About the role: 

It's working as a team to achieve exceptional results 

It's having a shared and unique purpose, joining a professional team who deliver extraordinary service. This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different. 

You’ll join a committed Kitchen team who work together to prepare and serve food to the very highest standards. 

By maintaining the kitchen and clear-up areas you'll ensure our chefs have all they need to deliver meals throughout the day. You’ll also on occasion assist with food preparation. 

And whether you’re based in Buckingham Palace or travelling to other locations, you'll ensure all kitchens are presented to the same exceptional standard. 

About you: 

Previous experience is not necessary for this role as training will be provided, but you will be interested in working as part of a professional hospitality operation. 

Most important is that you’re a natural team player, happy to get involved, use initiative and work with your colleagues to achieve a smooth daily service. 

You clearly take care and pride in your work, and so aim to deliver great results in all that you do. 

A good understanding of food hygiene and safety would be beneficial, but it's not necessary, as if you don't have experience in this area, we'll organise training for you. 

Above all, you're keen to develop your skills and gain experience in an exceptional catering environment. 

This role will be based in London, and will involve travelling to other Royal residences. In return you can look forward to working in a unique and stimulating work environment, and be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, including 33 days holiday (inclusive of Bank Holidays), a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility - to increase contributions or draw down as salary) and meals on duty. The role also offers the option to live-in with all meals provided (for which there is a salary adjustment). Training and development is encouraged and you will have access to a range of recreational facilities.
