KITCHEN STAFF / BACK OF HOUSE

Salary TBC + benefits + free food on your shift!

We’re sure you’ll have seen a YO! Sushi kitchen before. You know, the exciting place in the middle of the conveyor belt where lots of tasty dishes are lovingly and skilfully prepared. This is your chance to enter the circle of trust and show us what you’ve got. Fresh fish isn’t the only thing on the menu either. It’s an environment where there’s an incredible amount to learn, see and do. And in return for your dazzling contribution, we’ll give you a clear path up the YO! Sushi ladder, together with a tasty salary and benefits package. Interested? Here’s what we’d like you to do:

  • Serve up some of the finest quality recipes this side of Japan
  • Do what the head chef tells you (at least until you get to be head chef)
  • Make the customers happy by giving them what they want – and more
  • Be clean, organised and meticulous to the point of obsession
  • Be happy and pleasant to work with – not too much to ask
  • Be funky (we’re not sure what this means but it sounds good)

Of course, not just anyone can wander in and start throwing knives around. So we’d like:

  • Proven Kitchen experience - or something very similar
  • The ability to communicate well (sharp knives good; sharp tongues not so good)
  • A customer focus, remembering that the guy on the other side pays all our wages
  • A nice cool head even when things are manically busy
  • A good team spirit – it makes everyone’s life easier

If you’re interested, then get stuck in. Drop us a line and we’ll get things moving faster than one of our lunchtime shifts. You must be eligible to work in the UK

Waiting Staff / Front of House

Salary TBC + benefits + free food on your shift!

Satisfying customers’ appetites is our speciality. But as one of our front-of-house team, you’ll need to satisfy their curiosity too. There’ll be lots of questions to answer and lots of orders to juggle. So you’ll have the chance to develop the type of communication skills that will be useful wherever you go in life. Stick with us and we’ll give you a clear path up the YO! Sushi ladder, complemented by a tasty salary and benefits package. What’s more, you’ll get to work in a hospitality environment that’s unlike anywhere you’ve worked (unless you’ve worked at YO! Sushi before). Interested? Then here’s what we’d like you to do:

  • Make our customers feel like it’s their birthday, even if it isn’t
  • To get stuck in and help keep everything ridiculously spotless and organised
  • To help your team mates – they’ll return the favour
  • Explain the menu (incredibly, some people still don’t know what Takoyaki is!)
  • Maybe make a recommendation if they’re stuck
  • Be the type of happy, patient and informed person you’d want to be served by if you were ravenous

Whilst we can teach you a lot, we’d still like you to bring a few skills to the table, namely:

  • Proven previous experience within a similar environment.
  • A flair for sales
  • The ability to get on well with people from all walks of life
  • The skills to give the customer what they need (which is more than just a pair of chopsticks)
  • A cool head when the going gets tough

Still with us? Great. Then get in touch and we’ll get things moving as quickly as one of our lunchtime shifts. You must be eligible to work in the UK.
