Here at Harrods, we currently house more celebrity chefs, and exclusive dining brands than any other location in the UK. As our Dining Hall Head Chef, you will be joining a passionate, supportive, and award-winning dining team, all within our iconic Knightsbridge store.

About The Role

In this role you will be responsible for leading your teams as Head Chef within our world-class Dining Hall kitchens. You will be responsible for the operation and organisation of the kitchen by setting daily production levels and guidelines as well as delegating to the team. You will demonstrate effective management by flexing between coaching and directive leadership, also building effective relationships with support functions such as Food Halls, Restaurants, Food Safety, Distribution, Store Services and HR.

About You

You’ll have a strong track record of hospitality experience as a Head Chef, ideally with time spent within a high volume environment at a prestigious 5* hotel, or fine-dining AA Rosette/Michelin standard restaurant. Having experience within a grill restaurant and/or great knowledge and passion about meat and breeds of cattle would be highly advantageous. 

In addition to leading your team in The Grill restaurant, you will also be responsible for supporting the other outlets in the Dining Hall where needed.

As the Head Chef, you’ll have great time-management skills, experience working with large kitchen teams and a strong customer focus when dealing with both internal and external parties. You’ll have exceptional communicational and interpersonal skills as you will be interacting with other business areas in your day to day. You’ll ensure good attention to detail, which will be evident through paperwork completed, organisation of department and sufficient stock levels. Having good PC literacy is a must (Word, Excel and preferably SAP).

About Us

As the world’s leading luxury retail emporium, we make the impossible possible, and our hospitality offer is evolving and expanding rapidly across our stores. We are a welcoming and close-knit family who are passionate about food and beverage and aim to craft dining experiences that are the highlight of our customers’ visits.

Our Promise To You

Help us make the impossible possible for our customers and we’ll do something remarkable for you. As well as offering a friendly environment to inspire your best work, we provide abundant opportunities and support to build an exceptional career across the varied specialisms of our business.

In return for your hard work as Head Chef, you’ll learn every aspect of working in a busy, premier kitchen and will receive some great benefits including: competitive salary, sociable working hours, 33 days annual leave (including Bank Holidays), plus your birthday off free, up to 33% in-store discount, generous pension and great learning and development opportunities to help further your career.
