Yes. Select the part time hours that suit your availability and you should always be able to find opportunities to match your preferences. Bear in mind that many kitchens work split shifts and those in restaurants may have greater availability at weekends. The more you can tailor your availability to the opportunities you are searching, the greater the likelihood you will find the shifts you want.
You are likely to find kitchen assistants working in virtually any commercial kitchen including hotels, restaurants, private clubs, hospitals, care homes, office restaurants and canteens. In each of them the basics of the role will be similar, but you may find a shift in emphasis from employer to employer. In some kitchens, for example, you may spend more time on food preparation than in others, while elsewhere the role may be more about sorting deliveries, keeping the storeroom orderly and organising linen and laundry. Check the details provided by employers and refine your search to ensure opportunities match your skills and preferences.
Often, one of the great frustrations of being a part time, temporary kitchen assistant is uncertainty over pay. You’re often not quite sure when you will be paid, by whom, or how. Staff Heroes removes that uncertainty. You’ll be paid electronically, straight into the account you store in the app – and you’ll usually be paid shortly after your shift has ended.
