Job description

Award-winning sustainable brand, Flat Earth, is looking for an experienced pizza chef who has a proven track record in hospitality and a love of creative cooking for their new restaurant in east London. Featured as 1 of the top 10 eco-eateries in London by the Evening Standard, this is the chance to work within a small, independent business that likes to do things differently. Known for our dough - a mix of heritage grains - we are looking for someone who knows their way around a pizza paddle and makes dough from scratch.

We've just opened our first restaurant in Bethnal Green following 2.5 years of kitchen residencies in pubs. It's a very exciting time to join a small but growing company.

Key Responsibilities

  • Working to our special recipe to create legendary dough using heritage grain flour
  • Pickling and fermenting
  • Prep for service
  • Working during service in a pressurised environment
  • Working to new recipes with regularly changing menus, in line with the seasons
  • Cooking pizzas in a Moretti Forni electric oven

What you’ll get from us:

  • £12 an hour PLUS tips shared fairly amongst the team (additional to the fixed rate of pay)
  • Non-contributory pension scheme
  • The freedom and encouragement to grow and develop yourself and our company
  • Free pizza on shift
  • Discounts for eat in for yourself, friends & family
  • Cost price wine from our bottle shops
  • Unlimited coffee on shift
  • Extra day off for your birthday

What we offer: 

We want you to work in an environment where you can express your personality and hone your creativity through our menus and not be confined to the rules of the bigger brands. We provide a non-contributory pension scheme, meals at work, a share of any gratuities made and most importantly we offer an environment where you will be welcome and a genuine part of the Flat Earth family.
