Join our Team

Tea Room Assistant

At Oak Tree, we take pride not only in our involvement in the local community and the care we give all of our animals but also in the quality of the home-made refreshments we are proud to offer our visitors. Our food is freshly prepared and caters for all, including vegans and vegetarians.     

We have a vacancy for an assistant to work as an integral member of the Tea Room Team. This opportunity is offered on a part-time, twenty-four hours per week basis. The working pattern will be flexible but will include some weekend working and cover for fundraising events.

As the successful applicant, you will have a friendly personality and a good sense of humour with the ability to act on your own initiative. You should be willing to deal directly with the general public when taking food and beverage orders, handling cash and operating our till. Ideally, you will have a catering background although this is not essential. However, since we take pride in the fact that all our food is prepared and cooked on site, we are looking for someone who combines their baking and food preparation skills together with the desire to give excellent service and consistently high-quality refreshments to all our customers.

We will provide training on site and will also encourage you to acquire external qualifications. This will enable you to deputise for the Tea Room Supervisor as required.

To apply please send your CV and a covering letter to:

HR Department, Oak Tree Animals’ Charity, Oak Tree Farm, Wetheral Shields, Carlisle. CA4 8JA.

The closing date for applications is; 27th July, 2018.
