A superhero in the kitchen who always strives for perfection in her cooking. Maxine can ensure that a restaurants reputation for food quality is maintained at all times. She is a born leader who relishes taking responsibility for the running of the kitchen, but also knows when and how to delegate. Her key strengths include but are not limited to being ready for anything that a busy shift throws at her team. In her current role she uses state-of-the-art catering equipment to set high standards and ensure dishes are cooked fresh. At work she has a reputation for being a guardian of staff morale so as to keep kitchen workers happy and motivated. During her career she has gained experience of working as a Chef de Partie in a busy hotel and has developed a good understanding of all areas of the kitchen. On a personal level she is not afraid to ask questions or clarify doubts with senior chefs. Right now, she wants to join a company where she will have a chance to work with a group of other professional chefs who have a large bank of knowledge between them.
