commis chef
Explanation:
Since you say that it's a title, it might be a good idea to keep the word commis in the translation

Harraps gives "commis chef"

Le Grand Dictionnaire gives "commis"

The word "commis" is accepted in English in the sense of "junior chef".

Hope this is of some help

Good luck
