It’s a broad field, catering. You could be part of the event management team, the kitchen brigade or front of house. You could be the waiter/waitress, the kitchen assistant, the chef de partie, or any one of a dozen more roles. But when you apply for catering assistant positions with us, and irrespective of the specific role, there are some things that will always distinguish you as a Staff Hero.


What makes a catering Hero?


Treat temporary like it’s permanent: We’ve all seen the temporary catering team member who is happy to stay in the background, do a solid day’s work, and then disappear. Our Staff Heroes give a little (and often a lot) more than that. Because they choose the shifts that suit them, it’s easy to approach each new role with passion and energy – which also increases the likelihood of being offered more shifts.


Relish the experience: We don’t simply mean enjoy the jobs you do with us – although we certainly hope you do. We mean absorb the experience you’ll gain from working across a variety of catering establishments and kitchen teams. It can be invaluable experience if you are planning to make your career in catering.


‘Ah’, you might say, ‘that’s all very well if I want a permanent career in catering, but this experience is hardly going to benefit me when I qualify as a barrister/economist/surgeon.’ And yet, delivering exceptional customer service, problem solving, building confidence, working with a broad cross-section of the community and delivering projects on time and on budget – they are all transferable skills that can be essential in virtually all careers.

Catering jobs London – the Q&A


Can I choose my hours?

Yes. When a Staff Hero uses our app, the search technology enables them to find a catering job to suit virtually any preferred work pattern. Work as many hours a week you want!


What are the chances I will be invited back for more shifts?

The chances are good, although that does vary from employer to employer. Some of our clients need a temporary worker to cover, for example, a brief period of sick absence or a vacation, so the chances of such a job turning into something more regular may be slim. Other jobs may turn into a repeat commission for the right candidate, and yet more employers may begin with a preference for a part time temporary worker but be open to more.


How do I get paid?

The money you earn from each shift is paid directly into the bank account you save in the app and usually your payment arrives shortly after your shift is over. For our Heroes, that can make a big difference, because it means you don’t have to wait for payment, you don’t have to harangue and hassle your employer for your money, and it means you are not exposed to the risk of carrying large amounts of cash home from your shift.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big

Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group

"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful

Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd

"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!
