Head Chef

Are you a Head chef losing sleep? Perhaps you are working in a branded restaurant or high street chain and feeling stressed, fed up of working long hours and not getting any family time?

Join us as a Head Chef and we can help change all that for you!

We know a Head Chef’s time is precious and at David Lloyd Clubs we prioritise our Chefs mental and physical wellbeing which is why we don’t do any split shifts and we don’t do late night finishes (in fact most of our kitchens are closed by 10pm!)

What’s more as a Head Chef with us you will have a range of work perks and benefits that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the industry.

Head Chef Work Perks:

  • Free Club Membership* for you and the family
  • Competitive salary
  • Unlimited 50% staff discount on food and drink
  • Opportunity for advancement and progression
  • Flexible Shift Patterns
  • Club discounts for friends and family

As Head Chef you’ll work with a team of great people and be an integral part of the food development journey we are on right now. Across the UK, we're currently looking for ambitious Lead Chefs with an eye for detail that really know how to cook up great dishes each and every time for our members. We use quality ingredients from approved suppliers and locally sourced where possible. We’ll also listen to you and let you share ideas for menu additions which you feel would work in our clubs through our Chef Forums.

We’re a busy Club, open 7 days a week, so at times you’ll be rushed off your feet, therefore, we need Head Chefs who are up for the challenge and can help us deliver great food consistently throughout the seasons. Most of all, you can enjoy a whole raft of Club benefits including free membership* for you and your family.

As a Head Chef we expect you to lead from the front and motivate, mentor and train your team to be the best that they can be.

What are we looking for in our Head Chefs?

A motivated team player that can remain calm under pressure with excellent attention to detail. An experienced and well-trained catering professional, who understands that a kitchen with flawless food hygiene standards will produce better food. The ideal candidate will have a mixture of branded and independent experience, with a proven track record as Head/Lead Chef.

So, if you want to see it to believe it, check out the video of our Head Chef John, from our Acton Park Club and his passion for food and team spirit. Apply today and do it a better way, do it the David Lloyd Clubs way.


You bring the passion. We bring the purpose. We’re more than a Club. We’re a community. Be a part of it.
