Breakfast Chef urgently required
Preparing and cooking breakfast
Ordering stock for the kitchen
What sort of hours will I work?
You'll need to be an early bird as most kitchens will expect you at your stove and flipping eggs by 7am. That said, even if you're helping with prep for the main kitchen, you should be wrapped up by 3pm. You'll probably work a five-day rota, which means working every weekends.
What's the best bit about being a breakfast chef?
What skills do I need?
A passion for food
An ability to work independently
An understanding of health and safety and food safety regulations
What qualifications do I need?
Check out the many courses on offer at catering colleges around the country. Some hospitality-related qualifications that might help include:
The 14-19 Hospitality & Catering Diploma
NVQs or SVQs
BTEC National Diploma
Any health and safety and food hygiene courses
Alternatively, you could work your way into the role by applying for an apprenticeship, or by becoming a kitchen porter with a company that offers good training programmes.
Who would it suit?
Let's face it, to be successful as a breakfast chef, you need to be happy to get up early and reliably prompt when turning up for work. It goes without saying that you should enjoy cooking and preparing food.
