Kitchen Team Lead

Urban Fare (Yaletown) is conveniently located about a three-minute walk from the skytrain, in a neighbourhood surrounded by apartments, restaurants and entertainment. The store has a diverse and supportive team environment where employees care about each other and work together as a team.

Currently, Urban Fare (Yaletown) is looking for a Kitchen Supervisor to help manage their busy kitchen and restaurant – this is a full-time, salaried position with benefits.

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)
  • Running the show when the Head Chef isn’t there
  • 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.

What’s in it for you?

  • A competitive wage
  • A great team environment and atmosphere, where people are able to create genuine relationships with their colleagues
  • Opportunities to move up, even if you don’t have a degree
  • Christmas parties (boat cruise with live DJs) and other team building events
  • Steady hours, with a steady salary, and benefits (medical, dental, etc.)
  • Skytrain is conveniently located only half a block away

If you feel like you’d be a good fit, we’d love to hear from you!
