About Ego

Ego are a family of Mediterranean inspired Pubs & Restaurants across the UK. We serve fantastic quality Mediterranean food, delivering great value and personable service in a mixture of city centre restaurants, community focused pubs and destination suburban pubs.

Every Ego restaurant or pub has its own individual character and style. Our team are entrepreneurial in spirit and individual in our actions. We behave like an independent with the ‘power’ and ‘opportunities’ of a fast-growing brand.

At the core of our business is our focus on people and development. We are proud to be officially recognised as one of the Top Employers in the hospitality sector with a staff retention figure way beyond that of the industry average. Both our people and our venues are warm, upbeat, personable and generous.

What you will do

Our kitchens are at the heart of our restaurants, and we require dynamic, committed and inspirational leaders to run them and ensure our guests receive the exceptional dining experience we are known for. Working alongside the Head Chef you will be responsible for assisting with the entire kitchen operation, helping develop the team, and assuming control in the absence of the Head Chef.

We are looking for driven, dedicated individuals with a passion to succeed and the ambition to be the next Head Chef. You must lead by example, be adept at working under pressure, communicate well and be able to motivate your team to achieve our goals and uphold our values and culture. You must have experience with ordering, stock control & labour management. Hygiene will be of major importance to you & you should be able to adhere to our strict food safety policy. It goes without saying that being a team player is paramount.

What you will get

We’re proud to have been recognised as one of the best employers in the hospitality industry by The Caterer. There has never been a more exciting time to join our company and come on our journey. Everyone that works at Ego can enjoy:
