BrewDog are on the hunt for a Head Chef for BrewDog Union Square!!
We at BrewDog have one mission. We want to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. Our bars are at the forefront of that mission, delivering amazing beer & customer service at all times. We're opening a site in the beating heart of Aberdeen, Union Square, to allow us to reach more people with epic beer from all over the world. Also creating a sensational food offering, to pair perfectly with that beer.
About The Role
BrewDog Union Square will be our first ever food focused site, creating a unique opportunity for an incredible Head Chef to create something truly special for us, a blueprint for something amazing. You'll be in charge of your realm; the kitchen will be your orchestra & you'll be the conductor. Every single main, desert & side that leaves BrewDog Union Square will be a musical note & you'll take pride in it being executed perfectly and on time.
You'll lead a team of passionate chefs & kitchen team to develop and grow every day. Our goal is to be the best employer ever & you'll be fully bought into this, willing to take a bullet for each of them.*
*Please note, we're 99% sure this not going to be literally required.
About The Team
Our Union Square site will be a first for us, it'll be a site that give us access to beer drinkers who may not otherwise try our beer. You'll be led by a hyper experienced General Manager alongside a team of roughly 30 passionate & confident individuals. Made up of team in the kitchen, on the floor & behind the bar.
You'll have at least at least a couple of years' experience in a kitchen leadership role in a similar site (large & busy). Knowledge of craft beer for this role would be desirable, but a willingness to learn if you don't is essential. We've got all of the tools (and the beer), you just need to be excited to learn. The end goal will be to have someone able to fully create not only an epic menu, but also an epic menu accompanied by spectacular beer & food pairings.
You also must be customer service focused, making sure every single experience a customer has at BrewDog Union Square rocks, a less than favourable yelp review should hurt as much as stubbing your toe or getting vinegar in your eye. You'll be a natural trainer & love seeing the people around you learn & develop, you'll be responsible for nurturing the future talent in BrewDog retail and take pride in that. Experience in working through a new site opening would be radical, this will be a tough ride & we need someone with experience weathering the storm. Also, some financial acumen will be required.
