* Cafe Assistant - weekday lunch cover.

Pay: Both roles based on National Minimum Wage – see We add accrued holiday pay, so for someone aged over 25, you could earn £9.20 per hour.

About the job

Do you want to be part of a dynamic and evolving Café team? Can you deliver great customer service? Do you have catering experience? If the answer is ‘yes’, you could be one of our new Café Assistants with guaranteed hours.

The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre welcomes thousands of people through our doors every year to experience the wonder and magic of Roald Dahl’s stories.

To bring this special place the income it needs to operate, our Café Assistants staff the daily catering operation onsite. You will be a vital member of the Visitor Experience team, making sure that all our visitors have the safest and most enjoyable time with us as possible.

In both roles, you will help the Catering Manager and Café Supervisor run the café to high standards at the busiest periods. You will ensure customers are served promptly, tables are cleared quickly, and the cleanliness of the cafe is maintained. You’ll be given training to help prepare food in the kitchen and make a great cup of coffee.

NB The Weekend Café Assistant may be occasionally asked to run the Café as a holiday cover for either the Café Supervisor or Catering Manager (once you are experienced and trained).

Come and work with a friendly team in the lovely village of Great Missenden, just 45 minutes from London but surrounded by the beautiful countryside that inspired Roald Dahl.
