CAREERS

At BREN, we like to work with people whose DNA matches ours and that of our guests. You come to us for conviviality and delicious food, surrounded by only nice people. Having a drink with good friends and family, dining and talking about the big and small things in life – with sustainable and organic food and drink as your witnesses. At BREN, we press pause for you and awaken your senses with creative dishes and cocktails. Uncomplicated but always surprising and simply delicious. So that you can walk out of the door ‘a little’ later fully recharged. The Belgians call it ‘plezant’, the Danes call it ‘hygge’, we call it BREN.

assistent manager

Your DNA

Taking decisions? Not an issue for you. You are happy to be responsible for day-to-day management. You are sociable, hospitable and a team player. You get the best out of yourself and know how to motivate others to do so too. Thanks to you, everything runs like clockwork. To be honest: actually, we are looking for a kind of superhero (M/F/X). A lifesaver, who turns every obstacle into an opportunity. And someone who possesses that special BREN gene.

Want to join us on this adventure?

In August 2022 we will be opening our doors on Drieharingenstraat in Utrecht. And that is just the beginning. After that, we want to open many more doors – for you too – by making BREN the most highly valued hospitality concept in the Netherlands. With several locations in the country – and who knows where this adventure will take us. Because that is what BREN people love: adventure.

In short: do you think and live like a BREN person and are you ready for something new? Then we would like to meet you. Catering experience is appreciated but not required.

waiter(ess)

Your DNA

You are sociable, hospitable and don’t let things wind you up. Retaining an overall picture is second nature to you – like a hawk you circle around and fly from left to right and back again. You have an eye for detail, can switch gears at lightning speed and are in your element when things are busy around you. Stress? You don’t know the meaning of the word. The more the merrier! You make sure that every guest leaves as happy and relaxed as you are yourself. In short, you possess the BREN gene.

independent chef

Your DNA

Change quickly and keep calm. Work independently and be part of a close-knit team. You can do it all. You like to surround yourself with colleagues who, like you, have a culinary brain – so that you can learn and share your knowledge. Quality is high on your list of priorities, both for the ingredients you use and the presentation on the plates. But at least as important: you like to work with and for epicureans. Are you thinking: yes, that’s me! Then you have the BREN gene.

sous-chef

Your DNA

Chaos in the kitchen is not something you are familiar with. You keep the peace, retain an overall picture and know how to motivate others. You enjoy sharing your knowledge of ingredients and techniques with the rest of the kitchen team and are in your element in the workplace. In addition, you are creative and experiment with flavours: you take the initiative in creating new dishes and polish them until they are worthy of being on the menu. Led by you and the head chef, the brigade ensures that guests can do what they have come to do: enjoy to the last crumb. And all that thanks to the BREN gene.

Your DNA

You are flexible and you don’t talk the talk, you walk the walk. Quickly switching gears and working through a few hours at high speed is not a problem for you, but a plus. You have an eye for detail, help the kitchen brigade with the mise en place and are not afraid of small jobs in between. A bit of a jack-of-all-trades, someone who is up for anything. And perhaps  most important of all: your sociable nature means that you possess the BREN gene.
