Byfords kitchen is known for its busy services. A constantly full tab grabber is the norm and the ideal chef would be ready to jump into a busy kitchen and show their skills under pressure.

If you want to prove yourself, this is the kitchen to do it in. The sous chef role over the years has been taken up by some decent chefs and in the words of one well known Norfolk Chef, if you can handle Byfords Kitchen, then you can handle any kitchen.

You will be in charge of the kitchen in the Head Chefs absence. The opportunity to promote and be able to move around the business group once proven can be offered. Previous experience in casual dining is essential.

The Sous Chef role provides a unique opportunity at Byfords to be a part of an ever-growing business
