Summer + Fringe Team 2019
Street food super team required to join us in our temporary July/August home of George Square Gardens, Edinburgh.
We are currently recruiting for our Edinburgh summer team for Chick+Pea, Kebabbar and our new Vegan Shack.
At Chick+Pea we love recreating the amazing flavours of the middle-east and Mediterranean, we serve an entirely vegetarian menu of falafel, halloumi fries and loads of hummus. We serve all food out of our beautiful vintage Citroen H van named Albert.
At Kebabbar we are obsessed with kebabs and finding the perfect combo of chicken, chips and sauce. All kebabs are served in Greek pitta with fries and secret ingredient sauces. We serve our kebabs out of our new horsebox - yet to be named.
New for this festival we will be recreating your favourite foods - vegan style. For this we will be working out of a bespoke built shed.
Team Leads -
You will be in charge of looking after the team and making sure everybody knows what they are doing and that we have enough food. You will be tasked with opening and closing the units which will include setting up and cashing up each day.
You will have an awesome sense of humour and know how to keep the morale of the van positive during a long, hot summer shift. It is essential that you have experience in supervising teams and it is super important that you have a positive and enthusiastic attitude.
We are looking for people to work a minimum of 5 days a week in this role. It is essential that you are available from the middle of July - end of August.
Team Member -
You are one of the most important parts of the setup - you will be customer facing and responsible for ensuring the food looks great. There are multiple positions in each unit and these will be rotated during shifts, the positions include till, fry section and grill.
It is essential that you have some experience in a fast paced environment, it does not matter if this is related or bar work or stockroom work etc. If you do not have experience in any job then it is essential that you have the right attitude and a passion for food and great customer service.
We are looking for people who are able to work a minimum of 4 days a week for this role. It is essential that you are available from July - end of August.
Food Prep -
We have our own prep kitchen offsite where we conjur up our falafel, hummus, kebabs and various sauces. You will be the master of this kitchen and chief liaison with the Team Leads on site.
The hours for this role are a lot more flexible. We need you to be available immediately until the end of August. It is essential that you have experience working in a food environment and hold a food hygiene certificate.
We want the best people to join us and in turn we want to offer you the best benefits. As such you will receive a very competitive wage, a discretionary bonus, free food when you work, friends and family discount and free access to certain shows. We also like to venture off on random company nights out (after a busy shift).
How to Apply:
If you would like to be considered for a position we encourage you to contact us ASAP, please send a copy of your CV as well as a cover letter to explain why you would like to work for us and why we should hire you. We cannot stress enough - we receive so many applicants and we ignore so many that do not take the time to write us a cover letter.
