About the Role

You would help a chef to prepare meals so customers in a cafe or restaurant can enjoy their food. You’d keep the kitchen clean and safe.

You’d need to make sure that the chefs have everything they need. Kitchens are busy so you’d need to work quickly and competently, sometimes doing several things at once.

You would:

  • Prepare basic food

  • Wash, peel or skin, and chop vegetables and fruit, meat and fish ready for cooking

  • Unload deliveries from suppliers

  • Organise the storeroom

  • Wash kitchen appliances, pots, pans, work surfaces, floors and walls

You’d use a variety of kitchen equipment such as automatic mixers, chipping machines and special knives and cutters. You’d be responsible for keeping the kitchen clean. So you’d need to follow strict health and safety, and hygiene rules.
