Catering Assistant role.
About the Team and Role
Do you love working with people and can you stay calm under pressure? We are looking for energetic people who can work front-of-house in our busy beach café at Tintagel Castle. The castle is situated on a wild and windswept part of the Cornish coast and is visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year. Our small team works hard to create a great visitor experience for everyone in this dramatic location and our café is at the heart of this. We have a number of Catering Assistant roles to fill and we will be interviewing continuously over the next month. If you are interested please contact us as soon as possible.
About the Role
Our Catering Assistants are great at customer service and brilliant at selling the delicious food and drinks we offer to thousands of international tourists each year. They make fabulous coffee, serve food made on the premises and keep the café spotlessly clean. Most importantly they always serve customers with a smile, no matter how busy we are. We have opportunities to work weekends and as well as in the week. Being available in the school holidays and on Bank Holidays is essential. Initially our contracts are for 12 hours a week, but as we get into our busy summer period we will increase these hours if you are willing to take on the work. We have various shifts available. The earliest we start is 9am and the latest we finish is 7.30pm.
About the Person
We are an international tourist destination and we have high standards. We need people who have the energy to be on their feet all day and the maturity to handle pressure. We need people who can learn quickly, who take care to follow procedures and who are prepared to muck in with all aspects of the job. In July and August we are very busy and we need people who won’t let standards slip. The café is situated on the coast at the end of a steep lane. We are quarter of a mile away from the nearest bus stop and car park, so you need to be happy with a walk into work!
