Tomasz's story

“I joined PizzaExpress in September 2008 as a Trainee Pizzaiolo in one of our Belfast restaurants. After just a month, I’d been promoted to Pizzaiolo and took a job at our brand new Belfast Victoria Square restaurant in time for the opening.

I then passed my Senior Pizzaiolo assessment 3 months later and, after a year, I moved up once more to Back of House Trainer. Now I’ve applied for – and am hoping to become an Operational Trainer in Belfast.

For me, working at PizzaExpress is all about the great food and people. The atmosphere in our restaurant is fantastic, so I actually really enjoying coming to work!”

Tomasz’s career highlight

“Mine definitely has to be winning PizzaExpress’ annual Pizzaiolo of the Year competition. I loved seeing my pizza invention on the menu – and my face outside and inside all our restaurants. It made me really proud.”
