Job Description

RHEA Recruitment, an international recruitment agency specializing in hospitality and restaurant industries, is searching for one of its clients:

Assistant Sous Chef (M/F)

The restaurant is a dining establishment with 45/50 seated places. It operates from Tuesday to Saturday, and it is recognized by gastronomic guides worldwide, aiming to continue evolving within these guides.

Responsibilities: Reporting to the executive chef, the assistant sous chef is a trustworthy individual responsible for assisting the Head Chef in all aspects: creation, recruitment, integration, training, and management.

The kitchen brigade is structured as follows:

  • 1 executive chef
  • 1 sous chef/assistant chef
  • 1 chef de partie
  • 4 chefs de partie (cold kitchen, fish, meat, desserts)
  • 2 1⁄2 chefs de partie
  • 2 commis chefs
  • 2 apprentices
  • 2 dishwashers

The pastry brigade, entirely independent of the kitchen, consists of a pastry chef, a second pastry chef, a chef de partie, 1⁄2 chef de partie, and a commis.

Responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring the smooth operation of the kitchens
  • Following specifications, participating in kitchen development
  • Liaising with suppliers
  • Controlling the quality of received products from suppliers
  • Participating in and overseeing preparations
  • Organizing services and the pass (the sous chef assists the head chef during lunch and dinner services)
  • Controlling and monitoring orders

Implementation of new dishes and quality standards:

  • Participating in tastings of new dishes
  • Participating in the search for products
  • Contributing to the development of technical sheets
  • Training teams on new dishes

Team management:

  • Welcoming new recruits
  • Training all teams
  • Evaluating brigade members
  • Developing brigade members
  • Ensuring team stability

Financial management involvement:

  • Participating in creating team attendance schedules
  • Controlling orders
  • Contributing to the creation of technical sheets for transmission to the cost controller
  • Responsible for end-of-month inventories

Hygiene and sanitation:

  • Ensuring the kitchens are well-maintained
  • Ensuring the hygiene of brigade members
  • Ensuring compliance with HACCP standards

The assistant sous chef must be capable of independently leading the kitchen in the absence of the head chef.

Profile: Strong organizational skills and a team-oriented approach are essential qualities. Regardless of formal education, the candidate’s personality and the establishments they have worked in will make a difference. A successful experience of at least 3 years in a similar role in the high-end restaurant industry and excellent interpersonal skills are required. Being energetic, precise, and autonomous are crucial assets for successfully fulfilling the assigned mission.


  • Salary: €3500 gross *12 months
  • Days off: Sunday and Monday
  • Schedule: mixed shifts (split and continuous)
  • Start date: ASAP or the second week of January
