Why find sous chef jobs in London with Staff Heroes?
From £15.93 per hour (inc hol pay)
You know what it takes to be a sous chef. With at least six months’ experience in the role, you know the demands of the job, the energy it requires and the skills you’ll need to employ. But the restaurants and hotels that employ our Staff Heroes are looking for something more. So here’s how to make a strong impression.
What makes a sous chef a Hero?
Instant leader: It’s a tough role even when you know the head chef, chef de partie and the rest of the brigade. But asking a sous chef to join an unfamiliar kitchen, hit the ground running and be the leader our clients need? That’s an even bigger challenge, but it’s one you will relish. Although the specific sous chef role may change from kitchen to kitchen, you can assume there will be a significant kitchen management requirement with all our sous chef opportunities, so you’ll need lots of confidence and authority, and know how to get the best from your team.
Share your knowledge: Even in a temporary role, a strong sous chef should be able and willing to help develop the more junior members of the team. You won’t have to wait to be asked to offer advice, encouragement and inspiration.
Only passionate sous chefs required: Being a temporary sous chef is a challenge, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to work across a broad range of kitchens, cuisines and brigades. Being a success in each of them takes commitment and reliability, but when you make a great impression, you increase your chances of being invited for more shifts.

Chef jobs London – the Q&A
Can I choose my hours?
Yes, although bear in mind that a sous chef is there to help manage the kitchen team, so there is a little less flexibility in the hours for this position than you may find in many of our other opportunities. That said, with such a wide range of kitchens, you should still be able to find plenty to match your availability.
Why would I take on sous chef jobs on a temporary basis?
For our skilled sous chefs, temporary opportunities enable them to pick and choose their jobs, working only when they want to in a way that suits their lifestyle. For our more junior sous chefs, to work across a broad range of kitchens and under a number of head chefs can be fantastic career experience. So when the full time opportunities appear, you have a huge amount to offer.
What will I be cooking?
It really could be anything, so make sure you check the details of each job as they appear on the app to ensure the cuisine is one in which you have experience.

"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
