Kitchen Assistant

About The Seafood Bar

Fons de Visscher was a respected fishmonger for already 27 years in Helmond; a city in Brabant, when he decided to start a new venture. Driven by his passion for fish and great wines, Fons created The Seafood Bar. The first Seafood Bar opened its doors in 2012.

The Seafood Bar is a modern restaurant and offers an array of the freshest fish and other seafood. Every day, we prepare these beautiful products with great passion and care to enhance their pure flavors. Our purpose is to provide our guests a wonderful and delicious experience in a casual and cozy setting.

Meanwhile, we have opened 3 restaurants already and we will open the very first Seafood Shop in Amsterdam soon. With 3 busy restaurants; which are all listed in the TripAdvisor 100 best-rated restaurants in Amsterdam (out of 2300 restaurants!), and all our future plans, we are always on the lookout for great new colleagues!

About the position

As part of the culinary team you are responsible for the highlight of a Seafood Bar experience: which is the food! As a kitchen assistant you support the culinary team mainly with the preparations (mise en place), preparing the sides and simple dishes, and with the cleaning of the kitchen. We do not require (much) kitchen experience for the position of kitchen assistant, since we will train you and if necessary, we will teach you the basics.

A consistently great quality is extremely important to us. Therefore, it is imperative that you, together with your colleagues, make sure that every single item that leaves the kitchen is up to our standards. Hence, following our recipes and guidelines for presentation is a must.

• you are a passionate and hardworking person who is eager to learn;
• you will make sure that standards are met always;
• you will make sure to follow all the regulations regarding hygiene and food safety (HACCP);
• you will make sure that the kitchen is cleaned properly always;
• you live in Amsterdam or nearby;
• flexibility: you don’t have a 9 to 5 mentality and you don’t mind working on weekends;
• the ability to speak and write at least English fluently.

You would really excite us with:
• a hospitable and guest driven attitude;
• a hands-on mentality;
• a great sense of responsibility;
• a critical eye;
• being a team player with great social skills;
• the ability to handle pressure well.

What we have to offer you:
