Job Description




Permit Room Oxford

Oxford • Competitive Salary • Full-time

We are thrilled to be named one of the greatest places to work in hospitality. Looking after people is at the heart of what we do, and we strive hard to make living at Dishoom as enjoyable as possible. Since 2010, our restaurants have embraced Irani cafés and Bombay’s entire food and beverage scene. We have outlets in London, Edinburgh, Manchester, and Birmingham, as well as bar-cafés in Brighton and Cambridge. In addition, we offer a variety of kitchens so that our customers can enjoy our meals at home!

In addition to handling busy sites with large teams, we realise the value of doing more. From planting trees with our colleagues in the UK and India to tying Rakhis with our visitors, we are committed to helping feed children through Meal for a Meal. As of January 2024, we had donated 20 million meals (and counting) to children in the United Kingdom and India. As a Dishoomwalle, you will give 55 meals per shift to this cause.

You are a true team player, always looking out for your teammates and leading by example.

You want to be part of a firm that can help you thrive and progress, but most importantly, allow you to achieve what’s essential to you and your happiness.
