Location: Orgia Wine Bar, Falmouth
Salary: £12 - £15 per hour
Position: Permanent
Hours: 38 Hours per week
Recruiter: The Orgia Wine Bar and Kitchen
Posted: 07/03/2022

The Orgia is Falmouth’s newest wine bar and kitchen brought to you by the owners of The Bottle in Newquay. Aiming to be Cornwall’s first restaurant with a dedicated skin contact wine list, The Orgia’s adventurous wine selection will also have a keen focus on biodynamic and natural wines but there will still be plenty of choice for those who take comfort in the familiarity of more traditional offerings.

The Orgia’s menu has also been carefully crafted to reflect and amplify the flavour profiles of the wines, with a focus on smaller plates allowing for customers to enjoy light bites, a full dining experience or an intimate evening of sharing with loved ones. Here the menu also has a sense of place, using locally sourced ingredients aligning with the Cornish coastline’s rich biodiversity blended with a European vibe with cheese and charcuterie being a key feature

We are currently looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our professional team as Chefs/Cooks, working closely with the Restaurant Manager and Owners. Your role will involve prepping for service, complying with all aspects of food hygiene, and kitchen during service. This is also a great opportunity for someone to have a creative input in the menu. There is a large emphasis on working with fresh simple ingredients and being creative with those ingredients as well as championing cheese and charcuterie in the dishes we serve. The Orgia’s menu also has a very European vibe with influences from France and Spain so is a great chance for anyone who is passionate about European food to influence the menu.

This is a unique opportunity to be part of something new and fun and a chance to have a hand in menu development.

To be considered for this opportunity you must have:

- Passion and respect for ingredients and desire to produce quality food with sustainable practices.

- An enthusiastic attitude.

- Ability to work unsupervised

- Previous kitchen experience essential

- Excellent communication skills and open mindset.

- Respect for your team members.

- Level 2 Food Hygiene certificate
- Experience handling seafood/shellfish a plus but not essential

The position is looking to begin in April 2022 with input available into the new restaurant and pre-opening training.

The position is a full time, permanent year round position working 5 days a week. As The Orgia is primarily open in the evenings, except during peak season, the ability to work weekends and evenings is essential however we do try to be as flexible with hours as possible.

In addition we offer the following benefits:

- a share of tips
- staff discount
- social events
- training and development opportunities including Level 3 Food Hygiene.

If you are interested in being part of a new adventure and believe you would be the right person for the role we would love to hear from you!
