Why find kitchen assistant jobs in London with Staff Heroes?

The kitchen assistant jobs find you! They’re delivered straight to the app – so you can browse your next opportunity whenever you like. You can work flexible hours as a kitchen assistant in some of London’s top restaurants, hotels and cafes and get paid soon after your shift ends.

What makes a kitchen assistant a Hero?

Be a multitasker: As an experienced kitchen assistant you already know that the role suits someone who can juggle lots of different priorities effectively. The best Heroes do that effortlessly, without needing to be asked. They don’t need to ‘look busy’ because they always are.

Keep learning: For many kitchen assistants, the role is part of a career path towards becoming a chef de partie or head chef. The beauty of the opportunities you will find with Staff Heroes is that you get to work across a broad variety of kitchens and brigades. That means you get to speak to experienced kitchen staff, build experience and develop skills. So take the opportunity to soak up all that knowledge, because it may prove invaluable in the future.

Join the team: Being invited back for more shifts isn’t simply a question of your skills and experience. Often, it’s also a matter of how well you gel with the other members of the brigade. So don’t be a wallflower – make yourself seen and heard (for all the right reasons) and, whilst you may be temporary, treat the opportunity as though you’re full time.

Kitchen Assistant jobs in London Q&A

Yes. Select the part time hours that suit your availability and you should always be able to find opportunities to match your preferences. Bear in mind that many kitchens work split shifts and those in restaurants may have greater availability at weekends. The more you can tailor your availability to the opportunities you are searching, the greater the likelihood you will find the shifts you want.

You are likely to find kitchen assistants working in virtually any commercial kitchen including hotels, restaurants, private clubs, hospitals, care homes, office restaurants and canteens. In each of them the basics of the role will be similar, but you may find a shift in emphasis from employer to employer. In some kitchens, for example, you may spend more time on food preparation than in others, while elsewhere the role may be more about sorting deliveries, keeping the storeroom orderly and organising linen and laundry. Check the details provided by employers and refine your search to ensure opportunities match your skills and preferences.

Often, one of the great frustrations of being a part time, temporary kitchen assistant is uncertainty over pay. You’re often not quite sure when you will be paid, by whom, or how. Staff Heroes removes that uncertainty. You’ll be paid electronically, straight into the account you store in the app – and you’ll usually be paid shortly after your shift has ended.
