What we’re looking for in our Kitchen Team Leader
Our team leader role requires flexibility to cover different shifts and tasks. It is an advantage but not essential that our team members have worked in a face to face role with customers previously and experience in a kitchen/catering setting is desirable.

Our people share a common purpose: to improve the health, wellbeing and life chances of all, but especially young people facing adversity and challenges.
To achieve this, we subscribe to a set of core values and behaviors: HEART. Helpful, Efficient, Authentic, Respectful and Team-Spirited. Our HEART values recognise the need for equality, diversity, and inclusion and to ensure we are reaching all, we capture this information at both the attraction and onboarding stages of employment.
