Do you know a Chef de Partie who is looking for a new opportunity within a great team based in Central London? If so, let them know about One Great George Street’s latest vacancy for a Chef de Partie. Reporting to the Head Chef, this role is ideal for a hard-working individual who is not afraid of a busy working environment and who takes pride in providing a flawless service.

I was honoured to meet HRH The Duke of Kent on Tuesday 7th February 2017 when he visited our innovative accessible entrance lift provider, Sesame Access Systems Ltd. The visit was to celebrate Sesame Access winning The Queens Award for Enterprise in Innovation 2016. The Duke unveiled a specially commissioned plaque to commemorate the visit, and was accompanied by HM Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux.

Christmas Day 2016. I flew to Australia for the first time. My friend and I were hiring a camper-van and driving from Brisbane-Adelaide-Melbourne along the coast. The purpose of the trip…why not? We did have a few criteria for our trip; stop off in Byron Bay, New Year’s Eve in Sydney, ending each day with a beer on a beach, and of course wine tasting!
We are lucky to have an excellent catering team at One Great George Street (one that recently helped us scoop London’s Best Private Dining Venue no less!) but over the last ten years I’ve worked at our Westminster venue I’ve noticed the process of recruiting new catering talent has become longer and longer.
I believe the biggest issue facing catering today is the lack of young people coming into the industry, which is creating a shortfall of skilled labour that is threatening to turn a problem into a crisis.
