Sous Chef

The Hoxton, Portland | 15 NW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97209, USA

We’re looking for an experienced Sous Chef to join our team here at the Hoxton Portland!

While this description is meant to give you an idea of how we see the role, it is not meant to be all-inclusive.

What you'll do...

  • Bring delicious flavors to our guests’ tables by managing our busy kitchen
  • Create, execute, and produce top-notch food with a constant eye on the highest quality standards, presentation, and flavor, with an eye on industry trends and neighborhood demands
  • Ensure statutory compliance in all food and drink related areas
  • You will keep well-organized storerooms and inventories that allow for a smooth running kitchen
  • Nurture and develop the talent of the kitchen team, creating an environment that brings out the best in them and where they can be themselves
  • Make sure things are running without hitch, orders and deliveries are coming and going as needed, our service is smooth and our food hygiene standards are sky-high
  • Work with our Executive Chef on ideas and techniques that make our kitchen a creative, ever-changing environment where we’re always looking to come up with new, delicious combinations of tastes

What we're looking for...

  • Previous experience working as part of a fast-moving kitchen team
  • Passion for food is a given; a love for our particular flavors a definite advantage
  • You value learning and development and are looking to join a hard-working team, aiming to make the best food out there
  • Individuals. You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in suits here
  • You’re all about having a positive impact on the people you interact with, leaving them with a memorable experience
  • You’ll live and breathe food and drink, knowing what’s hot, what’s not and who’s who
  • You make people feel good - your team, guests and colleagues alike
  • Methodical and process-driven approach to tasks, but also able to work flexibly and calmly to meet deadlines
  • Ability to take ownership of important issues, solve problems and make effective decisions
  • Ability to work positively and collaboratively to achieve the highest standards of delivery at work
  • You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get stuff done
  • You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once
  • You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way

What's in it for you...

  • Join a young, fast-growing company committed to not just building hotels but building a global brand
  • PTO, great healthcare, competitive salary, and nifty rewards for going the extra mile and living our values
  • Excellent discounts across the global Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even if you decide to leave us!)
  • Plenty of opportunity to progress and change it up as part of a global family of brands
  • Training to get you settled into your role, learning opportunities to broaden your skill set and development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
