    Good Day Everybody,

    Petersham Nurseries is a place of calm where you can reconnect with nature, restoring a sense of balance and space. By celebrating aspects of the home, garden and food, we offer a destination that encourages you to step back and embrace a lifestyle of positive living.

    A lifestyle destination that inspires, celebrates and shares exceptional knowledge and creativity, it has naturally evolved into a thriving business. In turn, we have established a culture and raised a ‘Petersham’ family of like-minded individuals who share their lifelong passion for organic gardening, culinary excellence, ethical and sustainable sourcing, as well as drawing out beauty in the simplest of things.

    Petersham Nurseries brings nature and elegance to the heart of Covent Garden with an unparalleled lifestyle destination that captures the unique spirit and rare beauty of its original site in Richmond. Floral Court, a central courtyard is being transformed into an inspirational haven occupying 16,000 sq.ft, including a lifestyle home and garden shop, a delicatessen, wine cellar and florist and later this year two restaurants.

    Whilst maintaining our passion for simplicity, flora, fauna and responsibly sourced produce, we have created an unrivalled setting within this urban environment.

    Petersham Nurseries are looking for a passionate, creative and ambitious Chefs de Partie to join our growing team. We are passionate about food, sustainability all that comes with it. This role will suit a candidate with a strong background, preferably from a Michelin Star, 3 Rosette or 5 Star hotel background, but more importantly, we are looking for candidates that are keen to keep learning and developing their knowledge.
