Our purpose as an employer is to empower our people to find their own secret recipe in life too.

WHAT THE WE CAN OFFER YOU

MORE ABOUT THE ROLE

As a Team Member you will be a brand ambassador, wearing the 'swag' with pride while channelling some authentic Southern Hospitality charm.

Your daily duties will include:

Teamwork - the 'not-so' secret to success is teamwork. Happy teams deliver the very best customer service that our guests deserve. Each day you will be your teammates wing man or woman, get stuck in, and live our people promise of being our Best Self, making a Difference and having Fun.

Hospitality & service - often the 1st point of contact; we'd expect you to welcome our guests with a genuine warmth, and southern hospitality smile, ensuring they're served our world-famous chicken in line with KFC's high brand standard. You will also be responsible for order accuracy guaranteeing our guests get the products they have chosen...even right down to the dips. Our guests are our family and we never want to disappoint them.

It's not too hot to handle - its fast, it's fun and it all goes down in the middle of the house. You'll be 'rocking out' cooking our skin-on-fries, hash and popcorn or whipping up our burgers, wraps sides and salads...all the while keeping the equipment areas clean, tidy & topped up in line with Health & Food safety procedures.

The heart of the kitchen - the Cook has great responsibility. It's the big daddy of a role and it's not for everyone. We know this. It's hot and it takes some grit, but we'd argue it is the most rewarding. You will be responsible for hand preparing and cooking our world-famous chicken to the highest gold standard ensuring it meets our guests' (& yours) finger lickin' good expectations. We may not change lives, but we may feed those that do.
