  • Previous experience of leading a team in a catering environment
  • Strong communication skills coupled with bags of passion and energy
  • A Level 3 – Supervising Food Safety in Catering Certificate or an alternative qualification and/or proven experience in catering will be considered

On a typical day you'll be working in the thick of the action, in the Café, Donut Delight and the BBQ food & beverage units. Whilst ensuring that first class service is being delivered and profits are being improved!

Helping to supervise a team of hosts with a ‘hands on approach’; actively ensuring high standards of guest care is maintained by them.

This role is a permanent, full time role and given the 7-day nature of the visitor attraction, there will be regular weekend and bank holiday working on a roster basis, so you’ll need to be flexible with regards to working days and hours.

  • Fortnightly pay of £9.57ph
  • Merlin Magic Pass - giving you free tickets to all our attractions worldwide for you, your family, and friends every year
