The standard-bearer: You will be expected to uphold the standards of the restaurant – and that includes the standards of hygiene and health and safety, as well as the quality of food.

The teacher: As an experienced head chef, people look up to you. It means you have the opportunity – and the responsibility – to develop those around you. It means you are always ready to offer your advice to junior members of the team and share your knowledge and experience.

The leader: You are confident and vocal, ready to step into an unfamiliar kitchen and make your ideas and standards clear to everyone. So from ovens to pass to front of house, everyone knows what is expected of them.

Head Chef jobs in London Q&A

You already have at least six months experience in a head or executive chef role, so you are familiar with the unsociable hours and weekend working – in fact you thrive on it. But the real advantage of finding head chef jobs with Staff Heroes is that you choose the shifts you do and the businesses you work for. So if there are days and times you prefer to avoid, you can.

Some do. You might, for example, need experience with a high street brand or with a specific type of cuisine. With so many opportunities for London head chefs, however, you should find plenty of roles that match your specialisms.

Often, the clients who fill their head chef positions with Staff Heroes start with an urgent need – to cover sickness for example. As they get to know you however, it is common for our Heroes to be booked again and again. In some restaurants, therefore, your role may be purely about maintaining the quality of the food and managing the people creating it. In time, however, and depending on the client, you may also be asked to get involved with menu development, buying, and broader restaurant management issues.
