Catering Assistant - Paignton Zoo (Seasonal Contract)
Paignton, Devon

Are you a friendly individual with a passion for hospitality? Like the idea of spending your working day around some of the world’s most amazing animals? If so, Paignton Zoo want to hear from you!

About Us

With over 2,000 animals spread across 80 acres of natural habitat, Paignton Zoo offers the ultimate day out for old and young alike.

While most people know us as one of the region’s leading attractions, we are also a conservation and education charity that is working to make a difference to the lives of animals, both in the UK and across the world.

Part of the Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust, we are dedicated to protecting our global wildlife heritage and inspiring respect for animals, plants and the environment.

We’re now looking for a number of Catering Assistants to join us for the 2019 season, working a variable hours contract.

Your Benefits

- Competitive salary
- Branded uniform
- Excellent training
- Discounts at our catering and retail outlets
- Complimentary tickets to our three zoos

This is a brilliant opportunity to gain experience in the hospitality sector and bring your enthusiasm to one of the South West’s best-known attractions.

You’ll have the chance to play a key role in our overall guest experience and will be the face of the zoo for every guest that walks through our doors.

What’s more, you’ll join one of the world’s most exciting work environments, which includes flamingos, giraffes, cheetahs, crocodiles and baboons, to name a few.

The Role

As a Catering Assistant, you’ll ensure our guests have an amazing experience while visiting Paignton Zoo.

Supporting one of our five catering outlets, your duties will include providing a high level of customer service, preparing food, cleaning and supporting the daily running of our catering outlets.

About You

While no experience is required, to join us as a Catering Assistant, you’ll need:

- To be flexible and able to work weekends, Bank Holidays and during the holiday season
- A positive attitude
- Great communication skills
- A strong work ethic

Other organisations may call this role Catering Assistant, Retail Assistant, General Assistant, Retail Advisor, Customer Service Assistant, Front of House Assistant, Waiter, Waitress or Hospitality Assistant.

Previous catering experience would be beneficial, as would a Food Hygiene Level 2 certificate, but this is by no means essential.

The closing date for applications is Sunday the 31st March 2019.

Webrecruit and Paignton Zoo are equal opportunities employers, value diversity and are strongly committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all employees and all applicants for employment. Equal opportunities are the only acceptable way to conduct business and we believe that the more inclusive our environments are, the better our work will be.

So, if you’re looking to take a walk on the wild side as one of our seasonal Catering Assistants, please apply via the button shown. This vacancy is being advertised by Webrecruit. The services advertised by Webrecruit are those of an Employment Agency.
