Head Chef - Fixed Term Contract - Soho, London

Company Description

Tom & Phil set up Honest Burgers from a tent, serving burgers and chips at parties and festivals. We've now got over 45 restaurants across the UK. We make British beef patties in our very own butchery and rosemary chips that are cut and cooked daily in our chipping room. Every restaurant serves local beers from neighboring breweries, and many of our restaurants serve local burgers using ingredients from nearby food heroes which have been created by the team. Today, Tom & Phil still work shifts, they spend time with our teams, listen to our customers and spend time at the farms.

Our mission is simple. We aim to create Honest experiences and dining memories for our customers and if you like what you read here, then we'd love you to join us.

Job Description

If you're an experienced kitchen leader, you love cooking at home for family and friends, or hosting the summer BBQ from the grill, then joining Honest Burgers as a Head Chef could be the perfect job for you. 

You'll be a pioneer in kitchen leadership, health & safety, and food standards. There's an art to cooking burgers and chips the Honest way. Our burgers come medium-rare as standard, our chips carefully salted with Rosemary salt. It takes skill, attention to detail, and teamwork to perfect it every time. Head Chefs have full accountability for their kitchen, including successful kitchen audits, recruitment, team development and stock management. 

Our restaurants are busiest during the evening and weekends, so more times than not, that's when we need our kitchen leaders to work.

We all give 100% effort whilst you're on shift, if you're only working 90% that means your teammate has to give 110%. 

Learn & Grow

It's in our DNA to give people an opportunity to learn and grow. Your next steps will be stepping into a 'Green Jacket' position where you'll take more responsibility for training new Head Chefs and support other Honest kitchens. 

We also have a programme called Craft Exchange, where you can learn new crafts and get paid for jobs around Honest that you may have an interest in, like sign-writing, gardening or graphic design.
