Do you have a passion for excellent customer service and enjoy working in a fast-paced and friendly environment?

We are seeking enthusiastic and professional individuals, with an interest in the catering and hospitality sector to join our team, to provide efficient catering services to our wide variety of customers.

Working primarily in the hospitality side of the operation, you will assist with the preparation, delivery, service and clearing of hospitality bookings across our campuses, and look after our conference delegates whilst on site.

Ideally, you will have catering, hospitality and/or barista experience, however, a 'can-do' attitude is what we're looking for most, and full training and support will be provided to you. A driving licence to drive our vehicles is essential.

The Catering Services department is integral in supporting a number of University activities such as Open Days, Graduation and hospitality events, and we are therefore looking for people with the ability to work flexible hours, including evenings and weekends, based on the business need – most likely shifts will be on a rota basis between 7.30am and 8.00pm.

You will work at any of our Lincoln campuses, but primarily our Brayford Campus, in the heart of beautiful and historic city, and/or at our Lawress Hall site, set in the picturesque grounds of our 220-hectare Riseholme Campus, just north of the city centre.

Please note that we will be inviting candidates for interviews throughout the advertising period, so don't delay your application - apply today!
