Full Job Description

Compensation rates available upon request.

The Brooklyn Kitchen is a Radical Cooking School, driven by a mission to teach adults to cook more and have fun doing it. The BkK has evolved over the past 15 years through retail, grocery, in-person and online cooking classes. We are poised to become a franchise network of independently owned and operated cooking school studios, serving communities nationwide with fun, realistic, approachable and tactical home economics for a modern era. Following the past year of lockdowns, we are anticipating a significant interest in unique in-person experiences. 

As a culture, we are suffering from the lack of basic understanding of safe and delicious home cooking. Cooking has been short-cutted and commodified, and our society eats way too much prepared and processed food. Cooking is daily practice in creative problem solving, balancing left-brain technical skill and right-brain creative effort. 

The Brooklyn Kitchen values definition between personal and professional efforts, and strives to maintain balance between them, especially in a remote setting. The Brooklyn Kitchen is committed to teaching from and to a community that is diverse in age, race, religion, culture, economic opportunities and perspectives.  The Brooklyn Kitchen strives to create a culture of curiosity and experimentation, balanced with safety and sustainability.

The Brooklyn Kitchen is seeking a bright, energetic, detail-oriented Administrative Assistant to serve BkK leadership and facilitate rapid growth. The ideal candidate possesses excellent communication skills and the ability to manage multiple platforms. They are smart, curious, confident, and open to new ideas. We value enthusiasm for the subject of food, food justice, and excitement for the opportunity to reach people in their kitchens. 

This position will be remote, with the possibility of transitioning into in-person as the business shifts. The Brooklyn Kitchen is a business that prides itself on inclusivity, transparency, collaboration and smart growth. Through the next phase of our business, we will need to evaluate and develop new communication standards, systems and procedures, and welcome new partners into our offerings.

Responsibilities will include: 

  • Recipe research, transcription and editing
  • Social media management
  • WordPress website editing and general maintenance
  • Customer service
  • Private event sales and coordination
  • Photo and video editing and management
  • Social media asset management and development
