Job description

People are at the heart of everything we do at Pathology, and our newly refurbished canteen area is the social hub of the department, so why not join our professional services team as General Catering Assistant. We can offer a welcoming work environment where you can feel valued, encouraged to develop, and supported to achieve your full potential.

You will support the Catering facility in providing a smooth and friendly service to the department, including food preparation, ordering and cleaning. There are numerous functions and events throughout the year where you will have the opportunity to be involved. Ideally you will have some relevant experience of working in a catering facility, although an aptitude for this type of work is more important as full training will be provided. Good verbal communication skills, the ability to prioritise your workload and to work both independently and as part of a team are essential.
