Waiter & waitress part time jobs in London

You love working as part of a team to deliver experiences customers remember. You thrive on the buzz and energy of a busy restaurant. Oh, and working 9-5 really isn’t your thing. Sounds as though you should be looking for jobs as a waitress or waiter…


What makes a waiter or waitress a Hero?

Be willing to learn: Every restaurant has its own service standards and conventions. Every hotel has its own idiosyncrasies – its own ways of making guests feel at home. Often they are the very reason guests return again and again. The more you can soak up, the greater the impression you will make, and the greater the likelihood you will be invited back for shift after shift. If you are considering a career in hospitality, you could find the experience invaluable.

Observation: What is it that separates the good waiter or waitress from the Staff Hero? We would say the ability to really understand what is happening on your tables, so your can respond to your guests’ every need and wish at the right moment. When you know instinctively when a glass needs filling, or you can resolve a spill in a second and still manage to be virtually invisible, then you are a Hero.

The knowledge: A menu is a challenge to test the memory of even a full time member of staff. When you are a temp waiter or waitress, that can become even more of challenge, as you may have to absorb the menus of several restaurants and stay abreast of the changes, specials, allergy information and more. But as a Staff Hero, you can do it.  


Waiter & waitressing jobs London – the Q&A

Can I choose my hours?

Yes. That’s why more and more Heroes are finding waiter and waitressing work in London with us, because you set your availability and employers choose accordingly. Naturally, the wider you can make your pool of potential employers the better, but you should always be able to find shifts, whatever your availability.

When will I get paid?

Another beauty of Staff Heroes is that you don’t have to chase payment (or wait forever to receive it). Most of our Heroes are paid soon after their shift ends.

I’m pretty new to waiter/waitressing. Any tips?

Yes! Ask any of our London waiting Staff Heroes and they’ll tell you the same thing. Wear good shoes – you’ll be spending a lot of time on your feet!


Restaurant jobs with Staff Heroes

In many ways, restaurant jobs are the bedrock of Staff Heroes. It is where we began and since we launched there are countless waiters and waitresses (as well as chefs, kitchen staff and more) who have found work when they have wanted it with us. And they are still doing it every day.

Perhaps more than any other positions we recruit for, it is restaurant roles that are the sector in which we have built our reputation. That’s why we want the very best waiters and waitresses, the Heroes for whom a high standard is the bare minimum, and where the guest experience is everything.

Sound like a perfect match for you? Join the team.

"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!
