At Café rouge we’re proud of our iconic brand and our 26 year heritage.  We pride ourselves on our passion for good food, good wine and brilliant service.  Our restaurants exude atmosphere and charm and so do our people! 

Right now, we have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Head Chef to join the Rouge family.  We’re looking for someone outstanding - someone who believes that the key to success is through our people and that by enhancing the guest experience with outstanding service and food every time, we’ll deliver results.

Our Head Chefs are the heart and soul of our kitchens! As Head Chef, your main responsibility will be to deliver our inspired menus and create delicious dishes that will wow your guests.  Along with hands on cooking, you’ll manage the kitchen standards of health, safety and hygiene and you will know how to control your costs and minimise wastage.  As well as passion, confidence and culinary flair, you’ll have experience of leading a talented brigade - inspiring your team to achieve more.

The role:

  • Hands on food prep
  • Ensuring food is of the right quality and produced on time
  • Managing stock
  • Liaising with suppliers
  • Controlling a budget and managing wastage
  • Recruiting, training and developing your team
  • Managing a talented brigade
  • Ensuring that all standards are met and exceeded
  • Maintaining high standards of quality control, hygiene, and health and safety


You’ll be a great leader with strong communication and influencing skills, you’ll have an approachable manner and a “hands on” attitude. You’ll also have an eye for detail, and the ability to drive standards and exceed guest expectations.  When it comes to producing the best food, you’ll deliver. You’ll have ambition, energy and of course, a love of working with fresh produce!  Above all though, you’ll share our values – you’ll be passionate, confident, caring and trustworthy taking pride in all that you do. 

If you share our big appetite for success, are passionate and ambitious, and if you live and breathe food, hospitality and outstanding service then we want to hear from you!


As a company that's proud of its brilliant people, we believe in the opportunity to recognise and develop brilliant talent.  That's why we offer a number of courses and training programmes to help our stars develop and reach their career potential.  Whether you are just starting out in your career, a Supervisor with big aspirations, an experienced Head Chef or an established high performing Manager with a proven track record – there is a development plan for you.  If this isn’t enough, we offer a whole realm of fantastic benefits and incentives. And because life isn't only about work, we offer excellent annual leave entitlement too.
