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.
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.
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.
