An exciting job opportunity exists for a motivated cook to join our small and passionate team at Piccolo Coffee Roasters in Warrnambool. We're looking for someone who loves food, has experience in a commercial kitchen and would thrive in a busy café where they get to plan the menu and showcase their skills. The successful applicant will work 15-20 hours each week, with the potential to grow the position into a full-time role. He or she will need to work cooperatively in a small team, but also have the ability to work independently and to run our kitchen unsupervised. It will be important for the successful candidate to demonstrate experience ordering and managing stock, designing menus, budgeting dishes and organising a kitchen to prepare and cook food efficiently and to a high standard. In addition to having innovative food ideas and skills with different dietary requirements, it will be important to demonstrate a passion for coffee and thirst for coffee knowledge. Working in a small team, the role will require some front of house duties, so the ability to make an espresso and operate a coffee machine is preferred, but not essential. The successful applicant will present well, display good personal hygiene, have a positive can-do attitude and show enthusiasm for the responsibility of managing our food activities. Remuneration will be negotiated at, or above, the award rate depending on experience. If this sounds like a position for you, please send a cover letter and current resume to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it into us at Shop 8, 743 Raglan Parade. For further information please call Jon or Olivia on 5562 9392. Applications close on Friday, September 9 or sooner for the right candidate.
