Job Description

Would you like to work for a company who put team above all else and pay the Real Living Wage?

Our Senior Sous Chefs (SSC) are a pivotal part of our kitchen teams, working with the Head Chef, Kitchen, Front of House teams and the General Manager to deliver great hospitality and experiences to our guest and the team.

The SC is passionate about their craft and all aspects of Kitchen Management and food experiences. With responsibility for all aspects of the day-to-day Kitchen operation and team, in the absence of the HC the SSC works with their chefs to deliver high quality dishes across the restaurant, functions and other food outlets whilst maintaining a high level of profitability. They are financially aware and have built a relationship with suppliers to ensure the quality of produce is delivered.

Leading from the front, guiding and developing their teams they deliver consistent standards of cleanliness, tidiness and food service as well as an engaged and motivated team. Our SSC's can be found guiding younger members of the team through a new dish, designing menus and daily specials with the Head Chef or running their pass in a wedding.

Skill and experience are necessary to do this job, but more than anything else, we want someone who shares our vision of a hospitality industry that is better and sees themselves being part of the team who can make this happen!

Do you love working in hospitality, but wish it was even better? Yea, us too!

That's why we are striving every day to make hospitality better for everyone; our team, customers, communities, charities and partners. But it takes a team to make an impact, and we want the best of the best people to join us on this mission.

We've already begun the journey, and have started to make hospitality better for our team by;

  • Paying every person the real living wage at a minimum, regardless of age or role.
  • Sharing 10% of our net profits with team who have been with us 12+ months, and basing it on average hours, not pay.
  • Removing zero-hours contracts (people now only get one if they request it).
  • Ensuring there's a Mental Health First Aider in every venue.
  • Facilitating team surveys to get feedback/opinions before we make key decisions.
  • Ensuring that our Team Member of the Month is voted for by the team and not managers.
  • Giving our team a paid day off to volunteer or fundraise for a charity.

It's just the beginning! But a business is only as strong as its people, so we need more amazing, passionate, determined people to help us create real change in our organisation (and industry). In exchange, we're committed to giving you the support, knowledge, development and opportunities you need to be give your very best.
