the whole team is responsible for preparing and delivering the whole menu, where no person is left behind.
For the right candidates who are willing to push themselves, future opportunities are available to manage and work across multiple sites, festivals and private events.
An immediate position is available for the right candidate and we are offering a competitive salary based on experience with great tips (which are shared evenly amongst all the staff)
We don’t need to hire new staff often but when we do, we do it for the long term. To put it simply we feel this a rare chance to become involved in something special and build a successful career. So if you’d like the opportunity to work with some of the freshest Thai produce available in the UK flown directly from Thailand every week, and learn from a group of reasonable, professional and friendly chefs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a comprehensive covering letter and up to date CV and we will be in touch soon.
