Lead Customer Host

The Job
Front of house is your oyster! And you’ll make sure our hospitality and customer care is absolutely top-class.

That means setting a brilliant example for the rest of the team – for example, with your brilliant Customer Service skills. You’ll also make sure we’re meeting the demands of legislation as well as Little Chef standards and procedures. On top of all this, you’ll work as Duty Manager across different shifts.

Your skills, qualities and experience
A brilliant communicator. Enthusiasm. Dedication to delivering great service. Bring all this and you won’t necessarily need catering experience to take this first step into management. However, it would be great if you have a basic food hygiene certificate and the ability to cook. If not, don’t worry – there’s plenty of development and training.
