Breakfast Chef

We’re looking for a Breakfast Chef at our Oxfordshire location. Reporting to our Head Chef, Leon Smith  you will be responsible to support our day to day kitchen operation, providing great food in a friendly environment, supporting the kitchen and restaurant team to deliver great hospitality.

About us:

We’re a small but rapidly expanding group of fun and friendly places to eat, drink and sleep with a focus on great design, food and service. We currently have boutique hotels in London, Brighton, Cornwall and Oxfordshire, each uniquely designed to fit with their surroundings, featuring bars and restaurants that are popular with hotel guests and locals alike.

Our Oxfordshire hotel:

Artist Residence Oxfordshire is an eccentrically English take on the traditional inn, with 5 bedrooms tucked away in the eaves. Featuring individually decorated bedrooms with original exposed beams, big comfy beds and luxe bathrooms, as well as a cosy pub and restaurant, Mr Hanbury’s Mason Arms, just a short walk down the stairs. We like to think we provide a home away from home for our guests, with friendly, down-to-earth service, great food and drink and a fun atmosphere.

Our food & drink:

Our head chef, Leon Smith, is all about rummaging through nature’s larder, with a passion for sourcing the very best local produce from our surroundings, using veggies from the garden, eggs from our very own hens, and ingredients from within 25 miles wherever possible. His menu is an inventive take on British classics, and an ode to the Oxfordshire countryside, all helped along by a varied selection of local ales, fine wines and classic cocktails served with a seasonal British twist.

The Role:

  • Preparing, cooking and presenting dishes
  • Managing and training any commis working with you
  • Helping the other team members to develop new dishes and menus
  • Ensuring you and your team have high standards of food hygiene and follow the rules of health and safety
  • Monitoring portion and waste control to maintain profit margins

We Want You If

  • You are passionate about food and making connections with new people.
  • You have lots of personality, character, charm and you are a people person
  • You enjoy working in a creative and fun environment
  • You are flexible: you don’t care for the 9 to 5 life and aren’t afraid to jump into work at any moment.
  • You desire to make a difference to others.
  • Your glass is half full, always.
  • If we get stuck in a lift with you, we’ll become friends

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who wishes to develop their career in a fast paced, high profile brand.

In return, expect a great salary with competitive benefits and career growth. Please apply and tell us why you want to join the Artist Residence Family!
