We know it can be a cliché to say that we always put our guest’s needs at the forefront of what we do – but in this case, you will know that it’s true. Because, YOU will be the one to make this vision a reality each and every day. Sometimes it’s as simple as perfecting a dish from our menu that Jessica orders on her second week working away from home, when home-comfort is exactly what she needs. Or creating a new, delicious, specials dish that makes Syed instantly sit back, relax and forget his journey through torrential rain to our hotel. Either way, you will be making a difference every day you work with us – how many jobs can say that?!
Is this role for me?
You’ll already be an established Chef de Partie or a commis Chef seeking their next challenge. Whilst it would be great if you had experience working in a hotel environment, this isn’t essential, what is important is your outstanding cooking skills gained within a fast-paced environment. You will be creative and have a passion for creating profitable and exciting specials. Most importantly, you will be flexible, adaptable, hardworking and FUN!
What you do:
As a Chef de Partie at Kew Green Hotels you will be responsible for:
• Preparing, cooking and presenting dishes within your speciality
• Managing and developing any commis chefs in your hotel
• Assisting your sous chef and head chef in developing new specials dishes and recreating menus
• Ensuring you and your team deliver high standards of food and meet health and safety regulations
• Monitoring portion and waste control to maintain profit margins.
Our commitment to you:
• Discounts across retail, restaurants, events etc. (because life isn’t just about work)
• Friends and family discounts in hotels across the Kew Green Hotels & Employee discount at other hotels within our brand family
• Free parking
• A free meal when on-shift (that outstanding service works up quite an appetite)
• Competitive holiday entitlement, rewards, development & recognition incentives
