Are you an experienced catering assistant/supervisor ready for the next step in your career? Do you have the drive and personality to give all our visitors a great food experience? If so, then here at Birdoswald Roman Fort, we are looking for someone to lead our small tearoom and assist the Property Manager in driving income, controlling costs and delivering exceptional customer experience.

You will be responsible for delivering the food offer and production of homemade seasonal menus, as well as collaborating with the Property Manager and Catering Operations Manager in planning our catering requirements. Whether it's a delicious meal, a sandwich or a traditional cream tea, you'll make sure that everything looks good enough to eat!

You will enjoy being an inspiration to others, leading by example and having the confidence and ability to develop and coach a team made up of a mixture of full time and seasonal staff. It is therefore essential that you have a strong operational background in catering and can demonstrate an ability to effectively manage a small but busy team. You will intuitively understand how to deliver an exceptional customer service and how catering can fit into a broad visitor attraction experience. With good commercial skills you will be able spot opportunities to deliver increased value and margins whilst managing costs.

By joining us you'll enjoy the rewards of a great team environment and an inspiring location, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit and work. You'll also be joining our charity which through our 400 historic monuments, buildings and sites, brings the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.

You'll find it's a workplace like no other - taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.
