Work With Us

Head Chef

Emma Bridgewater Factory, Stoke-on-Trent

We’re looking for a head chef to join our busy cafe team producing delicious food in the kitchen of the Emma Bridgewater factory in Stoke-on-Trent.

The successful candidate will be responsible for sourcing high-quality food (locally sourced where possible) and preparing simple, tasty home-cooked food including salads, soups, sandwiches, bread and cakes, as well as a hot dish each day for our customers. We have a small kitchen garden and our greenhouses on the roof of the factory are heated by recycled kiln heat, so we’d love to recruit someone interested in using food grown on site.

The role will also involve cooking for events, including setting the menus and catering for between 20 and 200 people.

Experience of cooking in a restaurant or delicatessen and managing a small team in a similar environment is essential for this role, and as a minimum you will have achieved a Basic Food Hygiene certificate.

Your working week will be on a rota of 5 days over 7 and you will additionally be required on occasions to cater for special on site events outside normal working hours.

Please do get in touch if you’re interested in making delicious food, using local sourcing to create a limited seasonal offering with integrity and a real feeling of home cooking.
