We are looking for exceptional Kitchen Porters to join us at Harrods, where we currently house more celebrity chefs, and exclusive dining brands than any other location in the UK. You will be joining a passionate, supportive, and successful brigade, all within our iconic Knightsbridge store.

About the Role

As a Kitchen Porter, you will be responsible for the cleanliness of the kitchen ensuring a high standard of hygiene at all times. Working alongside the Chefs, you will have to follow clear instructions and at times show a great sense of initiative to ensure that all agreed standards of cleaning are achieved in a timely manner.

You’ll assist with a variety of different sections in the kitchen. This will include monitoring stock and maintaining daily production levels. Assisting in the collection, storage and distribution of food products and kitchen deliveries will be part of your daily activities as well. This is also a physical role, which will involve heavy lifting and exposure to potentially hazardous chemicals.

You will have the opportunity to learn from a team of highly skilled chefs. You will also get the chance to contribute your own ideas for inventive and mouth-watering new dishes.

You’ll have previous experience as a Kitchen Porter or at a kitchen environment, ideally at a Restaurant or Hotel kitchen. You’ll need to be organised, committed and detail oriented in every task you face.

Our team believe in hard work. We celebrate each other’s success and are always honest with each other. We believe that we can be the best hospitality sector in the world – when we work together we are unstoppable. Our team approachable and efficient – we need someone who shares our values and understands the importance of our place in the business.

Inspired by our past, celebrating our present and focusing on our future, you’ll be joining a team with the belief that anything is possible. What makes you different makes us exceptional.

Our Promise to You
