The Kent & East Sussex Railway is one of the South East’s top tourist attractions and one of England’s leading heritage railways. As a volunteer led organisation supplemented by paid staff, we now have vacancies for Casual Catering Assistants.
Your main duties will be to assist in the provision of a high standard catering service within the Refreshment Rooms at Tenterden Town Station and on-board our trains. You will be part of a small team of staff, both paid & volunteer, with duties to include: table & counter service; operation of the on-board refreshment trolley; cash handling; restocking and cleaning. You will need to use your skills to maximise sales, minimise waste and deliver great customer service.
Ideally you will have previous experience of working in a customer focussed environment. Previous catering experience would be a distinct advantage, although full training is available.
Excellent communication skills and the ability to work quickly & accurately are essential requirements.
These posts are zero hours contracts, with hours offered in line with the seasonal nature of the K&ESR.
If you are interested in facing new challenges and have the skills to further strengthen our team, then we want to hear from you.
