Chef Wanted

We’ve taken craft brewing to the next level with our three-storey Brewery in the heart of Dunwich, the gateway to North Stradbroke Island. With twelve beers on tap across 2 bars, a fully equipped kitchen serving the freshest local cuisine and a sunset roof top bar with spectacular views, we are fast becoming THE destination outside of Brisbane, including being included in the 2023 Best of Queensland Experience accrediation.

We’re looking for a motivated, skilled, and enthusiastic Chef de Partie to help deliver our vision for Straddie Brewing Co – a community meeting place, an independent and locally owned and operated manufacturer, and a destination venue that encourages visitors to be mindful and to cherish and actively protect Straddie’s vast natural beauty, friendly island vibe and rich history.

Loving Straddie and Island life is essential.

Joining our Head Chef Casey Burke and a passionate kitchen team, this unique and highly sought-after opportunity will see you work in a fast-paced environment with a menu focused on sustainable, local and seasonal produce.

Attributes we’re looking for:
To be able to work and communicate effectively in a fast-paced environment;
Commercial Cookery Certification or equivalent work experience (minimum 3 years);
Demonstrated experience within a 200 pax casual-dining establishment;
Demonstrated leadership capabilities and a team player;
Neo-Neapolitan pizzaiolo experience (not essential but an awesome bonus);
Most of all, a love and appreciation for Straddie.

In return, we’re offering you a:
Small welcoming team environment where your ideas are heard and implemented;
Competitive salary dependent on experience;
Guaranteed Sea change – no more traffic, only sea breezes;
Career defining opportunity with an up and coming brand;
Straddie and her amazing beaches at your doorstep;
Generous staff discounts.

We are a family orientated business and welcome applications from couples and families seeking to relocate to North Stradbroke Island. Work opportunities may be available for partners. We also believe variety is the spice of life and actively encourage all our staff to train across a variety of tasks and areas of our business, allowing greater opportunity for career progression within Straddie Brewing Co, and into the future.
