Head Chef
Marston’s is one of the UK’s largest and most beloved pub chains and today, we operate more than 1,400 pubs, bars and hotels. 

Now, we’re on the lookout for a great Head Chef to manage one of our brilliant kitchen teams!

Have you got what it takes?
As you know, being a Head Chef is demanding but the people make it so much more than just a job. You’ll be as passionate about nurturing your staff as you are about delivering a quality food experience and will thrive off the hustle and bustle of a busy service. What’s more, your ‘lead from the front’ mentality means you’ll set the gold standard for the way things are done, presented and managed in your kitchen.

As a Head Chef you’ll:

  • Care about finding, growing and engaging your team.
  • Be accountable for running all aspects of your kitchen.
  • Be passionate about maintaining the highest standards of food and service.
  • Dream big and think differently about new ways to improve your kitchen.
  • Celebrate and create a buzz when your team is doing well.

Are we right for you?
From cosy locals to bustling pub-restaurants, our Destination businesses serve up an award-winning selection of pub classics and innovative new dishes. What’s more, our impressive drinks portfolio combines well-known brands, like Estrella and Hobgoblin, with outstanding craft ales and beers. Add a dash of our unique Marston’s atmosphere and we have the ingredients to make every visit a fantastic experience for our customers. The same goes for our people and as one of our Head Chefs you’ll find a premium blend of challenge, security and career progression. And whenever you need support or guidance from your General Manager, you’ll find their door is always open.

What you get
At Marston’s we’re one big family. We put our people first, which is why we offer real benefits including:

  • Reliable hours contract
  • Potential to earn bonus
  • Access to our pension scheme
  • Childcare support
  • Award winning training and development

A day in the life...

Hi, I'm Lewis

My induction with Marston’s was tailored so I visited sites that were going to be similar to mine.

I spent time with a ‘buddy’ manager from a nearby site – he was a great guy and really honest and talked to me about the culture of Marston’s as well as the day to day running of the business.

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support.

Dedicated support

My Area Manager, Nigel was really supportive and if he didn’t have the answer he would pull on his network of experts to support, including the recruitment and training teams.

Opening a new build pub

On the opening day there was so many people coming in but I wasn’t worried as I had every type of support there to help it run smoothly. The whole board came down for a meal at my pub, the CEO and the Managing Director are really nice people and down to earth too!
