What makes a pastry chef a Hero?


Dive in: You are a talented pastry chef – so show it. What may begin as a temporary job could become an excellent opportunity to build your experience, your skills and your career.


Presentation: When a head chef is looking for a pastry chef to join their kitchen team, first impressions really count. So make your whites pristine, show the respect you have for your ingredients, your tools and your fellow chefs; and stay busy. They could all be crucial in ensuring you are invited back for a second shift.


Teach and learn: This may be a temporary pastry chef job in London, but that doesn’t mean you need to treat it like one. For your own benefit, soak up the experience of working in a new kitchen with a new head chef, and when junior chefs would benefit from your experience, be generous with your time and advice.

Pastry chef jobs London – the Q&A


Can I choose my hours?

Yes. Naturally, many experienced pastry chefs in London will have early starts, split shifts and, if you are working in a restaurant, late finishes. That’s not always the case, though. With Staff Heroes you could just as easily find yourself creating exquisite afternoon teas in a boutique independent cafe. So if you want to be an early riser, a weekend pastry chef, or a chef Monday to Friday, you can be.


Would I be better to find a full time pastry chef job?

It depends on your personal situation and the opportunity. In time, you may well wish to work full time as part of a pastry team, or climb the ranks to become a permanent pastry chef de partie. For many of our Staff Heroes, however, they value the variety of experiences they can gain with us. That exposure to many different kitchens (and the differing demands of a range of head pastry chefs) gives them a broader experience, simply.


Where will I be working?

That’s down to your preferences. On the app you will find a wide range of opportunities to join rosette standard hotels, boutique independents, hip cafes or become a temporary pastry chef in fine dining restaurants.

"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!
