Experienced Chef required for Liverpool city centre cafe/restaurant, ideally with patisserie skills too
We are seeking an experienced Head Chef for our client, a start up business based in Liverpool city centre. The client started up an outlet in a bust part of town just prior to lockdown, and is now preparing to re-open. The premises consists of a cafe which can also serve as a restaurant, a retail shop, artists workspace, and event space.
The vision is to bring in a passionate, creative and enthusiastic Chef that would like to be part of building something amazing with the owner, who is a very collaborative leader.
We need someone who is skilled in multi cuisine, and is also ideally able to create beautiful patisserie items.
