Why We Need You

From three-course dinners to the perfect scrambled eggs, we need chefs who are ready for a diverse set of dishes. 

Two days are never the same when you’re a Commis Chef Apprentice with us. One guest might crave the ideal beef Wellington; another might yearn for a fresh plate of mochi. One evening, we’ll serve an indulgent meal for a single guest; the next, a 400-person banquet.

Because our menus are designed around so many palates and plates, we have a huge variety of skills under one roof. Who wouldn’t want to learn to make labneh from our dedicated Middle Eastern chef? Or to bake the perfect scone? And the best part: if you have a signature dish – a traditional recipe from your hometown, perhaps – it could even end up on our menu.

Your duties will include:

  • To work under the direction of the Executive Head Chef and the Sous Chefs
  • To ensure that the uniform provided is kept clean, presentable and in good condition, ensuring that personal appearance and hygiene standards are an example for the team
  • To compile the daily mise en place
  • To ensure that all food is cooked and presented to excellent quality as devised by the Executive Chef
  • To promote effective teamwork
  • To cook all food items as requested, serving as expected
  • To receive, prepare and cook any orders
  • To clean and maintain all kitchen areas, including equipment and tools to Safe and Sound standards
  • To report any potential health or hygiene hazards
  • To ensure the proper handling of all food items in accordance with health & hygiene procedures as devised by MOHG
  • To ensure efficient stock rotation for any foods produced

It’s another world. A world of oriental luxury and the most attentive service. A world that’s all about our guests.

It’s also a world that’s been rein
