Work for Us

Café Assistant, Staverton

We have an opportunity for a hard-working and flexible person to join our small, busy team. We are seeking either one full time (40hr) person or potentially 2 part-time people. Either way, the role(s) include regular weekend working and additional hours may be required from time to time.

Excellent customer service and delicious food made with great fresh produce are equally important to us at Ben’s, and we expect all our staff to put the customer at the heart of what they do. Staff must be great team players, dynamic, enthusiastic, outgoing, effective and able to work with pace and under pressure.

We aim for staff to become multi-skilled and take their turn at the full range of café tasks. Duties include welcoming and serving customers, taking food orders, using the till, replenishing and displaying food in the deli, preparing fresh salads, making barista coffees and teas, cooking the menu, keeping the kitchen clean, clearing tables and dish-washing. Staff will also learn about food safety, controls and checks, ordering, stock rotation and control of wastage.

We’re a small team and the ability to pull together with whatever tasks are required to make the café run smoothly and deliver an excellent experience for the customer is vital. Flexibility is expected: working hours will vary, and will involve weekend and bank holiday working; start and finish times will vary depending on the rota.

Person specification:

Customer focused, out-going, proactive and dynamic

Self-motivated and reliable

Able to work to prescribed standards consistently

Flexible approach to work as hours will vary

Experience of working in a café, food service role or barista skills would be an advantage

Previous or current food hygiene qualification an advantage, though training will be provided
