Summary

Are you always looking to exceed your customer's expectations with your culinary delights? Are you looking for working hours that don't include late evenings and Christmas Day? Do you want to work in an amazing location? If so this role could be for you.

What it's like to work here

An intimate Elizabethan manor and a Cornish gem, Trerice remains little changed by the advances in building fashions over the centuries, thanks to long periods under absentee owners. Today the renowned stillness and tranquillity of Trerice is much prized by both visitors and employees. This silence is occasionally pierced by curious lilts of Tudor music or shouts of excitement from the Bowling Green, bringing back some of the bustle and noise that must have typified its time as a busy manor house.

What you'll be doing

With your passion for food and your appetite to provide an exceptional service to your customers, you'll work with the National Trust Cookbook framework to prepare delicious food. Working with local produce you'll always be looking for ways to minimise waste and control costs and resources. With your attention to detail you'll ensure each dish is fresh, tasty and beautifully presented every time.

As a key member of our busy catering team, you'll make sure the team is working effectively to deliver great results. You may also be required, on occasions to supervise volunteers.

You'll help the catering team ensure our kitchens are presented to the highest standard and are compliant with all relevant legislation around food hygiene and COSHH.

The National Trust ethos will always be at the forefront of your mind, and you'll be proud to share our good work with our customers, you'll look to maximise sales with new ideas so that the profit can be reinvested back into our conservation work.

Due to the business needs we will be offering annualized hours contracts which means the hours you work may vary month to month but you will be paid your salary in equal installments. The hours available will be 788 hours per year (average of 3 days per week).
