Kitchen Team Lead

Urban Fare (False Creek) is conveniently located right in the heart of Olympic village (between two skytrain lines) and their employees are like a little family within the community.

Currently, Urban Fare (False Creek) is looking for a Kitchen Team Lead to help manage their busy kitchen and restaurant – this is a full-time, salaried position with benefits, with a competitive wage.

Duties include:

  • Cooking (pretty basic cooking – we do some fancy stuff for catering, but it’s not like working at a high-end restaurant) – you do have some creativity and freedom though to create dishes!
  • Prepping – basically working the full range of the kitchen
  • Managing people (basically the whole kitchen staff, which could be up to 10 people)- these duties are split up between three supervisors who manage the kitchen staff
  • Organizing your team - preparing the buffet and setting up the hot cases
  • Ordering and controlling shrink (so the store doesn’t overcook and overproduce)

Some experience in a similar role is necessary for this role, and having open availability in your schedule is also a requirement. It’s an asset if you have your FoodSafe Certificate and Serving It Right (but not mandatory, as we can put you through the courses to obtain them). Leadership skills and previous experience supervising a team is crucial, and a huge aspect of this role.

Our team is very important to us, and we like to treat our employees like family, instead of making them feel like a number. It’s important to us that our new team members feel welcome and feel like they fit in, so we check in with everyone regularly to make sure that they’re comfortable.

Benefits are offered after a year (assuming you’ve put in a certain number of hours), we give out a personalized “Employee of the Month” plaque (along with a $100 gift card and a parking pass), we occasionally do luncheons, and we like to make sure our employees are taken care of, as we recognize that culture in the store is very important.

If you feel like you’d be a good fit and want to join our Urban Fare (False Creek) family, we’d love to hear from you!
