Be Yourself – Be an Inspiration to Your Team – Be Leonardo 

As a Head Chef, you’ll be keeping your department running like clockwork and leading your team to ensure our guests have an incredible experience with us. Take a deep breath because you’ll be stepping into a busy role! You’ll think creatively to design food menus and items, and be in control of cost management in the Kitchen. You’ll also be nurturing the talent within your Kitchen, showing patience and understanding to all colleagues, and inspiring a vibrant team to exceed our guests’ expectations.  

If you’re our ideal Head Chef, you will: 

  • Be yourself! 
  • Keep the department calm, composed and organised – we don’t let it get too hot  
  • Be a role model for the department to support progression within your team  
  • Be proactive and contribute in the strategic running of the hotel 
  • Show us the money and drive revenue whilst controlling costs, maximising profit for the Kitchen 
  • And above all, be a trendsetter – lead the way!

We look after our colleagues just as well as we look after our guests. Once you’re part of the team, you’re part of the Leonardo community. We have support on tap, so expect top-notch L&D programmes, practical training and clear progression within our vibrant and dynamic team.
