An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Kitchen Assistant to join the team and work alongside our Creative chef (commented as “just the best” and “awesome”), in our Yurt which is nestled here at Nicholsons within our tree nursery and provides ‘simple and surprising delights under canvas’.
The right applicant will ideally have worked in a team in a kitchen and have a passion about the locally sourced fresh food they will be working with. The role will include ordering supplies, food preparation, in line with required food hygiene standards and in line with what our Creative Chef advises, and washing up. The applicant will need to demonstrate that they have the ability to follow instructions and have a can-do attitude.
A degree of flexibility is required for this role, which is five days per week, Monday to Saturday (with one day off), with hours between 8.00am and 5pm. There may be the occasional event out of hours, but advance notice will be given.
For the successful applicant this will be an hourly position for around 40 hours per week. Training opportunities are encouraged to up-skill. Benefits include: 29 days holiday per annum (including bank holidays) based on a 40-hour week, rising to 34 days (including bank holidays) after 2 years’ service, uniform, pension, access to our company holiday cabins in Wales and Scotland, yoga… Ideally applicants will be able to drive and have a car due to our remote location.
