The Role

Are you a chef that enjoys the fast pace of service? Are you passionate about food and take pride in all that you do? Does the thought of training and developing within a small team float your boat? If so, we need you to be part of our kitchen team at Bistrotheque in Bethnal Green. The idea of achieving high quality and consistency in high volumes should definitely not phase you.

As a Sous Chef we expect you to share our pride in trying to get things right every time and we expect you to demonstrate not only cooking skills and product knowledge which inspire the junior team but a level of consistency which ensures that every dish we send is a good as it should be.
