What makes a sous chef a Hero?
You know what it takes to be a sous chef. With at least six months’ experience in the role, you know the demands of the job, the energy it requires and the skills you’ll need to employ. But the restaurants and hotels that employ our Staff Heroes are looking for something more. So here’s how to make a strong impression.
Instant leader: It’s a tough role even when you know the head chef, chef de partie and the rest of the brigade. But asking a sous chef to join an unfamiliar kitchen, hit the ground running and be the leader our clients need? That’s an even bigger challenge, but it’s one you will relish. Although the specific sous chef role may change from kitchen to kitchen, you can assume there will be a significant kitchen management requirement with all our sous chef opportunities, so you’ll need lots of confidence and authority, and know how to get the best from your team.
Share your knowledge: Even in a temporary role, a strong sous chef should be able and willing to help develop the more junior members of the team. You won’t have to wait to be asked to offer advice, encouragement and inspiration.
Only passionate sous chefs required: Being a temporary sous chef is a challenge, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to work across a broad range of kitchens, cuisines and brigades. Being a success in each of them takes commitment and reliability, but when you make a great impression, you increase your chances of being invited for more shifts.
