Missions: Sous-chef

The significance of this profession in temporary roles lies in the sous-chef's ability to quickly adapt to different work environments, thus ensuring the continuity of service and the maintenance of quality standards, especially during absences or transition periods.
The sous-chef supervises the preparation of dishes in the chef's absence, manages the kitchen team, and ensures supply and stock management. They actively participate in creating new menus and developing dishes, ensuring cost control and adherence to hygiene standards. The sous-chief is also responsible for training new employees and passing on culinary techniques. Their ability to maintain a positive and productive work atmosphere is essential for the smooth running of the service.

Skills and training

A diploma in cooking, such as a vocational certificate in cooking, a professional baccalaureate in cooking, or a higher technical certificate in hotel and restaurant management, is highly recommended. Additional training in management and hygiene can be advantageous. Professional experience is crucial for obtaining this position.
The sous-chef can progress to the position of head chef, with full responsibility for the kitchen. Other prospects include specializing in certain types of cuisine or culinary techniques or evolving into management roles within the restaurant sector.
Temporary work allows the sous-chef to gain diverse experience, working in different types of establishments and with various teams. This promotes the development of adaptive skills, the discovery of new culinary practices, and the expansion of a professional network. Temporary work also offers valuable flexibility, allowing one to choose assignments that align with their professional and personal aspirations. For establishments, hiring a temporary sous-chef can be ideal for testing a candidate's skills before a long-term commitment.
