Who we are and what we do

We're YO! Sushi - we're all about fast and fresh Japanese food, served up daily in a cool Tokyo-style conveyor-belt restaurant. We're all about our people, too, and we're dedicated to looking after them. As part of our team you'll get real responsibility from the start, taking centre stage as team leader and master of ceremonies for your YO! Sushi restaurant.

Who we're looking for

Restaurant experience is important to us, but you don't need to be a sushi expert yet - we'll give you training so you can learn more about the world of Asian cuisine. What's really important is that you have a passion for people - both the individuals in your team, who you'll coach and develop, and the people who visit our restaurants. You'll take pleasure in making sure all guests receive top-notch, feel-good customer service, from first greeting to a warm see you next time. You also need to be passionate about running a business, with a sixth sense for profitability, maestro-level multi-tasking skills and the nous to make sound calls on business decisions.

Our general managers keep their teams motivated and our customers happy, but at YO! Sushi we go way beyond that. With us, it's all about development. Put your heart and soul into nurturing, mentoring and developing each member of your team, and you'll get that energy back ten-fold from us when it comes to training opportunities, new skills, and chances to take on new responsibilities.
