Sous Chef - New Opening (Weekly Pay)

Forest Tavern

Forest Gate - London£13 per hour plus tipsFull time / Part time

Formerly the Railway Tavern, due to the proximity to Forest Gate station, the people of Forest Gate now know us as the Forest Tavern. On tap you will see cask ales alongside some great locally brewed craft beer, and when we say local, the barrels are literally rolled down the street!

Food is at the heart of the spacious dining room, from classic fish and chips to small plates with a twist, and of course the best Sunday roast in east London.

What you offer us?

We want our Sous Chefs to be our Head Chefs of the future. Our Sous Chefs should be the creative force behind our menus and specials. We want creative, passionate people to deliver consistent, fresh, seasonal food. We expect good health & safety standards, and a well-trained team.

We are not interested in foams, gels & smears! We need proper chefs that cook great ingredients perfectly every time, we want our main menu to change with the seasons, and specials that show imagination, flair, and personality.

As a Sous Chef we expect you to step into the Head Chef’s clogs when they are off. Therefore, you will have a good understanding of how dishes are costed and have input to menu development, and daily specials.

You will be part of the management team and will have a seat around the table at weekly management meetings, as well as regular training & inspirational days with our Group Executive Chef & Area Chefs.
