At KOL, part of the MJMK group, we source and celebrate the finest expressions of British ingredients, championing wild food and seasonality to create dishes that reflect the bright, fresh flavours of Mexican cooking. The kitchen team is headed up by Chef Patron Santiago Lastra and was awarded a Michelin star in 2022, followed by being named 23rd in the World’s 50 Best in 2023. Before ingredients and dishes, we invest in the people and producers who trust us to represent their culture and traditions and our team also reflects this. We are so proud of our team at KOL who are passionate, energetic with full of stories to tell. As KOL continues its success, we’re looking for a Restaurant Manager to join the team, who will run the restaurant service, help create magical guest experiences that will captivate our guests and take the lead on developing our team.
