Career Opportunities

What options do I have?

The world of restaurants is amazing.

If you like it, that is—it is not for the faint of heart. You need to be able to work with different people, cater to and understand guests, love food, and live with having managers who have high expectations.

As long as the passion and excitement is there, we can teach you the rest.

In return, you will gain a great amount of experience, especially if this is your first job in the restaurant industry.

Our restaurants are split into two sections: food preparation in the back of house (BOH) and guest interaction in the front of house (FOH).

Some of the people who join us are studying. Some dream of becoming a manager at one of our restaurants, and some are saving up to travel around the world.

Whatever your aspirations are we welcome people who want to work hard and have fun.
You will work in an environment, where we often have fishy orders and they come in large numbers. That is why you need to be able to go with the flow with a cheerful attitude. That goes whether you work front of house or back of house.

The Next Level


If you are passionate about training others and love to teach, the position of Senpai might be the right fit for you. ‘Senpai’ means ‘senior’ and as Senpai, your job is to help train new recruits, with the help and feedback of the restaurant’s management. In order to become Senpai, you need to know your way around the floor or the kitchen and be familiar with other positions.

MIT (Manager in Training)

At Sticks’n’Sushi, we are always on the lookout for the best managers out there. We want all our employees to reach their full potential while we offer new and exciting opportunities. If you are dreaming about becoming a manager, we offer leadership and training programmes designed to help you realise your potential as a restaurant or kitchen manager.

Kitchen Trainee

If you are fascinated by the beautiful food produced in our kitchens and interested in learning how to make it yourself, we offer internal education in the form of a Kitchen Trainee position. There are a few prerequisites, but it is an option nonetheless. Kitchen Trainees undergo training in different positions in our kitchens. There is a lot to learn and this is not a position for everyone, as it takes up to two years to complete. Once the training period is over, there is an exam to sit. If you pass that, you become a Line Chef.


In partnership with KEA (Copenhagen School of Design and Technology), we have developed a course designed to allow our managers to get an education while they work for us. Upon completion, the course offers admission to the second part of HD. The course lasts 2½ years and is focused on all the areas that are relevant to our managers.

On-board Abroad

We are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to work abroad. With restaurants in Copenhagen, London, Cambridge, Oxford, and Berlin, we offer opportunities to work in different cities. If you are interested in working at one of our other locations, we are happy to help you on your way.
