Giggling Squid was born in 2009 from a determination to do things differently. To be one of a kind. We now have a few more restaurants under our belt (19 to date!) and have been named in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 (2015 & 2016) for good reason but the important stuff hasn’t changed. We’re still as hungry as ever to give our guests a truly unique experience based around staggeringly good food cooked by master Thai chefs.
As a family run restaurant group, getting the right people couldn’t be more important to us. We’re looking for big smiles, small egos and people who want to go above and beyond the norm. We’re interested in extraordinary, not ordinary. In return, we take care of our people. We’re very committed to training, development and giving our teams the skill-set they need to give our guests the unique Giggling Squid experience.
Front of house
Every member of our Front of House Team is the face of Giggling Squid. Your main priority is to love what you do and show that enjoyment to our guests! Nothing beats a vibrant, buzzy restaurant and you can’t achieve that warm glowing environment without being constantly amongst your guests. You will be providing end to end service so you will need to be professional but flexible, with bags of enthusiasm and energy.
We’re constantly on the look-out for leaders. People who have the ability to inspire, share knowledge and rally around teams. Not much then!
Our General Managers take ownership of the day to day running of our Giggling Squids but are also happy to roll up their sleeves and take a hands on approach to service. You’re here to help turn a meal into a truly unique Giggling experience. We think there’s no better way of doing that than having front-line experience of your guests.
You will also need to create a fun working environment for your team, keep a cool head under pressure, be approachable and commercially aware. In return, we’ll give you the opportunity to really make the restaurant your own.
