About the Role

As the Commis Chef in our production kitchen, you'll be part of the team who create all the wonderful fresh salads & sandwiches that our unique food hall sells daily.

You’ll have exceptional interpersonal skills and a good attention to detail, which will be evident through paperwork completed, organisation of department and sufficient stock levels.
