Careers

We pride ourselves on not being a corporate chain. We’re a family-run business, and we want this to shine through in everything we do – from the food we cook fresh daily in each restaurant, to the teams we employ and train, to the way we greet and engage with our customers.

We don’t employ robots, and we encourage our staff to be themselves at work, so they can feel happy, relaxed and give our customers the best possible Pho experience when they dine with us.

If you think like you’d be a good fit for Pho, you can read more about our benefits and explore our vacancies below.

Pho Legends

  • Fran
    Operations Manager

    Fran joined the Pho team in 2011 as a part time waitress in our Spitalfields restaurant. While also getting her degree at uni, she found that the schedule of working in hospitality worked well for her. She was young and hungry, so we promoted her to supervisor, then assistant manager and then she eventually become the general manager of one of our busiest restaurants in London. After running Pho Spitalfields for over a year, Fran joined the operations team in our head office as an operations manager.

  • Muthu
    Head Chef, Pho St. Paul's

    Muthu started as a kitchen porter at Pho and now he is one of our amazing head chefs. He quickly progressed from KP to line chef (in just 6 months!) and spent a couple of years in our kitchens training to become a head chef. He is now running the kitchen in our largest London restaurant (in One New Change @ St Paul’s Cathedral) and helps to induct and train many of our new kitchen staff across the company.

  • Max
    General Manager (Openings Team)

    With about a decade in the hospitality industry under his belt, Max joined Pho as General Manager of our St Paul’s restaurant. He went on to manage both our Soho and Battersea sites before joining the openings team (after just two years at Pho) as GM, and now he travels around the country to help us grow.

  • Joss
    Assistant Manager

    Joss is a Pho OG. She started with us 11 years ago as a waitress before moving her way up to ‘head of servers,’ then to supervisor, and now she is an Assistant Manager. She has worked in and managed most of our London restaurants in her time, including St Paul’s, Covent Garden, Chiswick, Balham and Islington.

  • Jit
    Head of Kitchens

    Jit is the queen of our kitchens. She joined Pho as a head chef in Pho Oxford Circus in 2009 and then quickly made it through the ranks to head up the kitchen opening team in our Spitalfields restaurant. Only a couple of years later, having worked in every single one of our kitchens at some point, she was promoted to senior head chef of the company. Jit is now in charge of our food development and all of the kitchen staff across our 30 restaurants, and she runs the kitchen at each of our new restaurant openings across the UK.

  • Kiki
    Server / Tik Tok Guru

    Kiki is a part time server in our Guildford restaurant. She juggles working at Pho with being a student, and recently became one of our Tik Tok Content Creators.
