Commis Chef

Job Introduction

Do you have a genuine passion for food, with the energy, enthusiasm and commitment to deliver world-class dishes to a multi-cultural client base? Are you looking for your next challenge as a Commis Chef but haven’t quite found what you’re looking for? Intrigued by working somewhere steeped in history with a reputation of innovation, creativity and imagination? 


If the answer to all of these questions is ‘yes,’ then you’re just the kind of person we’re looking for.

Role Responsibility

There’s more to Selfridges than exclusive designer labels. In fact, we have thousands of customers dining at our cafes and restaurants each week. As Commis Chef, you’ll impress with your ability to follow precise instructions, while enjoying sociable store hours and excellent opportunities for career progression.

Supporting the team, you’ll get involved in every aspect of food preparation and service. It’s a great opportunity to gain wide range of experience early on in your career. And whether you’re dressing a salad, rotating stock or cleaning down the kitchen, you’ll always apply the same sharp attention to detail and strive for the very highest standards.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll need to have gained a reasonable amount of experience in a similarly fast-paced kitchen environment. Plenty of initiative and a flexible approach are obviously essential. But at the same time, you’ll need to be comfortable following precise instructions. Most important, however, will be your genuine passion for food, together with the energy, enthusiasm and commitment you bring to the role.
