Benefits – free meals on shift, fresh food concept, excellent development! Are you as passionate about teamwork as you are about food? We’re looking for a Chef de Partie with a little va-va voom.  Say bonjour to a rewarding career at Café Rouge…

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 a talented Chef de Partie CDP 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.

As a Café Rouge Chef de Partie CDP, you’ll be an important member of the Kitchen Brigade and a source of support to your Head Chef and Sous Chef.   Your main responsibility will be to assist the Head Chef in delivering the menu and running all aspects of the kitchen – keeping it a safe, clean and compliant environment. You’ll use your passion and experience to exceed expectations and to showcase Café Rouge’s fantastic food.

The role:

  • Hands on food prep
  • Ensuring food is of the right quality and produced on time
  • Assisting your Head Chef in controlling a budget and managing wastage
  • Ensuring that all standards are met and exceeded
  • Maintaining high standards of quality control, hygiene, and health and safety


You’ll be a talented and ambitious Junior chef with a real team work ethos, 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.
