My Career
Life Story

Nigel Biggs, Executive Chef.

When I was searching for my first position as head chef after many years of working in busy kitchens, Britannic, which eventually became Phoenix, gave me the chance. Phoenix has been quite simply the best employer I’ve ever had.

The catering trade is notoriously hard work, but they’ve given me so much support and trusted me and my team to deliver high standards of service. It’s a big responsibility keeping the staff happy, but when your employer shows so much faith in you, it’s a great incentive to achieve the very best you can.
