ABOUT US

Troubadour Theatres is a young and vibrant theatre company who have recently renovated the old fountain studios in Wembley Park, building a 120 seater restaurant to compliment the 2000 seater theatre.

communication skills.

We need a head chef with…

– Previous experience in preparing and serving fresh, high quality food in a fast-paced

environment.

– A thorough understanding of margins, costing and stock control.

– An ability to manage multiple demands on the kitchen, from pre-theatre snacks, to

small events, main dinner service and post-theatre dining.

– The ability to manage staff costs, and create effective rotas.

– An understanding of food hygiene and health and safety compliance.

Above all – you will have a great attitude: you will lead from the front and create a positive
