Commis Chef - Boston Tea Party


Just on the outskirts of the centre of Birmingham, our cafe is a home away from home for a variety of customers. Our team is dynamic and creative, and work hard to provide our customers with the best food, drink and service in Edgbaston. Being a multi-tasker is key to the success of our day to day running and gives variety in your role.

We're looking for a Commis Chef to join our team in Edgbaston.

Our people work at BTP because they share our values of empathy, fairness, curiosity, determination, resourcefulness, positivity & humour. 

As a Commis Chef you will need to demonstrate these values daily by being flexible & working where the café needs you most, to deliver the best experience for our customers as well as great day at work for your team. 

Our Commis Chefs are on a journey to be being a fully-fledged service chef & therefore can work in all areas in the kitchen. They prepare dishes from scratch with our fantastic ingredients and ensure we never compromise on our product quality by ensuring we have the highest cleanliness and food hygiene standards. We are all one big team and you’ll support the Senior Kitchen Team in making sure they have what they need; whether that be working through the prep list or getting stuck in with putting the delivery away. 

Our cafes are brilliant places to be in.  We deliver phenomenal coffee and teas and incredible ethically sourced food, but what really makes us ‘us’, is our people.

This is a great opportunity to get stuck in and learn loads of skills with a company that never tires of trying to improve how we do things for our teams, customers and the communities which we are part of.  After all our purpose is Making Things Better.
