Kitchen Porter

Posted 31 July by National Trust Ended

Summary

Do you enjoy working as part of a fast paced, dedicated team? Do you prefer to be back of house but still contribute towards helping customers? Do you want to work in an amazing location? If so this role could be for you.

What it's like to work here

This spectacular 18th century mansion is a very popular visitor attraction. Built for the first Lord Berwick in 1785, Attingham Hall and its beautiful parkland were owned by one family for more than 160 years.

Attingham’s saviours, the eighth Lord and Lady, began restoration work in the early twentieth century and this lives on in our Attingham Re-Discovered project. This project aims to bring the mansion back to life, and this year visitors can see our conservation work in action.

What you'll be doing

With your love of working with people, positive attitude and desire to provide an excellent service, you’ll maintain a safe and hygienic kitchen ensuring it is immaculately presented at all times, in this predominately back of house role. As a key member of our busy catering team you will always be seeking opportunities to reduce waste and find ways of working to save time and money.

You’ll have the National Trust cause at the forefront of your mind, and you’ll be proud to share our good work with our customers, and look to help the team maximise sales, so that our profits can be reinvested back into our conservation work.
