Front of House Team Member – Farm to fork, Award Winning Restaurant
Our client has a unique farm to fork establishment, growing most of the produce from the grounds of the restaurant within the idyllic Kent countryside. The small restaurant features a 10-course taster menu, and a wonderful selection of local craft ales and British wines. This innovative young company has been awarded two rosettes this year as well as being voted Kent Restaurant of the Year.
Due to them taking on their second site and internal staff promotion, an opening has arisen for a new front of house team member. They are looking for a passionate foodie (or drinkie) who relishes the opportunity to provide fresh, sustainably sourced food and wants to be part of one of the brightest hospitality teams in Kent.
Experience in hospitality as a waiter or waitress would be favoured but an enthusiasm for food and drink is essential. The service style is relaxed, and the ambience comfortable. You will be part of a customer focussed team who enjoy meeting their guests and sharing the delights of the Kent and Sussex countryside.
You may be working in a cafe, a Michelin star restaurant, gastro pub or a farm shop but you will be passionate about where your food has come from, how it tastes and how it is prepared. You will want to learn more about provenance of food and wine, you will be quite enthusiastic about foraging for wild garlic and finding the juiciest blackberry. This is a position that a waiter, a food and beverage assistant, chef de rang, or assistant restaurant manager would be well suited for.
In return for working with us you will receive a basic salary of between £22000 and £25000 per year and an initial six month review followed by annual reviews. As this restaurant grows there is a great opportunity for career progression in a sustainable and award winning operation.
This operation is all about a work / life balance and operates Wednesday to Sunday. You will have every Monday, Tuesday and Sunday evening off, plus one extra shift per week.
Due to the rural location of this position you will require your own transport.
