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 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
