Bistrot Pierre prepares, cooks and serves provincial French dishes using fresh and seasonal ingredients and regularly changing menus.
We are looking to recruit for them an enthusiastic, helpful and committed Sous Chef - who wants to learn, is ambitious and has a sense of hard work and fun.
They are fast becoming a leading branded restaurant chain, currently they have a portfolio of 17 restaurants nationally, with ambitious plans for expansion, creating plenty of opportunity for career progression for those who seek to continue to grow their skills and position within the company.
Ideally you will have some branded restaurant experience, but this is desirable rather than essential. If not, you definitely must have experience of working in a good hotel or restaurant environment. An NVQ Level 2 qualification is also desired but not essential. Full training is given and experience is important but what is more important to us is enthusiasm and a desire to learn and improve. Most importantly, you will enjoy working with and maintaining a high level of energy, as this will be a very fast paced kitchen environment.
The Kidderminster team will typically cater for covers of approximately 70 over a relatively quiet lunchtime service up to approximately 200 covers during a busy evening or weekend service. They will also be open for Breakfast. You will be taking on the responsibility of a busy kitchen but the requirements are simple, you will need to love cooking, but also be happy working from predominantly predefined menus.
Bistrot Pierre provide structured training and great career prospects. They also offer a very attractive benefits package including competitive pay at all levels, a share in tips, a chef referral scheme (£750 finder’s fee for a successful referral and appointment of senior chefs), discount in all our restaurants, discount with EE and with MacDonald Hotels, contributory pension scheme, generous holiday entitlement and a work-life balance.
If you are experienced and serious about a career in catering we would love to hear from you.
