What makes a silver service waiter/waitress a Hero?
The knowledge: Make detail and refinement your best friend. In silver service waitress jobs, you not only know the menu by heart, you know about allergens, about calories, and about the culinary techniques used in creating the dish (so when someone ask you what veloute or en papillote means, you don’t need to refer to know the answer).
The observation: Successful silver service waiters not only know the theory behind a great service; they have the keen eye to put that learning into practice. It is one thing to know that as a skilled silver service waiter or waitress you should crumb the table between courses, serve new wine in a new glass, or replace a linen napkin when a guest leaves the table to use the bathroom – but having the vision and focus to anticipate each of your guests’ needs? That’s what distinguishes a good waiter from a true Staff Hero.
Added extras: Silver service has changed. Of course there’s still a place for classic French fine dining, but often when you work for luxury restaurants in London, you may find that white linen tablecloths and pristine silverware are things of the past, replaced by modern sophistication, and modern expectations. Here, ‘silver service’ is a metaphor for the highest level of service, and that could include putting your wine knowledge to good use, escorting guests to and from the table, managing queries and complaints and more.

Silver service waiter/waitress jobs in London – the Q&A
Can I choose my hours?
Yes, although the events at which you are required will frequently be in an evening or at weekends. So whilst you will have some flexibility over the days you work, you will find more opportunities if your availability coincides with at least some of the week’s peak periods.
Where will I be working?
Our jobs for waitresses and waiters cover the broadest possible definition of silver service and fine dining. You could be part of a silver service team delivering exceptional standards at a major event. You could just as easily be joining an exceptional restaurant with its own, contemporary take on silver service protocols and service standards. The key to maximising your number of shifts, therefore, is knowing silver service inside out, but being able to to adapt your style as the establishment requires.
Are all your jobs for waiters/waitresses temporary?
Staff Heroes is all about opportunities for casual work. We’re here to match skilled Heroes with unconventional or limited availability with restaurants where silver service waiters are needed asap.
That doesn’t mean you won’t get repeat shifts when you do a great job for one of our clients – often you will. And it doesn’t mean you’ll never get the opportunity to turn a temporary job into a permanent job – you might, it’s just not what we’re about.

"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!”Alex Davenport Jones - The Porch House
