Serve your experience and enthusiasm on the front line of a world-class kitchen

At Whitbread, we know great talent when we see it. That’s why we take great care to invest in our kitchens and make sure our teams feel valued. Our chefs are some of the most fun, hardworking and diverse people you’ll ever meet. But they all have the passion, dedication and the hunger to be the very best they can be. If you’ve got what it takes to turn every meal into a memorable experience, you’ll fit right in. Our top-drawer training team can take care of the rest.

Here, we’ll feed your ambitions by offering some of the best progression opportunities around. If you’re looking to step things up in your career, we run a number of national management development programmes to help you into leadership. This is your chance to really make your mark in the kitchen.  Whether that’s by developing skills for a promotion in our Kitchen Academy, trying something completely new or even challenging yourself in the spotlight of our Kitchens of Excellence. If you think like a Whitbread chef, the options really are endless.
