We are a lively, friendly catering team based at Highcliffe Castle Tea Rooms. We are looking for catering superstars to help us provide an excellent experience to all our visitors at the Tea Rooms and function rooms inside Highcliffe Castle, whether it be making coffees or creating dishes in our kitchen.
We are recruiting for Food & Beverage Assistants who can work a range of casual hours over a 7 day weekly rota.
The Tea Rooms are a popular spot for those visiting the Castle and we have a lot of members of the public passing through the site, so you will be ready and able to work under pressure in this busy environment. Ideally you will have some experience working in a catering environment, either front of house in a restaurant/café, in a commercial kitchen, or other similar setting. Highcliffe Castle is a Grade I-listed building that offers itself for private hire for meetings, functions & weddings. We provide support to the Castle team on these alongside our external caterers.
Any training in Basic Food Hygiene, Food Allergens, and/or Health and Safety would be helpful, so please tell us about this on your application form. We would also be interested to hear about any other skills you have, such as barista training or bar work.
As part of this role you will be required to:
- Provide a warm, welcoming till service by greeting and engaging with customers in a friendly and polite manner and taking payments when required
- Serve teas/coffees, drinks and ice creams, and some other basic catering duties
- Basic food preparation
- Waiter/waitress service
- Bar work
- Clearing & dishwasher duties
The nature of the service means that you must be available to work weekends and bank holidays as required as part of a 7 day rota.
In return we can offer you a great experience in a busy but supportive catering facility.
