Commis Chef



Thame, United Kingdom

United Kingdom





Permanent | Full 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 Commis Chef because it pays high wages and is an easy ride. To succeed in this industry, you have to be a foodie; 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 Commis Chef?

  • Preparing, cooking and presenting dishes in your area of responsibility – following specifications to ensure your Head Chef and Sous Chef can quickly send out meals to a high standard
  • Ensuring Chefs stations are well stocked with anything they may need throughout service
  • Supporting your Head Chef and Sous Chef in producing a range of specials that enable you to put your spin on things
  • Supporting the Chefs in the kitchen with collecting and preparing ingredients
  • Ensuring you deliver high standards of food and health and safety regulations – it’s not just our customers we want to make smile!

Is Commis Chef role right for me?

Hopefully by now you can see that we work hard but we laugh hard too. The Commis we’re looking for will have a genuine passion for food and guest experience, a love for creating new things and the ability to keep that chin high through all of the pressure! 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 Commis or if you are a Kitchen Porter with a knack for cooking and all you need is 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?

  • Family and Friends discounts in hotels across the Almarose estate (that'll make you really popular!)
