Who you are?
We like our Chefs to show their unique and personal cooking style, the food you create is an expression of who you are. Your meals must taste and look great, with an emphasis on the latest trends, freshness, quality and responsible cost control. Candidates we are looking for must be experienced with a range of techniques and approaches, be kitchen resourceful and possess the ability to work independently, while at the same time holding your own in a very busy kitchen with other very experienced Chefs. There are a set of skills that any of our Chefs should have:
- Attention to detail (cooking is a sense, so a Chef should be precise)
- Business sense (A good Chef is also a business person, who can hire, train and manage their team for daily production of meals)
- Cleanliness (Chefs need to know hoy to keep kitchen sanitary)
- Culinary Expertise (The most important hard skill chefs need is an ability to cook, as well as knowledge of the kitchen)
- Fast-paced decision making (A chef should be able to make decisions quickly and efficiently)
- Motivational (A good chef will motivate those working in the kitchen)
- Multitasking (In the kitchen, a chef is always working on multiple tasks at once)
- Organization (this may sound obvious, well because it is, right?)
- Team Player (A chef is part of a team and must be able to work well with others).
Last, but not least, anyone working in CookUnity should be adaptable to the fast-moving nature of the internet and the growing, ever-changing needs of a company like ours.
