Job description

Role: Head chef (Japanese Restaurant)

Salary: £40-45K per year, Generous benefit and bonus structure

Location: Winchester, Hampshire

Employment Status: Full-time

Main Duty:
The chef must be able to develop Japanese Kaiseki style food and update menus on a frequent basis - monthly at the minimum.
The supporting team is a mix of professionally trained and in house trained staff who are capable but will need certain training - for example we don’t have a pastry chef but someone with an aptitude and passion who also operates the grill.
All the other prerequisites of a head chef position remain such as ensuring cleanliness and hygiene, record keeping, cost management, staff training, outside catering and promotional and marketing events and shows/media.

We do have some professional, very experienced and highly skilled individual chefs that seek mentoring and development to achieve their full potential.

We are nationally recognized as being one of the top 10 Japanese restaurants in the UK by the Sunday Times and regularly feature in the national press and media. This is an excellent opportunity for someone striving for excellence and perfection and to create a name for themselves. We already have 10 years trading and Michelin recognition but we want to strive for creativity and superlative taste experiences and get that.

Experience as a chef, especially in Japanese kaiseki cuisine, is a plus.

Visa Requirements:
You must have a valid visa to work in the UK.
Visa sponsorship can be considered.
