Role Responsibility

There is more to Selfridges than exclusive designer labels. In fact, over 20,000 customers dine at our cafés and restaurants each week (that’s a lot of customers!) If you can mirror the exceptional standard of service throughout the store, we can offer you an exciting environment with plenty of variety and loads of opportunities to grow.  

With a vision to reinvent retail, we launched our sustainability strategy, Project Earth, in 2020, with a bold commitment to change the way we shop and the way we do business. Built on three themes – driving a transition to more sustainable materials, exploring new business models, and challenging the mindsets of our partners and customers as well as our own teams – Project Earth is underpinned by our science-based targets as we look to a net-zero future.

With a strong emphasis on elegance, you will be passionate about eating well and championing 'good foods’ as a Waiter at Selfridges. Whether you are serving quintessentially British blends with the Mr Selfridge Afternoon Tea or the freshest Rock Oysters with Selfridges' Selection Rosé Champagne, you'll be professional and strive to consistently deliver an extraordinary customer experience. 

This is your chance to work for a company where customer experience is ingrained throughout its history. Our founder, Harry Gordon Selfridge, famously expressed that ‘a department store should be a social centre, not merely a place for shopping,’ and this could not be truer for Selfridges today.  

The Ideal Candidate

 

  • As a part of the waiting team in one of our restaurants, you’ll demonstrate a keen interest in delivering the world-class standards and customer experience that we are renowned for
  • Your communication skills will be first-class, and you'll enjoy interacting with customers while working as part of a busy team
  • You’ll need good knowledge of fresh foods and organic ingredients, as well as some knowledge of ethical and sustainable farming practices (ideally
  • A positive, can-do attitude is what we love here, and you’ll always be prepared to go above and beyond for our customers

About the Company

Here at Selfridges, everyone is welcome – irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, age or disability, we stand by equal opportunities for all.   

 

Our awards cabinet  

We’re not ones to brag, but since you asked...Selfridges has won the award for The World’s Best Department Store an unprecedented four times at the IGDS awards, with an additional award for the Best Sustainability Campaign. We were also recognised as a ‘Best 25 Big Company to Work For 2020’ as awarded by The Sunday Times.
