We are a completely family owned, independent group of garden centres operating throughout Scotland, Northern England and Wales.
A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Kitchen Assistant to join the team at our Howdens.
Our Kitchen Assistants support the kitchen in all areas of food production/preparation, cleaning and ensuring high levels of service all within Company guidelines and statutory requirements e.g. health & safety; food hygiene etc. Our restaurants work from scratch, producing a full range of menu items from breakfast, lunch and evening meals. This is a great opportunity for someone who is keen to gain skills and experience in a full-service operation.
To be a successful Kitchen Assistant you will be passionate about food and enjoy working with fresh ingredients. You will be able to work well as part of a small team and under the guidance of our head chef but also have the ability to work on your own initiative when required. You will be responsible for preparing hot and cold food throughout the day, including daily specials for our customers. Along with general kitchen duties such as housekeeping, ordering stock, controlling stock levels and wastage, you should be well organised and have excellent food hygiene and presentation standards.
Hours are 30 per week over 5 days which will include some weekends so flexibility is a must.
Our Assistant rates of pay are dependent on age, and range from £5.26 per hour for 16-17 year olds, £6.61 per hour for 18-20 year olds, £8.41 per hour for 21-22 and £8.94 per hour for those 23 and over.
