Pho is so much more than a bowl of noodle soup. It’s an obsession – the soul of a nation. A delicious healthy dish that is eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner constantly tailored to suit the individual.
Working at Pho is much the same. It’s more than a job, it’s a career. We take the work as seriously as the pho and we love it. We offer complete training programmes, fantastic pay, bonus schemes, amazing staff parties, lots of pho and incredible opportunities for growth and progression, in the kitchen and on the floor.
Whatever the role you are looking for, join the Pho family and become part of our national obsession and we’ll tailor your career to suit you.View Vacancies
Magda joined Pho as general manager of our Spitalfields restaurant in 2012. As one of our legendary GM’s, she moved on to manage our Soho and Battersea Rise restaurants before making a move to training manager. With a passion for training our people about the “Pho way,” Magda and her team make sure all 600+ members of our company have all the skills and resources they need to do their job, enjoy coming to work and have the potential to progress in their careers.
Lucy started working at Pho Oxford Circus in 2010 as a waitress. By 2011 she had progressed to supervisor for our exciting restaurant opening in Soho and was promoted to assistant manager quickly – all while studying to receive a degree in social work. The flexibility of the job suited her while she was at uni, so she stayed with the team and opened our Spitalfields restaurant as an assistant manager. Within a couple of years she was made opening general manager of our Islington restaurant, and went on to lead the openings of our One New Change and Covent Garden sites. In 2016 Lucy made a move into the Pho head office and as an operations manager she looks after our teams and sites in London, Leicester, Birmingham and Guildford. She also heads up our socially inclusive recruitment programme.
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 27 restaurants, and she runs the kitchen at each of our new restaurant openings across the UK.
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.
Georgina joined our Leeds restaurant (front of house) in 2015 and quickly became a strong member of the team. She showed interest in travelling and helping to open restaurants across the UK with us, so we supported her relocation to Cambridge and then Bristol to assist the openings team. Now permanently in Bristol (after loving opening the restaurant there so much) she is on a fast track training plan to be part of the management team as an assistant manager.
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.
