Fixed Term Contract

We are reinventing our catering operation at Brockhole on Windermere. Do you want to be part of this transformation?

With an existing visitor base of over 300,000 per annum, we are looking for an additional Café Supervisor to assist in the running of three catering outlets at the beautiful lakeshore Brockhole on Windermere site.

You will be responsible for the day to day supervision of the café in a fast paced operation that is open seven days a week.   As well as the café, you will be responsible for overseeing the catering for corporate and private bookings and events.

You will deputise in the absence of the Catering Manager and therefore you will be responsible for managing a team ensuring they deliver a friendly and efficient service experience to a diverse range of customers.

The ideal candidate will be currently working in a similar sized operation with proven customer service experience and a sound knowledge of the catering industry.

You will need to have an NVQ3 or equivalent and demonstrable catering and hospitality experience. You also need to have a sound knowledge of Health & Safety/ Food hygiene issues connected with a café operation.
