Tearoom Assistant

Thank you for your interest in working for the Oak Tree Animals’ Charity.

Tearoom Assistant

Closing Date: 19th January 2020

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, vegetarians and those with certain food allergies.     

We have two vacancies for catering assistants to work as integral members of the Tearoom Team. These opportunities are being offered on a part-time basis. One post being 24 hours and the other 32 hours per week. 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, operating our till and serving orders. You should also have an open approach to working with our valued volunteers. 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 Tearoom Supervisor as required.

HR Department, Oak Tree Animals’ Charity, Oak Tree Farm, Wetheral Shields, Carlisle. CA4 8JA or email hr@oaktreeanimals.org.uk
