Ask any of London’s senior chefs and they will tell you much the same thing: they all built their skills and years of know-how in a range of kitchens, learning from talented chefs who helped them hone everything from knife skills to practical kitchen management experience. With Staff Heroes, gaining that breadth of experience has never been easier.  


What makes a commis chef a Hero?


A willingness to learn: One of the great things about finding temporary London chef jobs with Staff Heroes is that, if you’re planning a career in the kitchen, the app can be your strategic ally. So rather than simply using it is a way of finding your next shift, think about the skills you’re looking to build, the cuisines in which you want to work, and the chefs/restaurants/kitchens that appeal most. Being a Staff Hero makes it easier to collect that experience.   


Presentation: It’s about impressing the head chef and the rest of the full time kitchen team. So make sure those whites are clean and that you look like the ideal junior sous chef you plan to be. Keep your station clean, and show your ingredients, your tools and your fellow chefs respect.  


Get stuck in: You may be temporary, but things don’t necessarily have to stay that way. Make a great impression now and, should the opportunity for a junior chef arise on a more permanent basis, you ‘ll put yourself in pole position by showing energy and passion, by looking for work rather than being told what’s next, and by staying engaged and interested.

Commis chef jobs London – the Q&A


Can I choose my hours?

Yes. Bear in mind that as a temporary commis chef in London you will typically need to work split shifts in order to provide the required support to the head chef, so the more flexible you can be the better, but you should be able to find shifts to suit most levels of availability.


Why is it worth taking commis chef jobs on a temporary basis?

There are lots of reasons our Staff Heroes choose to find work with us. For our commis chefs, there are two main reasons: one is the hours, and the opportunity to select shifts that fit with their other responsibilities. The other is the experience. For many London kitchens, the more experience you gain, the greater the chance you become the ideal candidate when you want to secure a full time position.


What will I be cooking?

Our clients offer a range of commis chef jobs, across a broad selection of kitchens and cuisines. If you have a preference for or experience in certain cuisines, or if you want to target your job searches towards fine dining, mass market, big brand or niche independent, you can.

"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!
