A lovely friendly team - and great perks

Join us at Poco

Are you passionate about high quality food and service? Like to work in a team? Fancy working with the best view in town?

We are looking to expand the team at Poco and currently have the following vacancies:

 

Trainee Chef


Great opportunity to join a friendly team working with high quality ingredients in a small busy pizzeria by the sea in Lyme Regis.


We’re looking for someone with a passion for food and willingness to learn - we can teach you the rest. We will support an apprenticeship if you would like to pursue that route.


You will be supporting the head chef in making dough, passata and desserts as well as preparing ingredients for service. We source our ingredients from Italy and will encourage you to learn more about the ingredients and recognise great quality.


You will contribute to the high hygiene standards in the kitchen and follow process to ensure consistency of delivery.


We will also teach you to manage our wood fired oven and to make and cook pizzas during service.


To give you the widest experience possible, hours will be 4 full days - 2 prep days (8am-4pm) and 2 service days (2pm-close). One of the service days will be over the weekend (although we are always closed on Sundays)


This role could also suit someone with more experience who could fasttrack to assistant chef.


We are committed to ethical employment and are the first small business in the UK to be awarded ‘Hospitality Assured’ by The Institute of Hospitality - recognising our dedication to providing high quality service.


Competitive wage according to age and experience

 

Restaurant Supervisor


We are looking for someone with front of house experience (or similar relevant) to join our small, friendly team at our pizza restaurant on the seafront in Lyme Regis.


Duties will include managing bookings and enquiries, preparing the restaurant for service, liaising with the Head Chef to communicate daily specials, stock control on non food items, training front of house staff, maintaining service standards, monitoring customer feedback and reacting accordingly.

 

You will ideally have experience with online reservations systems and EPOS but this can be taught if required. Crucially, you will understand and be driven to deliver excellent customer service.


Hours will be 2 days 10am - 6pm and 2 days 2pm - close  (one of which will be a weekend.) We are always closed on Sundays.


We are committed to being an ethical employer and were the first small business in the UK to be awarded ‘Hospitality Assured’ by the Institute of Hospitality, demonstrating our focus on delivering excellence across the business.


Salary dependent on age and experience.

Benefits of working at Poco

Our ethos is to create an environment where staff are happy to work and want to stay. So we believe that planning rotas well in advance to allow you to plan your time off is as important as good pay and conditions.

We train our staff - not just on service but on our menu too. We only use the best ingredients from trusted Italian suppliers and it's important that you understand the benefits and provenance of our food. So we hold regular tastings as well as providing all staff with a pizza to take home at the end of a shift - so that you can recommend your favourite pizzas to our guests.

A supportive team. We have a no negativity policy. All staff work together and support each other.

Uniform provided - do you look good in stripes? 

Staff Discount - Fancy a pizza on your night off? We've got you covered.

And of course that glorious view - every shift.
