- Proud Winner of Time Out's 'Best Pub Food' 2017!
- Take ownership - team, costings, menus, driving sales - a true Head Chef role.
Winner of 'Best Pub Food' at the 2017 Time Out Pub Awards, The Erko is a community-focused pub with a love for all things homegrown, spicy and smoked!
Located in Erskineville - this is a great work location for those living locally, or are close to public transport (plenty of buses and walking distance to Newtown train station).
Taking over from the current Head Chef who is a total nerd for all thing BBQ, Smoker and home grown Chillies, we would love you to get a chance to work together and nerd off on these bits if this is your jam! With him looking to relocate interstate - sure there's big shoes to fill - but so much room to come in, take over and make this your own.
Obviously focusing on the day to day of running the place (menus, costings, service, ordering, cleanliness, rosters etc) but also being involved in the big picture cool stuff - like putting together awesome community based events. A recent example was a fantastic PigFest the gang put together with sister venue Public House Petersham up the road - really showcasing what the kitchen can do.
If you have a passion for all things smokey, then this is the home for you. Enjoy driving the menu creation and really have some fun with the food style. We're things like your own rubs, mops and sauces, having fun with the daily smoker specials and working with the team towards building the Erko's future.
Enjoy great company support and a balanced lifestyle.
