Exciting foodie trips are laid on to reward staff at steak bar and restaurant chain Hawksmoor. They include visits to Billingsgate Fish Market, restaurants in Devon, rare breeds farms in Essex and cheese tasting in Borough Market, London. Staff also visit New York and other UK restaurants.

Ethics are at the heart of the business at Hawksmoor, which has 10 sites in London, Edinburgh, Manchester and New York. The company believes its staff should be free to be themselves, have the backing of their manager and the company, and should be treated fairly and as individuals.

Founded by Will Beckett and Huw Gott in 2006, Hawksmoor is built on its people and believes the secret to its success is employing talented staff who “work hard and are nice to people”, as well as looking after them so they stick around for a long time. People come to build fulfilling careers that offer personal growth and a world-class culture.

The focus is on output, not on place, timings or hours. At head office many people have the flexibility to work when it suits them, where it is convenient for them and in a way that works for them. Hourly-paid staff in the restaurants have flexibility, in terms of when they work and they discuss their rota and work-life balance with managers. Days off and time-in-lieu are offered to all staff.

Quote from the top...
We’ve tried to make Hawksmoor a great place to work since our first restaurant in 2006. As we’ve grown over time what that has meant and how we’ve done it has changed, but the intent has never changed. Fundamentally it comes down to treating people decently and giving them an environment where they feel supported to be themselves and do great work that makes a difference.
