Global Thai Restaurant & Bar in Whakatane needs a Thai cuisine chef to join our busy three chef Thai restaurant.

We are seeking a chef with appropriate Thai cuisine cooking qualifications and at least four years full time restaurant or hotel work experience cooking Thai cuisine.

You will be joining our other full time Thai cuisine chef and European chef.

We are genuine Thai restaurant - our customers appreciate that we cook authentic Thai food with the correct balance of sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy flavours and attention to texture, color and presentation.

Beyond standard cooking skills your responsibilities will include making entrees and sauces, food planning, stock control and cleaning activities on quiet nights when no kitchen hand is employed.

Of course you must be well experienced in fruit and vegetable carving to meet the presentation requirements of the role.

We offer $18 per hour over a standard five and a half day, 45 hour week with some overtime, four weeks paid holiday, and other standard entitlements including sick leave. Work hours are typically 11:00am to 2:00pm and 4:30pm until 9:30pm but you need to be flexible according to our business needs,

Note that the restaurant offers both Thai and European cuisine so any ability to also cook European cuisine when our European chef is on their day off or annual leave would be well regarded.

We have accommodation available within walking distance of the restaurant but you will have to pay a share of the rent, power and water bills.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
