We strive to maintain a happy, dedicated working environment and to give people good reason to remain with us for a long time. However, talented people like to move and learn. At any time, we are usually aware of who will be moving next and when, even if this is months off in the future.

For this reason, we would love to hear from you if you are interested in working in Paradiso, either as a chef or as part of the dining room team, even when there are no current vacancies posted. Write to with the subject title of ‘careers’, including all relevant information such as previous experience, availability etc.


For working chefs or student chefs who would like to learn about the Paradiso style of cooking in a hands-on way, we now have a work experience or ‘stagiere’ scheme in place. We are also able to provide on-site accommodation for out-of-town chefs/students. Minimum period is two weeks, though experience suggests that three to six is best, and the max depends on availability and suitability.

Because of the size of the kitchen, and to ensure the experience is a rewarding one all round, we can only take one such chef at a time, so opportunities are limited and we try our best to allocate periods to those who are most likely to benefit from the experience.

If you are interested, write to with the subject title of ‘work experience’, giving short details of your previous experience or culinary education, when you would best like to be here and for how long.
