Head Chef | L’affare | Wellington

posted on

At L’affare we love coffee (and we love food too!).

We need a new Head Chef to lead the team at our flagship café on College Street in Wellington.

College Street is the spiritual home of L’affare – it’s where it all started, where it grew from and where Wellingtonians have been coming for nearly 30 years to feel a part of things.

It is a big, busy and challenging café to work in and, if you’re not faint-hearted, very rewarding too!

You’ll need 5 years’ experience as a chef leading teams, a passion for food, good knowledge and enthusiasm. You’ll need to be organized, efficient and run a good, tight ship with a happy crew.

If you don’t love food….this role’s not for you.

If you don’t love cooking….this role’s not for you.

If you don’t have energy & enthusiasm….this role’s not for you.

If you want a rewarding role leading a great team….let’s talk.
