Join the Taco crew

It's about more
just tacos

We're not interested in just filling gaps in our workforce.

We're all about our crew bringing their own flair and personality to each role, and having a good time doing it.

Our team is the close-knit type who get the music boppin’, cruise through the dinner rush in perfect harmony and crack a couple of cold ones together at the end of a long day. We’ve got each other’s back and love to have a good time while dishing out great food and great experiences.

And now? We’re growing and looking for epic humans to join our crew and build careers with us. Think you’ve got the heart and soul to join the crew? Read on...

I started with the company initially with the Grand Opening of Taco Medic Frankton in 2020, just after the first lockdown. When I started I was hired as a line cook and then during the first week was told that, nah mate, you’ll be a grill chef with us, so I did that for 2 months. After that they started cross training me with the other sections and then promoted me to a senior team member, then to a Kitchen Manager. Now I have transitioned to Auckland and am running the one of the newest taquerias in Ponsonby as the Taqueria Manager. Taco Medic is a great place to learn a lot about a business. I can easily related what I do at work to what I studied, and the team culture is fun and energetic!

I started working as a Front of House in the Searle Lane taqueria back in 2018 and absolutely loved getting to connect with customers. Then I learned how to craft all of the tacos and roll tortillas to get a deeper understanding of the operations as a chef. Before my one year anniversary I put my hand up for an open position in the Head Office as the Marketing + Sales Manager which has been my role for the past 3 years now. It’s been such an incredible experience growing in such a fun and visionary environment, every day we’re learning and growing together and just having a bloody good time doing it.
