Rolling Hills Kitchen Gundaroo and Bella’s Feast Catering @ ANU is looking for a Sous Chef to join our team in this successful hospitality group as we move into our post covid growth stage.

The menu is all about from-scratch, country style cooking with international influences, and specialty cuts of steak from our market grill.

You’ll be serving upmarket bistro food with precision to our food savvy local customers and Canberra tourists who have grown to love our destination country gastro pub in Gundaroo, just 20 minutes drive from Gunghalin. Aside from a la carte service, our venue is well known for live music and special events/functions.

About the role:

This long term, min 4 days per week, casual position means there is no unpaid overtime. You’ll be reporting directly to the head chef and owner. You’ll need to be able to work across all sections, operate independently on some quiet days, operate well within our small and tight knit team, and most importantly cheer loudly when all the dockets roll in at once…. After all we are grateful to have a relevant and successful business in the post-covid environment.

This is a hands on role for someone who loves challenges and is passionate about food.
