Sous Chef

Permanent
40 hours per week

The Royal Horseguards is a stunning 5 star hotel overlooking the River Thames, close to The Embankment and Trafalgar Square. The hotel has 282 bedrooms, restaurant, bar and terrace area as well as exceptional banqueting facilities at one of London's most prestigious conference and banqueting venues, One Whitehall Place. An exciting time to join our team, we are embarking on a multi million pound refurbishment across all areas of our beautiful property, including our bedrooms, public areas, events spaces, restaurant and bar, which will enhance and showcase the unique history of The Royal Horseguards, while providing elegant spaces and amplified service.

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

With previous Senior Chef de Partie or Sous Chef experience, you will be capable of planning workloads, managing a diverse team, dealing with multiple priorities and above all, passionate about food. A talented individual who is capable of operating at a high volume business
