Job type: Full Time
A bit about us:
We are a small restaurant chain of 28 restaurants across New Zealand in a unique position of growth and change internally. We have a small central team all working together, passionate to build an awesome all-round company based on values and people orientated principals.
This unique position means our restaurant management and staff (you) can really make a difference to helping the company grow and develop. You can add your ideas and plans investing in the direction and changes of our restaurants that will really make a difference. This is an exciting opportunity and a great time to join with us!
About the role:
We need a Back of House Team Member (a.k.a. Grillers, a.k.a Flamethrowers) to join our team. You'll be working the grills and cooking our PERi-PERi Chicken! We want you to want to make our customers feel warm and fuzzy, to go that extra mile that keeps them coming back for more of that PERi-PERi goodness by grilling the best chicken in town.
Your main responsibility as Back of House Staff is to ensure that you are preparing, cooking and presenting a consistently high level of food for your customers, in a clean and safe restaurant environment.
The duties covered in the back of house include food preparation and cooking on the flame grill, flat top grill and chip fryer in the restaurant. All aspects of your training in the back of house are completed using our in-house training programme.
What we are looking for:
you’ll have a passion for making people happy and providing great customer service, take pride in cooking some mouth-watering food to the best of your ability, have the courage to challenge the status quo – if somethings not right don’t let it get served, have the integrity to hold your hands up to mistakes, and treat your colleagues and your customers like family. You’ll have excellent communication skills, have a positive attitude and work well under pressure.
We are building a great team, but we have work to do. We are moving the team towards creating a real customer focused restaurant feel, we are looking for people who are fun, energetic and friendly who can bring passion into our beautiful restaurants and deliver an exceptional experience to our customers with High Quality Food.
There’s a lot more to a career at Nando’s than you might think. True, we believe we have the best PERI-PERI chicken in town. But we all know "it’s the people that make the chicken" – which is why we look for values over experience and offer a whole host of benefits including:
- A free Nando’s meal every shift you work
- Career Progression, helping people develop from Front and Back of House staff to Shift Supervisors, Assistant Managers and Restaurant Managers to Area Managers and beyond! We have a great training programme that if you want to progress, ensures you get there!
- Good work/life balance
- Newly designed comfortable uniform that you can individualise to suit your personality
- We run social events, competitions and parties to ensure while we may work hard (this is hospitality after all) we play just as hard too! Including an annual Christmas Party!
- A Nationwide Mastergriller Competition where winners are sent abroad to compete (all expenses paid).
There is a load of other benefits too, but if we listed them all here you’d never get around to applying!
