The Brink Vacancy: Chef

Salary: £8/hour
Hours: 32 hours/week (would consider job share of 16 hours/week)
Contract: Initial fixed term of six months

The Brink is an 80 covers café bar and entertainment venue attracting shoppers and workers from Liverpool city centre during the day and transforming in the evening into a vibrant music and entertainment venue. It was set up to support those in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and is a safe place where the recovery community can meet.  It does not sell alcohol and has a team of support workers providing services at the venue.

The Brink does not isolate those in recovery from addiction from the rest of society – positively the opposite. It provides a welcoming, creative and intelligent space where people from all backgrounds and walks of life can dine, hang out, socialise and relax.

As a Chef, you will prepare meals to order as well as catering for larger events or buffets. The menu is focused on healthy and fresh produce and we have excellent standards to maintain. You will work well under pressure and have experience working as part of a team.  There will be the opportunity to have an input to menu design and come up with ideas for specials.

You will have experience working in a similar restaurant or venue with knowledge of food costs, stock rotation and food safety certification.  You must be able to cope well under pressure as this can be a high volume operation working with fresh produce.  You will have attention to detail and expect high standards of service from yourself.  Ideally you will have a catering qualification at Level 3 or equivalent.

It’s not essential for you to have in-depth knowledge about the recovery community or addiction, but you should be in tune with the ethos and rationale of The Brink.  Your values align with The Brink’s – integrity, collaborative-working and accountability – and an empathy and understanding towards those with an addiction or in recovery from addiction.

If you are interested in applying then please submit a CV along with a covering letter/email explaining why you are interested in the role and The Brink should pick you. Email your CV and letter/email to human.resources@actiononaddiction.org.uk.

If you’d like to chat about the job, then feel free to pop along to The Brink and speak to one of the team.

Closing date: Friday 23 March 2018
