Why work for us

We’re proud to be a people first business

When you join Giggling Squid you become more than an employee, you become one of the Giggling Family, or a Giggler, as we like to say! At the heart of Giggling Squid are the incredible people. From our skilled chefs, to our welcoming front of house staff, they all share a generosity of spirit that lies behind every great guest experience. We are a family run business and we employ people who share our passion for making our restaurants a great place to both work and visit.

We’re on a mission to serve great tasting Thai food and a truly welcoming experience for our guests no matter how far our tentacles reach across the UK. We started from humble beginnings and it’s a value we still hold dear. We’re about big hearts and small egos! Our Thai culture influences the whole business – we believe in working together in a supportive way, having respect and generosity in everything we do. As our name suggests, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. There’s lots of fun along the way!
