We are recruiting a Chef!

As a Chef at New World Trading Company, you are the reason our guests leave with a smile on their face and a wee food baby. You prepare and cook fresh food to order in a busy service and you do it as a part of your incredible team.

Don’t forget to share your skills with the rest of your team though, everything you do to help train your team at this point will only make you stronger.
