The Standard is one of the most culturally engaged hotels in the world. Hotels with real cultural life, an inclusive spirit and true creative attitude. A destination layered with events and amusements that leaves you with an uplifted feeling...
At the cultural heart-beat of The Standard are our team who bring to life our spaces, engage with our guests and vibrate social energy, day and night across our numerous bars, restaurants, event and guest spaces. Here at The Standard, we take a slightly different approach to our people and look far and wide for individuals that bring a unique perspective with them to our team (not a 5 page CV). We do not ask you to conform, read from a script or follow the rules (ok sometimes there are rules) but not when it comes down to you being able to express yourself or celebrate your individuality.
We are defined by our richness of personality, diversity of background and lifestyle and are now looking for a Chef De Partie - Staff Dining who will embody our ‘Anything but Standard’ ethos across all aspects of food production and culinary services within our Staff Canteen.
As a Chef De Partie - Staff Dining, you will work in a small team of 3 Chefs, plus 2 Service Assistants; and be responsible for the full overnight production of food and service of staff meals to our team of over 350 employees. Operating 7 days a week, our Staff Canteen serves over 300 meals a day across 3 dedicated meal periods (Lunch, Dinner and Night service).
You will work closely with the Senior Staff Chef in order to plan and cost menus; and the ongoing development of new dishes for the canteen; with a view to produce a wide variety of staple dishes and ensuring these are balanced with healthy alternatives. This role will ideally suit someone who has been used to producing volume quality dishes, that are suitable to be reheated and finished for service; in addition to being held for a short period on a hot servery.
This is not a ‘Standard’ Chef De Partie position so you will need to have miles and miles of personality and stamina, be highly social, upbeat and friendly; confident and can handle pressure well; thrive in a high volume, high energy environment and able to work equally well both independently and as part of a team.
