Food & Beverage Assistant

What we need in a nutshell

We need someone who understands that food and drink are central to a happy holiday. Someone who can look after our guests’ every whim when they eat, drink and relax in our bars and restaurants.

Some of the background

We’re not your average holiday company. Our guests come to our UK resorts to experience a world away from their day-to-day. When they are with us, they play crazy games, enjoy show-stopping entertainment and live in the moment. Our job is to surprise and delight them at every turn.

We need you to be the person who delivers delight every day when guests rock up to our bars and restaurants. You will have a cheery hello for whether you are serving up knickerbocker glories or pulling the pints.

What you’ll be doing

As part of our slightly bonkers team of holiday heroes, you will be working your socks off to ensure everybody is fed, watered and having a good time.  This includes:

  • Meeting and greetings guests with a friendly welcome
  • Taking food orders and making sure everyone gets what they asked for
  • Serving behind the bar
  • Keeping your area clean, tidy and well-stocked
  • Generally making sure everybody is having a great time

 

And who knows what else you may find yourself doing. If you’re happy to help even when it’s ‘not your job,’ you’re our sort of person.

One more thing…holidays happen at holiday times and eating and drinking goes on in into the night, so you’ll need to work your magic on bank holidays, evenings and weekends too.

Skills, experience and qualities you’ll need

We have high standards! We’ll train you up, but you must:

  • Have customer service experience and skills
  • Relish the fast pace of a busy bar or restaurant
  • Be someone who does things without needing to be asked
  • Be a people person; easy to talk to and never happy until your guests are
  • Have experience of working in a team

It’s about your values too. We have a can-do, fun loving, people centred ethos here at Away Resorts, which is captured by our holiday heroes’ mantra of Attentive Amazing Lovers – if that’s fired up your curiosity, have a read about it here and decide if it describes you.

Nice to have but not essential

It would be great if you tick some of these boxes too (but we won’t hold it against you if you don’t).

  • Experience of working in restaurant or pub (on the busy nights!)
  • Experience of working in the holiday sector
