Founded by Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr on leaving the National Theatre after 12 years, The Bridge focuses on the commissioning and production of new shows, as well as staging the occasional classic.
The new 900-seat adaptable auditorium is designed to answer the needs of contemporary audiences and theatre-makers and is capable of responding to shows with different formats (end-stage, thrust-stage and promenade). It is the first wholly new theatre of scale to be added to London’s commercial theatre sector in 80 years.
We are hugely excited to be working with iconic London restaurant St. JOHN to provide our food and drink offering in our beautiful foyer. Our café-bar is central to the daily life of our working theatre, providing sustenance to theatregoers as well as those who work around and pass through Potter’s Field and the vibrant river area.
You will report to the Food and Beverage Manager, and work closely with the renowned team at St JOHN Restaurant to deliver our daily menu. All our baked goods are made locally at the St. JOHN bakery, just around the corner from The Bridge Theatre in Bermondsey.
Your role will be to manage the kitchen operation and inspire our very small team of chefs to deliver beautiful, fresh and tasty small plates of food and snacks from breakfast through to evening performances.
The role would suit a Kitchen Manager who has previous experience of running a production or retail kitchen within a high-end high-street brand or perhaps someone from a leading café, restaurant or hotel.
We offer our staff a 25% staff discount on food and drinks on the Theatre and cost price on all wine for t/a. and St John Restaurant staff discount : 50% off Monday-Wednesday, 25% off Thursday-Sunday, t/a price on all wine drunk in the restaurants.
