Job Description

Our 85 bed Premier Inn in Colchester currently has an opportunity for a Head Chef to join and run a 75-seater restaurant.  We are situated by the river side and are very busy during the week with business guests which then turn into leisure guests by the weekends due to the local attractions such as Colchester Castle and Colchester Zoo.  We are looking for someone who can lead a team of three to provide great food for our guests, manage F&B stock as well as ensure the highest hygiene standards are maintained.

You will be a role model for the team, engaging and leading them to achieve fantastic quality food on time, every time; striving for excellence.  Training, coaching and developing the team is an important part of the job as is developing a culture of continuous improvement, which in turn will optimise kitchen productivity.

Our ideal candidate will have experience of preparing food to specification and brand standards, show a real interest and determination to deliver great guest experiences and be customer driven.

At award-winning Premier Inn, we’re proud to be the UK’s biggest hotel brand. There are three keys to our success: comfy accommodation of real quality, truly affordable prices, and dedicated teams of brilliant people.

As the UK’s largest operator of hotels, restaurants and coffee shops, Whitbread makes everyday experiences special for millions of customers. And creates excellent career opportunities for people like you.

As a Head Chef, you’ll lead the way in making sure all food is prepared safely, cooked perfectly and presented irresistibly. You'll have the expertise to drive an excellent kitchen operation. You’ll bring to the role an impressive dedication to maintaining quality and safety. Add in your talents as a leader and coach, and you’ve got everything it takes to solve problems and keep things running smoothly. Like all of us, you really care about our customers. You’re committed to your colleagues too, and you’ll work hard for them. Crucially, you always strive to be the best in everything you do.

At every venue in the Whitbread family, everyone is welcome. That goes for our customers, and it goes for our people too. Whatever level you start at, we’ll help you reach your full potential. You’ll enjoy the chance to shine every day. And you’ll benefit from the best training and development programmes in the industry.
