We are looking for Head Chefs to be part of our team for the brand new The Hoxton, Southwark, set to open this summer.
The Hoxton, Southwark will be our latest addition to The Hoxton family, and our third in London, only a skip & a hop away from the South Bank. There’ll be something for everyone: 192 rooms, a bustling ground-floor restaurant, bar and terrace, The Apartment (our unique meeting & events space), a stunning roof-top restaurant and bar with indoor and outdoor seating PLUS our brand-new coworking space spread over six floors. It’s going to be quite something!
Come and be part of an opening we’re super excited about!
What you’ll do…
Lead a large, dynamic kitchen team in one of the most exciting hotel openings of 2019
Drive innovation and create a culture of menu development whilst still delivering on the framework of a Hoxton Restaurant menu, with a backbone of simple and classic favourites
Have a firm grip on the costs of the restaurant kitchen, always striving to find efficient solutions whilst maintaining the quality and integrity of the menu
Both guest and team experience will be at the heart of all you do. You’ll lead your team by example, keeping them involved and motivated; helping them feel empowered and supported, confident in providing top Hox experiences for our guests and comfortable turning to you with questions
What we are looking for…
2+ years’ experience in a similar Head Chef role in a busy, bustling environment with freshness and provenance of ingredients as a key priority
Proven track record managing large kitchen teams
A true passion for creativity whilst maintaining the integrity of our brand standards through the dishes on the menu
You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in chef whites here
Passion for hospitality – you’re all about creating memorable experiences for others, be they guests or colleagues
You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get shit done
You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once
You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way
What’s in it for you…
A performance related bonus on top of your salary
20 days holiday (plus bank holidays), pension and life insurance
A health cash plan, through which you can easily claim money back on things like dental, physiotherapy and contact lenses
Take care of your physical & mental wellbeing through a support help line, gym discounts, virtual GP surgeries and more
Treat yourself once in a while with lots of retail & hospitality perks through our partners
Goes without saying, but we’ll feed you during your shift
Excellent discounts across the Ennismore family for you and your nearest and dearest (even if you decide to leave us!)
Lots of opportunity to progress and switch it up as part of a global family of brands
Training to get you settled into your role, learning academies to broaden your skillset and development that helps you think, make and thrive at work
Extra time off to volunteer with one of our partner charities
Access to our Coworking space on evenings & weekends to work on your side-hustle
Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!
