Who we’re looking for
You utterly love what you do (to the point of obsession!), you have an eye for detail and love the collaborative nature of a creative working environment. You’re a team player but have an entrepreneurial spirit running through your veins which means you transform an idea or brief into something truly new and innovative.

Holly & Co is the next chapter for Holly Tucker MBE. After founding Notonthehighstreet in 2006, she has decided to do it all over again! Holly & Co is an immersive brand with its aim being to help anyone wanting start or grow a small business. She believes the future is about brands becoming more than just a website, and so she set out to break more glass ceilings and do something completely new.
After spending over a decade successfully online, her next mission is to show how the high street will be saved by clever, immersive, experiential small businesses. After launching in 2017 her first ‘work/shop’ in St Margarets, Twickenham (which is a cafe out the front and offices out the back), she and her partner have now acquired the next door premises to expand the businesses’ offering.
With the aim of becoming one of the top brands to visit on the high street, Holly is now opening a deli, bar, restaurant (Thursday – Sunday), hireable meeting/social space, cookery school for adults and kids, an entrepreneurial school and much more. Everything the brand engages in will be to highlight how ‘small’ brings colour to grey!
So with the launch of the new premises pending, we are on the hunt for a wonderful Head Chef and also an exceptional Work/Shop Manager to join our team. This will be an ideal opportunity for those looking to make their mark in the food/cooking/retail world.
The Role – Head Chef:
An exciting chance to shape Holly & Co’s food offering in its two premises. This Chef would not only make the vast majority of the ‘ready to eat’ food offering of this cafe, deli and evening menu (think small plates) but would also have an opportunity to teach cookery classes to adults and children.
In conjunction with the founders and owners, the Head Chef would be able to design a mouthwatering menu that spans across breakfast to supper. With the ability to create unique cakes, colourful and seasonal salads, designing supper clubs – to name just a few elements of this exciting role. The business supports small businesses and quality produce and so it is an ideal time to be creative and ethical.
This is a new concept so it would be ideal for anyone who is looking to make their mark on the world, but is also adaptable and has an entrepreneurial spirit. They would need to be able to take direction, work with the small but talented team and drive the business to hit Holly’s vision.
Happy to consider confident and capable cooks who have had previous kitchen experience. The ideal candidate will be someone who enjoys using fresh, seasonal produce and who likes to be creative when menu planning, a team player and leader. The role will also include occasionally serving and dealing with the customer, so it is important for the candidate to be adaptable with good communication skills.
We’d love to know why you’d make an ideal teammate, for a business that prides itself on having a ‘work-family’.
