Kitchen Assistant

Kitchen assistants wash dishes and clean the kitchen and serving areas in eateries. They play a support role in commercial kitchens and are responsible for keeping things organised and clean so that chefs and cooking staff can do their jobs efficiently. This may involve making sure that all the tools and utensils needed are washed and in the proper places, inspecting prep stations and appliances to make sure they are clean and in order, sanitising and cleaning the kitchen at the end of the day, and storing any unused ingredients. Although kitchen assistants’ main responsibilities revolve around cleaning, they may also help kitchen staff prepare food for serving.
