We are looking for a New Head Chef to join our amazing team in East London at Custom House by the ExCel Centre.

About the position

We are all about our team and looking for the right people who thrive around other people. Our Tapas Chefs make all of our dishes from scratch in our kitchen and whilst experience of Spanish Tapas is certainly useful it is not required. If you have a love of great food and enjoy working in a team in a friendly environment we will be happy to show you how we make our tapas.

Our Head Chef leads and controls the kitchen including responsibility with the rest of the team for safety, cleanliness and of course ensuring our food is always of the very best quality and made following authentic receipes so it tastes just as good or if not better than in Spain. Naturally in these demanding times there is a real focus on margin and ensuring we are profitable also.

Our Head Chef works closely with our General Manager and 'El Jefe' and we are looking for an individual who really loves working in a team and is happy to share knowledge and lead by example.
