Hello friends and readers, I’m looking for a Kitchen/Photo Shoot Assistant to help with food prep for photo shoots, recipe testing/development, and food styling/plating. This position can be full time or part time depending on relevant experience.
I’m looking for someone who is excited about what we do here and wants to help get more of it out there!
PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
– Food Prep for Photo Shoots
This means that you love to go to the grocery store and you’re good at choosing photo-ready ingredients. You love going to a second store if store #1 is out of a crucial ingredient for that day’s shoot. You have an eye for plating and food styling and are great at prepping food at various stages of photo-readyness.
– Recipe Testing and Development
You love to test and re-test recipes until they are perfect. You have relevant cooking experience and love fresh, vegetable-forward food and bright flavors. You love and are able to eat a wide variety of foods and flavors without many dietary restrictions (although all recipes are vegetarian). Ideally, you are familiar with our cooking style and recipes already!
You love to measure when you cook and are diligent with recipe details. Bonus if you have experience with vegan and/or gluten free baking.
While the above are the primary needs, the ability to do the following also help:
– Social Media Tasks
Queuing social media posts, proofreading blog posts, and writing descriptions for social and search engine. No technical heavy lifting – we’ve got Jack for that.
– Light Graphic Design Tasks (a plus but not a requirement)
This means that you can use Photoshop well enough to resize a few photos and Illustrator well enough to put type on a few photos based on a set of preexisting graphic standards.
You must be local to the Chicagoland area. You also need a car to get to the north side of the city and to go to local stores for prop and food prep items. We have a parking spot in an enclosed garage.
This is a paid position based on relevant experience.
