Part Time

Reporting directly into Head Chef, Ian Moss, we are looking for a gifted and capable kitchen porter.

We are looking for an individual that is as highly-motivated, enthusiastic and as energetic as our Head Chef and his brigade.

Grab your rubber gloves, because the main duties of a kitchen porter are to ensure the kitchen is spic and span.

Chefs such as Michel Roux recognize and celebrate the importance of a good kitchen porter for helping the kitchen run smoothly and that no matter how hot the chef may be, if there are no clean pans nothing is going to get cooked. There is even an annual Kitchen Porter of the Year awards ceremony, to celebrate the vital role they play in a kitchen.

Here's a look at the main duties involved:

  • Ensure basic cleaning jobs are carried out as quickly as possible.
  • Collect and wash up pots and pans.
  • Clean food preparation areas and equipment, in addition to crockery and cutlery.
  • Unload food and equipment deliveries.
  • Keep the storeroom organised.
  • Keep work surfaces, walls and floors clean and sanitized.

In addition to keeping the kitchen sparkling clean, kitchen porters can be involved in food preparation.


Experience is preferred but not necessary.

Odd fellows Hotels are independently run and passionately delivered. Named after the band of misfits that was historically the Odd fellows society, we like our team to be as individual as our hotels.

Our employees are the crux of our business. They go more than the extra mile for our guests and understand that the only way to be great in hospitality, is to deliver with enthusiasm and panache.

In return, we’ll offer you a fun place to work. You’ll become part of the ‘odd’ family and we’ll invest in your training and development and let you play a creative role in the way this exciting business is developing.

Once your application has been screened we will contact you within seven days to arrange an interview. If you have not heard back from us within seven days, please consider your application not successful on this occasion. We do appreciate your interest in Oddfellows Hotels.
