Catering Manager

  • Based: Calderstones Park, Liverpool, L18 3JB
  • Reports to: Associate Director of Social Enterprise
  • Salary: £22,000 – £27,000 per annum
  • Hours: 35 hours per week on a rota basis spanning 0700 – 2300 hours, Monday to Sunday.
  • Duration: Permanent

We’re looking for an energetic, creative, ambitious manager, who is also experienced and reliable. You might be a restaurant manager, a bar manager, a chef or a time-served front of house person. We don’t mind which way you have developed – only that you understand the business, and have a strong values fit and a brilliant work ethic.

We want you to come and develop the best park café in the world.

The role is both massively exciting and very demanding. You’ll have a lot of freedom to develop this new business, and there will be plenty of personal development opportunities for you, too, as our site and wider organization are going to grow. But, like most great things, this freedom and opportunity comes at a price – you’ll be held responsible, and expected to get the job done, even if that means clearing tables or scooping ice cream yourself, on a sunny Bank Holiday, with a queue of 237 people out of the door. It’s not an office job.

Please do not just send in a CV. Please download the full application form and job description. Please complete the application form and submit to kateharrison@thereader.org.uk.
