Part-time Kitchen Assistant

Location: The Glee Club Glasgow, Renfrew Street, G2 3AB

Part Time Kitchen Assistant required for an immediate start - Evening hours

The Glee Club is a brand new comedy and live entertainment venue in Glasgow City Centre. We are looking for someone who is a hard worker, passionate about food and works well under pressure.

Main Job Roles:

- Assist head chef in prep and service

- Produce high quality food

- Maintain high standards of cleanliness in the kitchen

- Assist head chef with deliveries / deep cleans etc

As we are a new venue the hours will be limited to mainly Friday and Saturday nights. Generally shifts start at 5pm and finish around 10/10.30pm. Come mid November - December we will be a lot busier and there could be up to 4 / 5 shifts a week. You will be required to work almost all of these including New Years Eve.

As we are a comedy club the service windows are slightly different to a regular restaurant. We aim to get everyone served before the show starts which generally gives us just over an hour to get as many dishes out as possible. This could be up to 300 covers at our very busiest.

Kitchen experience is required.

Rate of pay: £8.90 per hour

Please apply with a CV and cover letter to annabel@glee.co.uk.
