The Kent & East Sussex Railway is one of the UK’s most loved heritage railways, located in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are once again operating train services following the recent lockdowns and are now seeking a small team of catering assistants. The successful applicants will undertake a variety of catering duties including serving customers in our station outlets and on-board our trains, and food preparation. The positions will be based at Tenterden Town Station, but you may be required to work in other locations less easily accessible by public transport, so access to private transport and a full driving licence would be an advantage. You must be able to work quickly and consistently under pressure, yet always with pride; ideally you will have experience of commercial catering, however enthusiasm and a willingness to work hard is all that’s required as full training can be provided.

Key Skills:

  • Able to deliver excellent and consistent levels of customer service
  • Good communication skills and a positive disposition are essential
  • Able to work on own initiative or as directed
  • Must be able to work alone or as part of a small team
  • Must have consistently high standards of presentation
  • Must be punctual and reliable at all times

As a seasonal business, candidates should be flexible and able to work shifts any day of the week. This position may require lone working.

A zero hours contract will be offered initially, hours of work will be up to 40 hours per week.

This is a seasonal position with immediate start to the end of October 2021. Rate of pay meets National Living/minimum Wage for age. Applicants for this position must have the right to work in the UK.
