Why find KP jobs in London with Staff Heroes?

Being a kitchen porter in London is tough. High temperatures. Fast pace. Constant pressure to have the potatoes peeled, the mussels scrubbed, the dishwasher unloaded and deliveries unpacked and stored – fast. But don’t for a second think the job of kitchen porter is a thankless one. Every head chef in London knows the kitchen porter is essential to the slick operation of their kitchen, and here’s how to ensure you are invited back for shift after shift.

What makes a KP a Hero?

Get stuck in: A talented and hardworking kitchen porter is a hugely valuable asset to any hotel or restaurant kitchen. Stay busy. Once you have learned the ropes of your particular kitchen, don’t wait to be asked to tackle the essential jobs that need doing. Look for opportunities to add value, save time and make life easier for your fellow kitchen brigade members.

Join the team: It can be a challenge for temporary kitchen porters to start work in a slick kitchen with a team that works like a well-oiled machine. But building relationships, demonstrating your hardworking attitude, and not taking things personally (always good in a heated environment), can be hugely important in receiving a return invitation.

Have their backs: What differentiates the good kitchen porter in London from the great? Here’s an example: when the commis chef is running late and asks for help, you have the skill and time management skills to get their prep started without compromising your other duties.

Kitchen Porter jobs in London Q&A

Yes. Monday to Friday, weekends, evenings – you choose. Perhaps the greatest advantage of working with Staff Heroes is the availability of shifts that fit around your other job(s), your family commitments or your studies.

That depends. In many instances, yes it will – especially if, for example, the opportunity has only arisen as a result of a period of sickness or holiday cover. For many of our Staff Heroes, temporary is precisely what they want because it fits their lifestyle in a way a full time kitchen porter job never would. Make the right impression, however, and if you want it, you could find your shift invitations become a regular event.

One of the big disadvantages of the typical KP job in London can be getting paid. Asking for payment can be awkward. Waiting for payment can be financially painful. And you may not like the idea of walking home after a shift where you’ve been paid in cash. Staff Heroes removes the risk, delay and frustration from getting paid, ensuring you are paid fast (usually shortly after the end of your shift) and electronically, so you know your money’s secure.
