The job...

As a kitchen manager, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the kitchen.

Your number-one priority will be making sure that our customers receive hot, tasty food, within our 10-minute service aim. You will work with the team to ensure that the kitchen is well stocked, prepared and ready to go - on every shift. You`ll need to be super organised for our busy club nights too - that`s Curry Club, Steak Club and Sunday Club!

You`ll also have overall responsibility for maintaining the high standards of the kitchen, by ensuring, at all times, that it is clean and hygienic and that, most importantly, equipment is well maintained and safe.

Of course, there`s a great deal more that you`ll be expected to do, such as training and supporting the team, dealing with office administration, controlling stock and receiving deliveries, among many other things. Don`t worry, though, since we`re just as passionate about our people: as long as you have the drive and commitment, we will train you, on every aspect of the job, through our award-winning training programme.

Some key strengths which you must have...

At Wetherspoon, we`ve found that there are some key strengths which you must have to become a successful manager. To succeed, you will need to be a customer-focused, driven, committed, passionate (like us!), professional team player.

Does this sound like you? Well, we want you to be a part of it! So, why not apply today and join the Wetherspoon team for a long and rewarding career?
