Catering Assistant

15 hours a week, Mon-Fri 10:00am-1:30pm 
(incl 30 minute unpaid break), term time only 
Grade 1: £18,333 pa FTE (£6178.00 pa actual salary)

From September 2022 we require a flexible, hardworking Catering Assistant to join our great “in house” catering team to provide a first class catering offering to our students and staff across our five onsite food serveries. We have a recently built kitchen and canteen with excellent cooking facilities and hold a five star food hygiene rating.  We normally operate breakfast, morning break and lunch services, with normal service being very fast paced, accommodating a large number of students in a short space of time.  We also offer onsite meeting and training catering and the occasional after school/evening event. 

Duties will include:

  • Simple food preparation (pizza, paninis, wraps, salad, fruit pots etc.)
  • Filling drink cabinets, food transit to satellite onsite serveries, helping putting away deliveries
  • Operating touch screen till, serving on counters at break and lunchtimes
  • General washing up, cleaning and emptying bins 

Our Catering Assistants must be friendly and polite individuals who can guarantee service with a smile!  When working in a busy kitchen, the Catering Assistant must possess a positive attitude and a cool head. The ideal candidate will have an understanding of food hygiene, a flexible approach to working together, with good communication skills and the ability to work as part of an efficient team. Previous catering experience and food hygiene certificate an advantage.  Uniform and training will be provided.

The Weald is an outstanding, high achieving, popular and oversubscribed 11-18 comprehensive school, situated in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, 10 minutes from Horsham, 35 minutes from Guildford and Brighton, and an hour by train to London.  The school has an excellent record of academic and pastoral achievement and we pride ourselves in creating a caring and respectful ethos where every child is important. The school was judged to be “Outstanding in all areas” by Ofsted in November 2013. Our rolling 3 year Progress 8 results place us in the top 20% of schools nationally.

If you relish the opportunity of working with highly motivated students in a supportive and stimulating professional environment, The Weald School would welcome your application.
