Sous Chef

Contract Type - Permanent
39 hours per week

Employment Type - Full Time

The Thistle Trafalgar Square Hotel is located on a quiet side street right in the heart of London's West End. All 108 bedrooms at this four-star hotel have been recently refurbished and offer a great standard of comfort and style. In addition, the Royal Trafalgar has a ground floor restaurant which also benefits from a terrace so you can experience al fresco dining in the centre of London.

The Role

We believe in stretching performance by working together as one team. Can you take responsibility for the day-to-day operation of a busy kitchen to ensure that all elements of the food and beverage operation are delivered to a consistently high standard? Can you support the Head Chef with cost and portion control, ordering, team training and development and deal with guest and supplier issues where necessary?

If so then we'd love to hear from you.

Reporting to the Head Chef, you will be responsible for the Kitchen team. You will be expected to deputise for the Head of Department and to show the leadership potential to fill that role in due course.


What we look for

Responsible, Consistent, Reliable Sous Chef.
