About Jobs

For the low entry positions jobs in the restaurants, there are two types of positions – Front of the House (FoH) and Back of the House (BoH). 

FoH groups the positions that require interaction with the customers. An open personality and good English skills are a must! Experience in the field is usually very welcomed! 

BoH groups the positions that make the restaurant rolling. We are talking about less customer interaction and more “backstage” work.
