We are Wellington’s favourite fish and chips restaurant and leaders in the growing casual dining sector, offering dine-in, home delivery and quality take-away. We have an innovative menu for fish and chips allowing much more choice and quality. Our customers can not only expect the best fish and chips but also, healthy food options, delicious burgers and other seasonal delicacies. We are a growing brand with opportunities to develop in your career. We currently have two stores, one in Mt Victoria and one in Thorndon.

About the role

  • We are a 7 day week operation and you will be expected to make yourself available for night shifts and weekends. There are also day shifts available and shared fairly in the team. This is a full-time position and a typical week is around 40 hours.

  • You will be paid a competitive salary and a share of revenue based on performance targets.

  • You will be given an opportunity to learn our Front of House systems. We encourage all our chefs to talk with our customers as both sites have open kitchens.
