If you love your working day to fly by because you’re busy doing what you’re really good at, you’ll be a great match for this role. The café/ bar supervisor is a hands-on role, preparing food and serving customers in our newly refurbished building. You will have good ideas about how to improve things, based on your experience, and you’ll discuss these with colleagues to decide which ideas to take forward. You will follow food specifications religiously and be a champion for food safety and hygiene. Our customers will get to know your cheerful personality and you’ll always find time for a smile, no matter how busy you are. Show times at the theatre are particularly busy, so you won’t be panicked by 400 people wanting a drink at the interval; you’ll work with your team to make sure they all get served in time. At quieter times, you’ll be undertaking routine tasks and ensuring that everything is spotlessly clean and ready for service. You’ll take great pride in working as part of a friendly team that provides the best hospitality in town. As a supervisor, you will set high standards for yourself and inspire others to perform at their best. If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to meet you.

This role is offered on a 12-month fixed-term contract, 40 hours per week.

Working hours can be between the hours of 08.00 and 00.00 and will include some evenings and weekends.
