The UK's second busiest city, Birmingham is a great place to begin a career as a Chef. Taking a Chef role in Birmingham is the perfect opportunity to advance into a senior role in the culinary industry and develop new kitchen skills.
A Chef is primarily responsible for all aspects of the kitchen, from planning the menu, managing the kitchen staff, and preparing the food to a high standard. This role requires a candidate who has outstanding cooking skills, who is also a great leader. You should have previous experience in the kitchen and also experience in a managerial role as you will be supervising the whole kitchen team. As a Chef you would also work closely with the Restaurant Manager to ensure the restaurant is at its best.
Your role as a Chef combines both the internal kitchen process (the making of the food) and external, serving the food and running the staff. You will need to have certain soft skills to be able to manage relations with the kitchen colleagues, serving stuff, external delivery staff, and customers. You must be a skilled leader who has solid communication skills to get the best out of your colleagues. To deliver the food on time, you will need to be able to work under pressure and organise each process so that the dish arrives to the guest at its finest.
