We are looking to appoint an additional member of staff to our Housekeeping and Catering Teams.

Our team of Catering Assistants as a whole are responsible for maintaining high standards of kitchen cleanliness as well as a high level catering service throughout the day.  High quality meals are provided at breakfast, lunch and dinner times with some formal dinner events throughout the year.  The role is mainly serving and clearing, ensuring all plates, cutlery and utensils are cleaned either by hand or dishwasher and generally supporting the chefs.  Some food preparation may also be required subject to experience.
