Current Vacancies

We are currently looking for talented interested individuals to join our Kitchen Team at Leeds.
This isn’t your average kitchen job and you don’t need to know technical cooking techniques – what’s most important if product and the care and attention you give it.
We spend a lot of time getting the best tasting ingredients on our menu – we only do two things and we think we do them pretty bloody well – Charcuterie and Cheese.
They are carefully and lovingly produced then carefully stored by our suppliers. At Friends of Ham we have certain ways of storing and serving our produce meaning our charcuterie and cheese in the best possible way.
This isn’t your average kitchen job and you don’t need to know technical cooking terms – full and part time positions are available.
Passion and a willingness to learn are the most important traits we are looking for. You must be a hardworking, reliable, trustworthy, mature individual who will go the extra mile, happily chat to customers, take the initiative and will always find something for yourself to do.
Previous kitchen experience is a definite plus and a yearning to come up with new dish ideas and specials would be a real perk – we love getting the kitchen team involved in menu development.
Supervisor/Management levels do need experience and must have managed busy shifts, managed a team, and are up to scratch with recent food hygiene and allergy paperwork requirements.
You must be presentable and happy to be customer facing – this is an open kitchen where we expect you to serve the customers sat on our Ham Bar. The big benefit of this is you are in a kitchen with natural light that is in the thick of our service, not tucked away in a stuffy basement somewhere.
If you think our kitchen is for you please email your CV and a covering letter to jobs@friendsofham.com
Trot On!

Even when we’re not actively recruiting, we’re always happy to hear from enthusiastic and talented individuals. If you think you’d be right for a role with us, email your CV and covering letter to jobs@friendsofham.com.
