Senior Sous Chef

London, UK

East, central and south of the river – we’ve got it covered, but we couldn’t resist setting up a new home in West London. In December 2022 we opened our fourth London Hoxton in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush and we’re looking for a Senior Sous Chef to bring our brand to life in our newest postcode.
The Hoxton, Shepherd’s Bush has 237 bedrooms of different sizes, a new restaurant concept and terrace, our Hox lobby bar and terrace and The Apartment (our unique meetings & events space).
What’s in it for you…
·        Competitive salary + tronc
·        28 days holidays (inclusive of bank holidays), pension, and life insurance.
·        A health cash plan to claim money back and get access to lots of ways to support your physical & mental wellbeing
·        It’s ok not to be Ok, we have a confidential hotline for any support you require about anything and a network of mental health first aiders
·        Treat yourself once in a while with lots of retail & hospitality perks through our partners
·        Enjoy a free night at The Hoxton and a meal for two when you first start with us
·        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!)
·        Free night at The Hoxton every year and something a little extra £££ when you hit the big milestones!
·        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
·        Regular team get togethers, from our team drinks to our (pretty special!) bi-annual parties – we know how to have a good time!
·        Enhanced family leave for when you’re expanding your family
·        An annual diversity and inclusion calendar of events creating opportunities for you to learn, celebrate and make a positive impact.

What you'll do...
·        Bring delicious menu options to our guests’ tables by overseeing the running of the different sections and running where necessary.
·        Nurture and develop the talent of the kitchen team, creating an environment that brings out the best in them and where they can be themselves
·        Make sure things are running without hitch, orders and deliveries are coming and going as needed, our service is smooth as chipotle butter, and our food hygiene standards are sky-high
·        Work with our Head Chef on ideas and techniques that make our kitchen a creative, ever-changing environment where we’re always looking to make the best food out there
·        In the absence of the Head Chef, you will act in their place to ensure the smooth running of the kitchen.
·        Pay attention to the details to ensure every dish served is as delicious as the one before!

What we're looking for...
·        Previous experience working as part of a kitchen team in a similar sized restaurant
·        Passion for fresh ingredients and strong flavours
·        Individuals. You’re looking for a place where you can be you; no clones in suits here
·        You’re all about having a positive impact on the people you interact with, leaving them with a memorable experience
·        You’re not precious. We leave our egos at the door and help get things done
·        You’re up for doing things differently and trying (almost) everything once
·        If we got stuck in a lift together we’d have a good time and share a few laughs
·        You want to be part of a team that works hard, supports each other and has fun along the way
