Current Vacancies


Cafe Assistant - 24hrs per week, with potential for more during busy periods.

We are looking for someone with relevant experience to work in our busy Cafe and catering operation. We need an all-rounder with experience of food prep and service AND front of house service, barista trained being a distinct advantage.

Back of house duties will include preparing orders such as sandwiches, soups, paninis and salads - with some daily specials. We need someone who has experience in a relatively high volume environment as the Cafe can get very busy over lunch periods. It can be a pressurised environment and needs someone with excellent planning and attention to detail, with good communication skills. A current food hygiene certificate would be very useful, but we offer training and qualification in this area for all staff back of house.

Front of house duties include making great coffee! And welcoming and serving customers on the till, cash handling experience is required.

Ideally we are looking for someone to work 4 x 6hr shifts per week (including at least 3 weekdays)  We are flexible to a degree so please get in touch if you have specific queries relating to the working hours/shift pattern.

Salary: £8.72 per hour + tips

  • Free Food
  • On-site Parking
