Job description

 

We are looking for a talented and passionate Commis Chef to join a fantastic team at the one Michelin Star Restaurant, Céleste. A sensational Michelin-starred dining experience on the top of Knightsbridge, with Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace on its doorstep, Céleste at The Lanesborough offers exquisitely prepared dishes that combine French creativity and finesse with exceptional English flavours and ingredients. The setting at Céleste is superb – a richly decorated dining room, naturally illuminated during day by a domed glass roof, whilst seductively aglow under the softly lit chandeliers in the evening. It is a scene that transforms constantly throughout the day. As the light changes, so do the guests; from breakfast time to lunch to afternoon tea and dinner, it’s a beautiful and fascinating spectacle.

As Commis Chef, you will be supporting the production and mise en place of an excellent food offering, being able to adapt when necessary based on guests' requirements. Flexibility is required to be involved in different sections and take a pro-active approach in developing your knowledge in all areas. The Commis Chef will be part of a professional team with a focus on service delivery and execution of a Michelin level menu that is fundamentally French, modern and tinged with international influences.

  • Enhanced Pension Scheme
  • Life Assurance
  • Dental and Optical Benefits
  • Season Ticket Loan
