Energetic Kitchen Assistant Required

Posted: 19-01-2022
Place: Kennington, London

Livewire Kitchen needs more bright Sparks!
We’re seeking an enthusiastic and energetic Kitchen Assistant to work alongside our Head Chef at our busy café situated within a workspace in Vauxhall, London. (25 – 35 hrs p/wk /£7.50/hr starting rate).
New to market, Livewire Kitchen is just into its second year of trading, and run by its two very hands-on founders, Zoe and Nina, along with Head Chef Davide Gostoli.
With exciting growth plans ahead, we’re looking for someone to join us who has a genuine passion for the business, who comes with some kitchen skills and capabilities, but also a hunger to learn and move up the ranks as the company grows.
You will be working in a busy, fast-paced environment, producing seasonal, nutritious foods, all designed to help power the working professional through their day. The menu ranges from robust sandwiches and seasonal superfood salads, to homemade soups and hot meals. Creativity and flair are important as we develop our exciting menus, evolving with current and predicted food trends. A passion for a deeper interest in food, ingredients, their benefits and provenance, is desirable.
The Kitchen Assistant will work under the direction and supervision of the Head Chef to help prepare ingredients and meals in a timely fashion following prescribed recipes and instruction, ensuring at all times that the kitchen and food storage areas are kept immaculately clean, tidy, safe and hygienic. Other responsibilities include checking and storage of incoming deliveries, maintaining all cooking and service items in an orderly and sanitary condition, keeping cleaning and temperature log books, accurate date-labelling of products; all following trained Livewire standards and government regulations.
Health and Safety and Food Hygiene training will be given, but candidates holding existing certification would be desirable.
Our highly experienced, Locatelli trained Head Chef, will be keen to show you the ropes and help in your development in a commercial kitchen.
Don’t apply if you are work-shy or don’t thrive under pressure, as the days are non-stop from the word ‘Go’, and we can guarantee you’ll be kept on your toes! Our standards are high, so you need to be someone who believes in only delivering the best at all times, and who gets satisfaction out of this.
The role is a physical one, so we are looking for strong, capable candidates who are not afraid of hard work and embrace the cleaning element of the role as much as the prepping and cooking! A reality of a great kitchen is a tidy, clean kitchen.
With a generous hourly rate, Mon-Fri daytime hours, paid breaks, 28 day’s holiday (pro-rata), training and development, bi-monthly team meetings, and soft benefits* too we believe in rewarding those who are brilliant enough to join Livewire Kitchen!
*soft benefits – free staff meal on every shift, 25% staff discount on all food and drink purchases at the café, quarterly team drinks, annual summer company day out.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to be part of the Livewire Kitchen team, email us your CV along with a cover letter detailing why you are interested in working for us, and why you feel you are right for us.
