Sous Chef - Portobello Road, London
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.
If you're a team leader, you love cooking at home for family and friends, or hosting the summer BBQ from the grill, then joining Honest Burgers as a Sous Chef could be the perfect job for you.
You'll be a pioneer in 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. Sous Chefs manage successful kitchen audits, team training, stock management and are the heartbeat of the kitchen during peak shifts.
We all put in 100% effort on shift. If you only put in 90%, then your teammate needs to put in 110%.
Our restaurants are busiest during the evening and weekends, so more times than not, that's when we need our kitchen leaders to work.
