Role Chef

From our infamous JD glaze to our sizzling dishes off the grill, TGI Fridays Chef's are masters at their trade. Your main responsibilities will be to create perfect Fridays dishes that are fit for the family every time.

In 2018, over 1,700 chefs took part in our annual kitchen challenge: Food Fight. The regional winners receive a team party, and the national winners also win personalised pressies and VIP attendance to our annual Legends event.



There are two key reasons why our guests visit Fridays - to eat our bold full on flavours and fresh food and to be entertained. Whether you are storing the food correctly, washing the plates so they shine, cooking the flame grilled 21 day matured steaks, mouth watering marinated ribs and flame grilled to order burgers on the broiler, frying our seasoned, hot, crispy fries, plating the double layered nachos or preparing the creamy mash and seasonal veg to complete the meal - YOU play a huge part in entertaining the guest with food that leaves the window sizzling, crispy, juicy and hot and most importantly looking too good to eat.


You will naturally be:

  • Approachable and able to remain calm under pressure in a busy and often intense environment;
  • Able to work at a fast pace while demonstrating exceptional attention to detail ensuring every legendary dish is perfect;
  • Full of energy and enthusiasm for exceeding guest satisfaction through food excellence and craftsmanship;
  • A team player who is organised and able to multi-task and deliver our unique and extensive menu;
  • In addition you will have an underlying passion for cooking, making sure that the highest possible standards are delivered every time, so that our guests want to come back time and time again;
  • Our chefs are also consistent, reliable, willing to learn and adapt to different ways of working.


We will help you understand:

  • Our service standards;
  • Our theories, heritage and culture;
  • Our tasty dishes, recipe specs and ways of working.
