Have you got the passion to spice up our kitchen operation? Can you complement your Kitchen Manager perfectly to produce the most mouth-watering recipe for success?

If you're head over heels about prepping, cooking and serving up fantastic food, on spec, on time and spot on every time, then Whitbread is where it's at! Because we make food the hero of our business. And all of our people are the Main Ingredient in making sure that our guests have an experience to remember.

In fact, we call it Serving Up Great Memories. Which for you means ensuring your team is fully trained and up-to-speed. Because you know how hectic a kitchen can get at peak times! So your ability to coach and motivate in real time as well will be vital. And when your KM isn't around, you'll be running the show. Fully responsible for every dish that reaches our diners. Accountable for your own decisions. And showing us your extra hot initiative when things need sorting.

You'll have lots of other responsibilities too. Like signing off your Grill Chefs' and Team Members' skills training. Dealing with suppliers. Keeping accurate kitchen records. Taking charge of the cleaning rotas. Building effective working relationships between BOH and FOH. And, of course, being a hands-on role model as you show them all that it's never rare to ensure a job's well done!

So where are you coming from? Well, you've been chef-ing your clogs off for a while now, maybe in a similar brand name pub/restaurant role or independent establishment. What sets you apart is your hunger to just keep on improving your skills towards a Kitchen Manager role, and beyond. Working with the largest hospitality group in the UK - and winner of the Publican award for the best 51+ site employer - you'll find that the career development opportunities across our Group are as amazing as you are!

So if you're ready to get your teeth into more autonomy and managerial responsibility.
