Career Path

Our Success Stories

We’ll be sure you’re trained and developed and if you want to progress you’ll know how. This is how it happened for Edge, our Regional Kitchen Trainer…

My career with Boston Tea Party started many moons ago, when achieving GP% targets and developing a trusted team were just a distant dream.

Working as a Kitchen Team member when I started and now as a Regional Kitchen Trainer, I have had a challenging yet heavily rewarding career with BTP. I have learnt many new skills along the way and honed many existing ones, all with the support of qualified General Managers a solid Operational team.

With BTP I have worked for and with a rainbow of different characters, each of whom, not only has developed me as a worker but also as a person. It’s the personal qualities of BTP that remain its biggest allure.

Training, development and recognition of high performance have always been areas of interest to me. These areas of work within BTP have always been pushed and supported from within, turning Team Members into experienced chefs on a regular basis. It’s those success stories, amongst others, that excite me about my current role.

We’re always looking for lovely people, especially as we grow. Our current locations can be found in: Bath, Bristol (where HQ is too) Stratford-upon-Avon, Harborne, Birmingham, Edgbaston, Solihull, Worcester, Cheltenham, Chichester, Salisbury, Ringwood, Exeter, Honiton, Barnstaple and Plymouth.
