As our busy summer continues turning into a packed Events calendar, we are looking to strengthen our Kitchen Brigade and are looking for a Chef Patissier at the top of their game, to join our highly successful team at The Grand Hotel, Brighton.

The Grand is at the centre of a thousand tales, the location of a million memories and a champion for all things Brighton & Hove.

We’re progressive, independent, and free-spirited – it’s just the fabric of the building that’s historic, not our approach to business! If you’re looking for the #bestplacetowork, look no further!

Intent and passionate to create an unforgettable experience for our diners, we are looking for a Chef Patissier to create mouth-watering experiences – in this hands-on role, you will have freedom and autonomy to make this your own!
