So why would you want to work for us? We’re a friendly and welcoming bunch at Stange who truly believe that you should love what you do. We encourage those who have a passion for the industry and help to further careers and training where we can to allow those who wish to progress both within their own development and within the company. Many front of house staff have gone on to take on management roles along with kitchen porters and introductory chefs taking on training and step up into a more hands on role in the kitchen. We have also had general managers step up into more senior operational roles within the whole company.
Recruitment is important to us and we always want to ensure that we hire the right people so that each member adds their own worth to the company creating a hard working and dedicated team.
