Fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic and well-organised Head Chef to be part of the renowned Parker?s Tavern restaurant and to help continue to shape it as the ?go to? destination in Cambridge.

Parker?s Tavern is a high end, quintessentially British restaurant & bar opened in 2018 by award winning chef Tristan Welch within the iconic University Arms in the centre of Cambridge. With menus that are fuss-free but delicious, beautifully presented and made with locally sourced, seasonal produce, the restaurant is buzzing from morning ?til night but we value work-life balance which is why we offer straight shifts of 42.5 hours per week with two consecutive days off.

You will be totally customer focused by consistently delivering excellent customer service with an informed, friendly and effective approach.

You will be able to take control and ownership for the management of the kitchen department within the overall policies and controls established by the company, Chef Director and hotel General Manager, ensuring that the values and standards are delivered and budgeted profitability achieved.

As an already experienced Head Chef, you will be ambitious to drive your career and create great quality British food. You will lead a brigade that is large enough for you to test yourself, but that will still feel like a tight-knit team. You will also be working in a stunning venue including brand new kitchens & equipment.

Working under Tristan?s stewardship will help develop your technical skills as well as your creativity.
Overall this is an excellent opportunity for you to make your mark in an establishment that is becoming renowned for quality, innovation and a sense of enjoyment.
