The Kent & East Sussex Railway is one of the South East’s top tourist attractions and one of England’s leading heritage railways. As a volunteer led organisation supplemented by paid staff, we now have vacancies within the Catering Department.

We have opportunities for full-day; half-day & within school hour shifts, so whether you're looking for full time, part time, or just a few hours whilst the children are at school, we can usually accommodate you!

You will be part of a small team of friendly staff, both paid & volunteer, with duties to include: table & counter service; operation of the on-board refreshment trolley; cash handling; restocking and cleaning. You will need to use your skills to maximise sales, minimise waste whilst delivering great customer service!

Ideally you will have previous experience of working in a customer focussed environment and previous catering experience would be an advantage, although training is available.

Excellent communication skills, a friendly personality, and the ability to work quickly & accurately are essential requirements.

The posts offer flexible working hours in line with the seasonal nature of the K&ESR and are paid at an hourly rate commensurate with experience.

If you are interested in facing new challenges and have the skills to further strengthen our team, then we want to hear from you.
