Catering Assistant - North London


Alexandra Park and Palace is a major event, heritage and cultural destination in north London. It is a rare survivor of the great Victorian age of entrepreneurship, exhibition, and spectacle and was the birthplace of BBC Television in 1936.

Today we continue to deliver those great experiences for everyone, every day of the year, at major events like the darts or music gigs, to a round of pitch and putt, a skate on the ice or participating in our Creative Learning programme. We are known for our diverse entertainment programme, our natural parkland and panoramic views of the city, receiving over 3 million visits a year.

Our team has shown great strength, and agility during the coronavirus pandemic. We have supported the pandemic response efforts and our local community. We have worked hard to look after the wellbeing of our staff and volunteers as well as our supply chains.


The Catering Assistants work across all operations at Alexandra Palace and the role provides real variety; from working in the backstage bar during a gig, to providing a friendly welcome on the Terrace, to opening the ice café, or working in the park during Kaleidoscope or Fireworks.

A flexible and proactive attitude is essential along with good customer service experience and good communication skills. Experience in a front of house retail or hospitality role is advantageous however barista and bar training will be given.

The hourly rate is £10.85

Shifts are offered on an as and when needed basis. We have a very busy event programme planned over the forthcoming year and there will be plenty of work available across all areas.
