Careers

“Parker’s Tavern has been a vision of mine for some time, and I’ve enjoyed being able to create it from the ground up and take care over every detail, from developing the restaurant concept to outfitting the kitchen. But the most important part of any restaurant is the team that runs it, so I’m taking a great deal of care as I build the Parker’s Tavern family.

My vision of a successful working environment is a workplace where staff are open, honest and encouraging to one another. I’m committed to treating my staff well, like family: wages are above the market rate, holiday time is flexible and staff receive 100 per cent of gratuities. Every individual in the team is valued, and feels a sense of ownership over the amazing food we create.

If you have a genuine passion for eating great food, and are enthusiastic about producing great food of your own, then I would love to hear from you. Take a look at the job opportunities below and send me a CV.”
