  • You're able to work unsupervised, are conscientious and dependable, and have the ability to use your initiative.
  • You're a team-player and enjoy working alongside colleagues in what can be a fast-paced environment.
  • Ideally you've some experience in a venue such as a guest house or hotel, but if not don't worry – our team will be happy to help you with your training.
  • You're willing to learn and take direction.
  • Essential for this role are clear and legible handwriting, the flexibility to work varying shifts, and a full clean driving license.

  • Share of gratuities and service charge see next section for details
  • 33 days annual leave (pro rata)
  • Meals on shift are provided free of charge
