Job Description

Food and Beverage - Team Member

Seasonal Food & Beverage Assistant

Our working environment could not be more different from a typical Food & Beverage setting – where else could you stroll among farm animals and countryside on your lunch break?

What makes Mrs Dowsons a great place to work?

As Lancashire’s Favourite Farm, we have ambitious goals, exciting plans, and there’s always lots going on here. We’re an inclusive and diverse organisation, made up of a core team of permeant staff, seasonal team members and passionate actors.

Each year, we have plenty of exciting seasonal opportunities within our Food and Beverage team, to undertake a variety of tasks such as working in our gift shops, welcoming guests, or serving food and drinks to our families and visitors. No two days will be the same! 

The Role

Food & Beverage at the farm includes the Farmers Grill and Farm Park coffee shop.  We are looking for candidates who are dynamic to work across these outlets.  The roles include customer service, welcoming, food & drinks preparation, cash handling and cleaning.

The Package

  • Seasonal contract

  • Competitive rates of pay

  • Working on a rota basis to agreed hours, hours will be significantly more during busy periods 

  • Annual leave which accrues based on hours of work

  • Staff pass so you can visit the farm during your time off, plus complimentary tickets for your friends and family

When working in the café the main duties include serving customers, operating a till, making drinks, some food preparation, maintaining high levels of cleanliness and cashing up. You will need to have good communication and time management skills and work well as part of a team. You don't need catering experience to work for us but you do need to be the kind of warm and friendly person that thrives in a customer-facing role, will fit well in a hardworking and busy team and has a positive attitude.

Position Requirements

Quite simply, you'll be working in our fast-moving, high energy environment and we’re looking for a genuine smile plus an ability to connect with visitors and make them feel valued. This post is for those able to work weekends and school holidays, starting before 9 am and being able to work up to 7 pm, as part of a rota.

Position Attributes

To join us as a Team Member you’ll need to be confident in approaching and dealing with visitors. Friendly, courteous and helpful behaviour will come naturally to you and you’ll work well as part of a team. Effective communication skills such as attentive listening, face-to-face verbal communication and eye contact are a must. You’ll also need to understand the importance of maintaining high standards of quality and service at a diverse range of tasks. The ability to maintain high energy levels whilst working both efficiently and productively is essential. Finally, your appearance should be smart, clean and approachable.
