We Are saying NO to jobs that are draining every bit of happiness out of you and YES to emphatic work culture, wellbeing and well earned appreciation of the professional you are! Do you want to be there developing the whole industry so that tomorrow is always even more wonderful than today?
Our goal is to make our friends’ lives more enjoyable by making better choices as an employer every single day. We cannot do this without staff dedicated to this change. That is why we are looking for some “gem experts” with whom we can grind the hospitality industry into a sparkling diamond. The team leaders are definitely in a key position to make this happen.
We're searching for a passionate and professional head chef to run our Fredrikinkatu restaurant together with it's restaurant manager Iisa. We want you to lead a solid team in your restaurant taking care of the staff and operations. You already have some experience as a team leader, you understand the cost structure of a restaurant, you are eager to set targets and coach your staff to reach and exceed the set targets.
You have mastered the craft of making sushi and preparing fish and you work on your skills continuously. You lead by example cheering your team on and work side by side with your staff. Your smile doesn't fade even in the busiest moments and the customer experience is always your priority. You are hardworking and motivated and constantly want to evolve and improve as a team leader. You also want your team to make progress and become as great as they can in their work! You are empathic and friendly, and adjust the way you work to suit the needs of your customers and employees. You solve problems independently but are not afraid to ask for help when you need it. You’ll work closely with the Head of Kitchen Operations and other Finnish team leaders.
Your tasks as a head chef will include at least:
- Responsible for kitchen personnel in the restaurant
- Taking care of staff at your location: schedules for kitchen, sick leaves, recruiting with the head of kitchen operations, contracts, training kitchen staff, acting as team leader
- Guidelines for daily routines
- Responsible for the product and quality in own unit
- Self monitoring plans (omavalvontasuunnitelma)
- Orders and stock value
- Responsible for kitchen financial targets in own unit
A specific job description with tasks defined in more detail available upon request.
Your home unit would be in our restaurant in Fredrikinkatu, Helsinki. Your contract starts upon agreement, but to be honest, we would like to see you making something beautiful out of fish as soon as possible.
At work, we live by our values every day and we also hope that you will strongly identify with these:
We Are Passionate: We believe we can have a positive impact on our friends' lives by making their life more enjoyable. We see our work as a calling and this calling requires passion from all of us. We put our hearts out in everything we do, we don't settle for mediocrity and we run the extra mile when needed. Working with passion is never an excuse for bad behavior.
We Are Curious: We love to challenge the ordinary and hate to settle with the obvious. Our world is filled with opportunities and possibilities, obstacles and restrictions should never be the first things on our minds. To us curiosity means openness towards "new" and "change". We should constantly find ourselves asking: " What if? Why not? Could this work?"
We Are Professional: We know our work. But as professionals we also know that we can and must be even better tomorrow: as an individual, as a team as a restaurant concept. We seize all learning opportunities actively and with enthusiasm. We all have been rookies at some point of our lives and we've all needed help from others to grow. For us it's an honor to coach a friend to the next level.
We Are Daring: We dare to challenge the ordinary by trying new and unknown. Some of our experiments are successes and others become failures. If we never fail, we haven't been daring enough. We are open and frank in all interactions and don't shy away from problems that need to be solved. Caring about a co-worker, a customer or a company is a daring act. We dare to care, a bit more than usual.
We Are Friends: At the end of the day, we are a group of friends. As friends we cheer, encourage and defend each other. We even say the ugly truth when needed. In our group there are all kinds of people. We embrace our differences and encourage each other to show their personalities. Above everything, we are loyal to each other, our team and committed to what we want to achieve together.
We offer you a spot in our lively restaurant with amazing co-workers, supportive team leaders and just the right amount of challenge. If you are up to an adventure of your lifetime, please send us your application and resume through this site. Please also include your pay request and your first possible start date in your application. The place will be filled as soon as we have found our sushi hero. We hope we'll be making magic together starting as soon as possible!
