Joining our Catering team at Deal Castle, you will play your part in helping visitors experience more of England's captivating past and preserve it for generations to come. This is a unique opportunity for you to work at one of the finest Tudor artillery castles in England. Deal Castle is among the earliest and most elaborate of Henry VIII's chain of coastal forts built between 1539 and 1542.

Our vintage van will provide the social hub for this historic site and seafront; you will play a vital part in creating a warm and welcoming environment where our visitors can relax and enjoy high quality food. Working mostly on your own, you'll be responsible for liaising with the Site Manager to ensure the smooth running of the day to day operation of the catering outlet to ensure all English Heritage standards, front and back of house, and legal requirements are met.

You will have a passion for working with customers and enjoy being a part of a busy team with constantly changing priorities. As a confident communicator, you will be comfortable building rapport with customers and using your skills in sales to provide an outstanding service at all times. As a natural problem solver you will be able to use your initiative to overcome practical issues that come up as part of working in a busy catering environment. Processes and procedures are a key part of working with food and therefore a watchful eye and constant awareness of your environment will ensure you keep on track to deliver an exceptional customer experience. A full clean driving licence is essential.

You will 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 will 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.
