Galloping Gourmet’s head office is based in south London, but our event venues are spread throughout the UK. With our wedding business rapidly growing and developing nationwide we are always looking to recruit outstanding individuals to help us deliver the very best dining and customer service experience; for those who meet our very high standards and expectations we offer excellent training, competitive rates of pay and a genuine opportunity to shine within a business that recognises, nourishes and rewards the very best talent in the industry.
We host and plan special events across the UK and we’re well aware there’s only one chance for us to get it right. The Galloping Gourmet customer experience requires us to provide first-class customer service from the moment we first meet a client, all the way through the tasting and planning process and then on to the big day itself.
Style, service and excellence is what we sell, and we know that those promises can only be met by our consistently recruiting the very best talent in the industry; by employing the right people we’ll continue to lead the way and stay well ahead of the curve.
We need Galloping Gourmet people to be the very best in the business. We seek to recruit creative talent from both inside and outside our industry. Naturally the right professionals come well-equipped already with useful experience and accreditation and hit the ground running with us. But it doesn’t stop there. Whichever role you fulfil initially we will seek to push you onwards and upwards. We’ll invest in the provision of relevant and inspirational training programmes as well as introducing you to our other operations around the UK and that way significantly ramp up your exposure across a whole range of exciting opportunities that exists within our organisation.
"It's all about giving people the very best day of their lives” Simon Robson, MD
We love winners and we celebrate having plenty of them at Galloping Gourmet.
Our people enjoy access to all manner of fun and rewards either as a direct result of their contribution and success, or sometimes simply because of our desire at GG to seek further inspiration and make our great thing even better. Champagne, Hoxton, New York’s Lower East Side, Kings Cross, Tuscany, a private box at the O2, and lest we forget, a fabulously muddy camp site at the Reading Festival – these are just some of the places we have visited over the last twelve months.
Hayley has had the opportunity to work across a number of Galloping Gourmet venues, growing in her experience and providing exceptional service throughout her time with us.
Industry professionals like Hayley are exactly the type of person we look to recruit and provide continual training opportunities for.
Many of our best permanent staff started work for us on our casual bank, which is also a great place for students to earn extra money and for others of all ages who simply seek a way into the catering business.
We provide valuable training programmes, including our Ambassador scheme, for every worker as well as an outstanding rate of pay. Galloping Gourmet places enormous importance on the likes of Damien, and we’re always seeking bright and impressive people like him to join the ranks and make a difference.
Charlotte recently joined our team based at Bassmead Manor Barns, and as a confident and ambitious individual, she was exactly what we were looking for.
Having delivered exceptional events at the venue, Charlotte quickly progressed from a maternity cover role to a permanent position within Galloping Gourmet.
Adam was already an accomplished and successful Head Chef elsewhere but was keen to bring his skills to Galloping Gourmet. What he craved from his career was more creative and management independence but allied with strong central support and genuinely effective teamwork. He was prepared to take a more junior role and bide his time in order to get his foot in the door.
Great people get on at Galloping Gourmet so it didn’t take him long at all to be offered the chance to take the helm at one of our longest-standing and successful kitchens.
Carly started at Galloping Gourmet with a junior role within what was then a new venue opening at Mythe Barn in Warwickshire. She’s been centre-stage whilst we’ve built a tremendous reputation in a short period of time.
She was promoted to the senior Galloping Gourmet role on site within two years and achieved that by a combination of wit, leadership and innovation. Great people like Carly get on at Galloping Gourmet.
Scott joined GG as a Venue Bar Manager but he quickly made himself a valuable member of our central team and added valuable expertise as we sought to transform our approach to bar staff training.
He’s also brought with him fresh ideas and an alternative ‘take’ on how best to operate – reviewing and adopting successful best practice along the way. Impressive leaders like Scott get to lead at Galloping Gourmet.
Working alongside a venue Head Chef is a tremendous way to increase a skill-set as well as gaining experience first-hand of food and cost-centre management. Galloping Gourmet’s unique set-up means Josh is also within the heart of Team Chef which encourages and enables all our Sous Chefs to have a voice and make a significant contribution.
Josh has access to this plus valuable opportunities to spread his wings and work directly with colleagues at other sites across the UK. At Galloping Gourmet impressive chefs truly can (and do) cook their way up.
