Manchester Jobs

We are recruiting for Manchester

We’re passionate about our food, drink and service. We personally source the very best of food and drink that Catalunya and Spain has. We’re a family owned and run company, with husband and wife team, Peter & Elaine Kinsella at the helm – real, honest and genuine people and a business that always tries to do the right thing – for our staff, suppliers and customers. We want people who share our love of food and Spain. Lunya represents to us, everything that we love about the best bars and restaurants in Barcelona and beyond. Above all else, the food must do the talking, served with character, personality, knowledge and pride. If you would like to join our Manchester team, read on.

 Chefs de Partie, Commis Chefs & Kitchen Porters
Chef de Partie £16,500-£17,500 plus potential bonus of up to £1,000
Commis Chefs £6.90 per hour plus potential bonus of up to 50p an hour
Kitchen Porters £6.70 per hour plus potential bonus of up to 50p an hour

Our kitchen is extremely busy. With tapas, we cook over 8000 dishes every week and make lots of fresh food for the deli and bake over 1000 loaves of sourdough bread a week. Everything is made by us from the best possible ingredients.

At Chef de Partie level we need chefs who can cook, have a great fabulous palette, are very well organised and can run a busy section.  Experience with high quality, fresh ingredients and cooking from scratch are essential.

Commis Chefs need at least one year’s experience at a similar level (or college trained to NVQ level 2), or quick to learn and have good knife skills and quick at prep.

A knowledge of Spanish gastronomy is highly desirable, too. You need to have the desire and drive to make sure Lunya Manchester is regarded as one of the UK’s best Spanish restaurants and maintains and continues to raise the standards set already by our Liverpool restaurant.
