Contract, Part Time

Do you enjoy working as part of a fast paced, passionate team? Do you enjoy helping people and want to provide great customer service? If so, this role could be for you.

What it's like to work here

This grand yet intimate family home is a treasure trove of rare artefacts, and we welcome people who can help bring The Vyne’s unique heritage to life. The property’s many attractions include a second-hand bookshop, two-floor café housed in a 17th century brew house and a working kitchen garden which provides delicious seasonal produce for visitors to purchase. You’ll need passion and commitment to work at this fascinating property, however the variety and challenge of being part of the team offers many rewards.

What you'll be doing

With your love of working with people, positive attitude and desire to provide an excellent service, you’ll welcome and look after every customer who visits our catering outlet, in this predominately front of house role. Using your excellent attention to detail, you'll ensure all signage is displayed correctly and the food served looks delicious.

As a key member of our busy catering team, you may also be required to help prepare some of our food in the kitchen. In whatever role you are fulfilling within your catering outlet, the National Trust values will always be at the forefront of your mind, and you'll be proud to share our good work with our customers, and look to maximise sales so that the profit can be reinvested back into our conservation work.

Please note: This job is weekend based.
