This is an exciting opportunity to lead the team and develop the reading cafe at Rowntree Park and the temporary pop-up reading cafe in Homestead Park in York. Part of the Explore York Library and Archive family, you will be responsible for developing all areas of the facilities – the promotion of books and reading is as important to us as the production of fabulous food. You must have a love of good books as well as a passion for good food and be able to deliver excellent customer service. The reading cafe’s have received a lot of attention nationally as this is an innovative and different cafe experience – the only one of its kind- and as such we expect our standards to remain continuously high. We are looking for someone with experience in the catering industry, ideally with experience at a management or supervisory level. Most importantly, you must care about the quality of the customer experience. You must be able to motivate and lead staff on a day to day basis and be able to enthuse about and promote reading and the reading cafe itself. You will be based primarily at Rowntree Park reading cafe, but be responsible for the staffing across both of the sites.
