Line Cooks

We are now building our kitchen team up and are in search of two capable and excited cooks to join our ranks. 

Father Carpenter is a breakfast & lunch restaurant coming from Australian roots. Over the past decade we have helped forge a strong and robust breakfast culture in Berlin by providing what we like to call 'quality focused comfort food with a twist'. We have our staples that stay on the menu, but change up the food and drink menu as the seasons ebb and flow, delivering and taking away certain ingredients. 

Our team is international & multicultural & accepting of this. We want to create and provide a safe, inclusive but hardworking and progressive workplace. 


  • Prepare and cook to the set standard and restaurant recipes.
  • Maintain a clean and organised kitchen and work area, following all sanitation and safety procedures.
  • Work under guidance of our Head Chef.
  • Develop yourself within the workplace.


  • Be well presented, confident and have a positive attitude.
  • Be passionate about quality food & hospitality.
  • At least 2 years of experience in a similar role in a high volume restaurant.
  • An understanding of Australian cafe culture and breakfast restaurant cooking.
  • A desire to work with a continually changing menu, so a degree of creativity. 
  • Strong knife skills and the ability to work quickly, cleanly and efficiently.
  • Excellent attention to detail and the ability to maintain consistency in food quality and presentation.
  • A positive attitude and strong work ethic, with the ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills, with the ability to work as part of a team.
  • Availability to work flexible hours, including early starts, weekends and public holidays.

What we offer

  • An organised and structured, mature workplace operated with systems. Our days of chaos are long gone and we work with a systematic approach to everything. 
  • Daytime work, completely free of nights, and two consecutive days off. 
  • A workplace conducive to great tips, shared equally. We have invested in the business and have created a space that induces tipping, and staff receive weekly sums.
