ABOUT THE SEA, THE SEA
We are a fishmonger and seafood bar like no other, now branching into wholesale and product development. Since we launched in Chelsea in 2019, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of seafood sourcing and cooking and now with our new state-of-the-art facility opening in Hackney, we’re looking to grow our team of exceptional people and push even further.
There’s a reason why our core team has remained with us since the start. As a business we kept all our staff on full pay throughout the lockdowns and prospered as a result. We’re looking to grow our team with ambitious, passionate and dedicated professionals who want to build a career in an exciting, cutting edge environment.
WORKING AT THE SEA, THE SEA
We offer strong career progression and the ability to train across different disciplines within the company. We frequently upskill from within - moving and training team members up the hierarchy and into more advanced positions - and all our employees are encouraged to adapt and grow within the business.
We offer full medical insurance for employees and their family as well as discounts on our retail and in our restaurants. As the most exciting and progressive seafood and restaurant business in London, we are a place where out-the-box thinking is encouraged and nurtured. Furthermore we have a strong team ethos where employees are supported from all directions as we work towards our collective goals.
We don’t pidgeon-hole by experience - if you’re passionate about seafood and see a role which looks interesting but perhaps your experience isn’t quite suited, drop us a line anyway and tell us why you want to work with us and how you think your skillset can be applied.
