Commis Chef - Family owed deli/foodstore Rochestown Cork
Cinnamon Cottage

We are excited to announce that a vacancy for a junior cook/commis chef has become available in our award winning, premium family run delicatessen and bakery, located just off the Rochestown Road.

Shifts include Tuesday-Friday (7am-4.30pm) no nights and 2 consecutive days off (47hrs approx - negotiable). Ideal for someone looking to gain more experience and responsibility in a professional kitchen.

We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality, homemade dishes including dinners, sides, fresh salads, soups, sauces and much more. Using seasonal and local ingredients where possible, we cook a variety of delicious homemade meals daily including GF, Vegan and Vegetarian options for customers in our own store and other stores which we supply (see @cinnamoncottage on Instagram to see our latest products).

We are looking for someone with some kitchen experience but plenty of on-site training will be available. Our menu consists of traditional Irish dishes as well as a mixture of others such as curries or casseroles. We want someone who works well with others, has a strong interest in cooking and learning, and good organisational skills.

The person will be working with a team of 3 other chefs and reporting to the head chef.

Some of the main responsibilities of the role include:

  • Manage stock
  • Have excellent attention to detail.
  • Deliver a high standard of cooking on a daily basis, including preparing salads and sandwiches, learning how to cook a variety of dinners and sauces from scratch, prepare fresh sides and salads daily and getting meals prepared to send into our shop for sale.
  • Have a high level of hygiene and cleanliness, including HACCP training

The work is varied and rewarding. Working hours are ideal and very social, no nights, no varied shift work and more time to enjoy evenings and weekdays with friends and family. The shop closes for annual holidays for 1 week after Christmas Eve so all of our team can get a well deserved break. We hold a staff night out every 3-4 months so everyone at the Cottage can get to know one another - bowling, go karting...we do it all!

The right candidate will be offered on-site training on our menu, mentoring, external training courses and many opportunities to help develop new menus. Salary is negotiable, competitive and depends on experience.

If this role sounds like the one for you, please email us with a bit about yourself and your CV. Interviews are in-person, so please only applicants who are currently in Cork/Ireland. No accommodation available.
