Sous Chef - High-End Luxury Property - Live-in Available
** In order to be considered for this role, not only must you have strong quality fresh food and high-volume experience but also a great deal of passion, creativity and a friendly nature **
Our client, a busy premium casual dining restaurant, is looking for a highly-skilled, hands-on, passionate Sous Chef with strong fresh food and high-volume experience to assist in the running of their popular operation based in the Southampton area. With an extensive menu showcasing their collection of mouthwatering dishes created from fresh locally sourced produce along with additional daily specials, not to mention a delicious selection of alcoholic drinks, this popular operation boasts a strong base of regular clientele with some coming from afar and wide for repeat experiences.
It would be an advantage if you were quite tech-savvy to an extent and able to use the latest software packages for the likes of ordering, GP control and team rostering. However, you will be able to delegate these types of tasks to key team members looking for more responsibility which will free you up to develop your team.
The successful Sous Chef will have a talent for driving brigades of chefs increasing quality and consistency, sales and revenue. You will need an organised and consultative approach, have a good business and financial acumen all whilst ensuring that customer satisfaction and quality standards are of paramount priority.
The culture is really key to the success of the operation. With this in mind you should be an incredible motivator, trainer, coach and manager of people. You should hold your brigade's progression as paramount to their continued growth as a team and as individuals, which can only help the business to thrive.
This can only be achieved through consistently delivering the exceptional experience for all customers with the highest standard of service, quality and safety.
* Solid hands-on Sous Chef experience in a quality, high-volume fresh food restaurant environment
