Breakfast Chef - Weekends



Thame, United Kingdom

United Kingdom





Permanent | Part Time

DoubleTree by Hilton Oxford Belfry
DoubleTree by Hilton Oxford Belfry, Milton Common, Thame, Oxfordshire, OX9 9JW

We’re all about people and food. Why else would we be in hospitality?

Here’s to being honest: no one works as a Breakfast Chef because it pays high wages and they get a lay in! To succeed in this industry, not only do you have to be a real foodie, you’ll be a roll-your-sleeves-up, laugh-through-the-tough-times kind of person who thrives, doesn’t melt, under pressure.

What will I be responsible for as a Breakfast Chef?

  • Overall responsibility for the breakfast operations in your kitchen at weekends
  • Setting up for breakfast to give everyone the best start in a calm environment
  • Preparing, cooking and presenting a range of breakfast options – following specifications to ensure everyone has something delicious to set them up for the day
  • Coordinating the team on shift to ensure everything is up to high standards
  • Facilitating unique and special requests from our guests
  • Monitoring portion and waste control in addition to labour productivity to maintain profit margins
  • Ensuring you and your team deliver high standards of food and meet health and safety regulations. 

Is this Breakfast Chef role right for me?

The Breakfast Chef we’re looking for will have a genuine passion for food and guest experience, a love for kick-starting everyone’s day with a warm welcome and delicious breakfast. Being able to keep guests happy and adapt to their needs sometimes means thinking on your feet and that’s why you’ve got to love change – you’ll know as well as we do that no two days in a kitchen are the same!

We don’t mind if you have experience as a Breakfast Chef or if you are a Chef de Partie or Sous Chef looking for someone to take a chance on you. If that’s you and you to read what we’re all about and though: ‘Huh! That’s just like me!’ – Please get in touch!

What’s in it for you?

  • Discounts across retail, restaurants, events etc. (because we know life isn’t just about work)
  • Family and Friends discounts in hotels across the Almarose estate (that'll make you really popular!)
  • Family and Friends discounts in hotels across the Hilton Worldwide estate (even more popular!)
  • Leisure Club/Gym complementary membership
  • Parking on site for free
  • Meals for free on shift – hard work is hungry work!
  • Progression and career development opportunities across the UK, with training and support with course fees
