We are looking for an exceptional Kitchen Manager to join our New Site Opening Brewers Fayre in Cockermouth, Cumbria. What better opportunity to make your mark than by taking on a new team and playing a key part in their coaching, engagement and development from the very beginning. You will be highly organised and knowledgeable around food safety and process coupled with a passion for exceptional kitchen standards and for developing people. We are looking for a natural leader who can engage their team through their own passion and hard work and drive performance by leading from the front and working closely with the wider management team. An ideal opportunity for an ambitious individual who thinks they have what it takes to build and grow an amazing kitchen team in a new business.

Oh yes, this is one hot opportunity for a professional who's cool as the proverbial cucumber when the pressure's on!

Whilst every single member of our restaurant teams is vital to our ongoing success, you'll be ensuring that our food remains the hero of our story. Because you won't just be wowing our guests with your cooking prowess. You'll be managing, training and inspiring your team to deliver amazing food, on spec and on time, every time.

Not only that, you'll also play a vital role as a member of the wider restaurant management team. So that means adding a dash of initiative and new ideas. A good dollop of commercial savvy. And bringing it all to the boil to ensure that everyone's working together to Serve Up Great Memories.

Working with the largest hospitality group in the UK - and winner of the Publican award for the best 51+ site employer - means having the authority and autonomy to flex your expertise to the max. You'll be spotting potential amongst your team. Then making the most of it through 1-2-1 training and development. You'll be looking at improving stock management and reducing wastage. And, of course, you'll ensure that the highest standards of hygiene and H&S are headline news amongst your kitchen team at all times. And all in the fastest-paced, most guest-focused environment you could hope to bring your unique talents to.

So where are you coming from? Well, you're already in a Chef/Kitchen Management role, but you're champing at the bit to take your skills to the next level. You want to be a pro-active, hands-on role model. You want to have your say in the wider running of the restaurant. And you've got some incredible ideas up your sleeve that will truly deliver the wow factor!

So, is it time to get your teeth into a role that not only offers immediate satisfaction but also long term career development opportunities?

Salary up to £29,000 and what's more we have the best bonus scheme in town.
