Commis - Chef de Partie

Situated within the Award winning Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools & Spa complex the Tea Kiosk Cafe and Grill is a vibrant cafe offering a range of food styles all within a modern and new kitchen environment.

We have a wonderful opportunity for an up and coming chef to learn and extend their trade in a diverse and busy cafe environment.

Dining options are varied and include cabinet style cafe food through to main meal preparation as well as function and special event menus.

All breads, pizza bases, pies and many sweet treats are prepared on site so bakery skills will also be taught.

We are a small team within the kitchen and everyone is required to pitch in and help out. If you are unwilling to do dishes and cleaning then this is not the right role for you.

Ours is an open plan kitchen so you will need to possess a high standard of personal presentation and cleanliness and have impeccable standards of customer service as you will be dealing with customers.

If you have a friendly outgoing personality and are eager to learn and develop your skills then we offer a great supportive environment for you to thrive in.
