  • Strong leadership skills and the ability to mentor staff at a lower level
  • Food safety supervisor
  • Ability and willingness to create a solid, happy team working environment
  • Previous experience with inventory control systems / COGS and wages

This is arguably one of the best roles going for a Head Chef based in Sydney at present. All staff are treated like family, the previous Head Chef was in the role for over 10 years.
