Having a close relationship with our suppliers is something we’re hugely proud of here at Jamie’s and we have amazing opportunities throughout the year for family members to visit where our products come from.

We have an amazing Staff Food menu completely free for our team members with great variety and delicious, nutritious dishes which change seasonally
Many of our family members stay with us for a long time and we want to recognise this. We love a good celebration so we have a milestone we will have a little treat for you.

If you smashed it, you scratch it !
In our fast paced world we want to make sure that we have some fun with our thank you’s. If you’ve smashed it your manager may give you a Smash and Scratch card. You could uncover some very cool prizes like a Kindle or a bottle of wine.
Recognition is important for us and we love to reward those family members that go above and beyond in their job. Our Ambassadors of the Month are chosen in each restaurant and given a little something to say thank you for their hard work. Regularly throughout the year some of the ambassadors may be invited to enjoy lunch with Jamie himself !
