In the business of taking care of People

Dishoom-walla wellbeing

We care deeply about your wellbeing and helping you to live your happiest, healthiest life. We know that this means different things for different people, and so at Dishoom, we tend to think of wellbeing in three ways.

Financial:– We offer some of the most generous pay in the industry (every penny of the service charge is shared between the teams at the cafés) and all Dishoom-wallas can access 50% of their salary before payday.

Mental:– Whatever support you need, all Babus (managers) are fully-trained in mental health first aid. Or if you ever need to chat with someone outside of work or home, there's a confidential advice helpline, which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Physical:– As well as the Dishoom Premier League and other sporting events, you can enjoy discounted memberships, classes and yoga sessions from the very best studios and gyms around.
