Bloomsbury art gallery showing Contemporary Art seeks talented Chef Manager for lunchtime restaurant Tuesday through Friday for the period September 2022 to end July 2023. The Chef will run the restaurant as his/her own business and will pay a nominal rent. S/he will be responsible for lunches for the general public and refreshments for clients who hire space. The Chef may also handle catering outside the restaurant hours for events at the Gallery. It’s a fantastic opportunity to start your own business.

Clients will book refreshments, lunches and evening catering directly with you and you will handle from request to payment within your own business set up. You will be in regular communication with the Events Manager and Front of House Manager. You will actively contribute and participate in a collaborative, respectful working environment within a small team.

The ideal person will have a good Chef or Chef Manager’s background and will possess a great deal of enthusiasm and a real passion for people, service and delicious food.

Possibilities & Opportunities:

  • You can be creative as you decide on the menu.
  • You’ll build up a rewarding relationship with regular clients.
  • As the in-house Chef, you’ll be the preferred and recommended caterer for bigger (evening) events.
  • You’ll be working in a stimulating environment with every two months changing exhibitions.
  • You’ll be part of a kind, small team of colleagues who are always ready to help you out when in need.
  • In the slower months you can run the restaurant on your own, while in the busier months you might want to hire an assistant.

Location: Holborn, London
Start date: 29th August 2022
