Our food is freshly prepared every day by our chefs, using only the most authentic and freshest ingredients, carefully sourced. As Head or Sous Chef you would need to oversee these preparations as well as taking responsibility for ordering and stock control. So you will require great cooking skills (or great potential), and a firm commitment to consistency of production.
In return, Carluccio’s will offer you genuine opportunities to progress.
One of the key differences about Carluccio’s is the authenticity and freshness of our food, made daily in our kitchens.
We recognise that it is our chefs who help us keep this commitment to fresh and authentic food, which is why we realise the importance of developing, training and investing in them.
The training we provide gives our chefs a solid foundation in running a kitchen to consistently achieve our high food standards. At the end of chef training, you will have the confidence and knowledge to be successful within a busy kitchen.
The training involves working hands-on in the business, with experienced Chefs as your mentors who will share their skills and knowledge with you, and be there for you throughout your training.
The training will cover working in each section of the kitchen. As our food is made fresh daily, how to make it to a consistent standard is a highly important part of the training. Once this has been mastered, you will be given training on how to recruit, train and develop the team, how to manage deliveries and stocks, and how to cost a rota. You will also be instructed in the important areas of hygiene and health and safety legislation.
Initial training lasts 4 weeks, but once you have successfully completed our Training Programme we will continue to help you evolve your career.
We are also committed to setting our Chefs objectives and conducting performance reviews.
We offer a wide range of training and development courses, from weekly sessions in our training kitchen to an 11-week course for experienced Commis Chefs & Sous Chefs, run in conjunction with Westminster Kingsway College in London. We also run a 3 (2 weeks)-week course for our Head Chefs in Italy.
In addition, in any one month we run up to 50 off-the-job training courses, ranging from Management Skills development to Italian Food Masterclasses with our resident experts, to courses to keep you safe: such as First Aid, Food Hygiene, and Health and Safety.
Most of all, our training gives you a “crash course” on Italy: its food, its culture, its language. Ciao!
