The Slug and Lettuce, George Street, Edinburgh is recruiting. We are looking to add a part time chef and part time kitchen porter to our team.

Experience within a kitchen environment is preferred, but not essential.

Chef role will include working on the starters section, making garnishes and assisting the other chefs.

Kitchen Porter role will include cleaning, washing dishes, preparing desserts and assisting chefs with preparation.

It is strengths like these that we look for in our people. You are a natural team player who is most at home when working efficiently with others, allowing you to make the best use of your time.

You possess the ability to follow processes, stick to health and safety guidelines, properly plan things and be organised and structured in what you do. You are constantly thinking about the day in an ordered way that means everything runs smoothly - and all our customers get just what they want when they want it.

You need to be able to demonstrate that you are a great team player as well as being able to work unsupervised during busy times and keen to learn.

Joining our team as a Kitchen Team Member with Stonegate will give you the opportunity to develop important skills such as

  • Communication skills by listening to customers, engaging and building a rapport with them and by dealing with challenging people and situations
  • Experience of working under pressure including managing a workload at busy times
  • Developing an understanding of customer needs and using this knowledge to improve the business for example, passing on or responding to customers requests and suggestions
  • Building a commercial awareness and the experience of working in a commercial environment
  • Working with regulations such as health and safety and licensing laws, and making sure that colleagues understand them

In return we can offer you an award winning development programme and access to apprenticeships with 25% discount on food and drink for you and your entire party in all our pubs and venues. We have an employee benefits scheme which gives you discounts across hundreds of brands and services and a contributory pension scheme.
