Come and join the team at Arnotdale House

Are you passionate about food and love working with people? Do you want to pursue a career in hospitality, but keen to maintain a healthy work-life balance? Do you fancy working in a fast-paced environment for an organisation that offers support to those that need it the most?

If so, then our Café Assistant role may be made for you.

About Arnotdale

Set in the heart of Dollar Park in the middle of Falkirk, Arnotdale House and Café contains a café, and flexible event space. Run on behalf of Cyrenians, a charity which tackles the causes and consequences of homelessness, the beautiful and historic house is a hidden gem surrounding by a peaceful park.

About the role

You’ll be:

  • Delivering a fantastic customer journey for our guests- from warmly greeting and seating to a fond farewell
  • Preparing and selling delicious cakes, sandwiches, and top quality coffee
  • Assisting with functions, events and group bookings
  • Providing warm and memorable experiences for our guests
  • Able to express your personality and represent Arnotdale House to the best of your ability

It’s safe to say you’ll never be bored!

As an organised, trusting and trustworthy team player, you’ll be expected to work efficiently and have great organisational skills, as well as being a true people person, keen to mix with others and go beyond the expectations of our customers. A smile and caring nature will go a long way in this role!

You’ll be joining a team made up of people from a variety of backgrounds with different skills and abilities. This means you’ll need a good way with people – and you’ll learn a lot in return.

The café’s open from 10am – 4pm each day, so unlike many hospitality jobs, this role offers a fantastic work-life balance.

About you

We appreciate that for this role, you may not be fully experienced in everything! While a background in hospitality or catering is advantageous, we will look at applications from all backgrounds.

How we’ll support you

We’ll encourage you to be creative and innovative, whilst meeting our expectations and standards. Our goal is customer satisfaction!

You’ll be joining an experienced and hospitality team who will give you full training on all aspects of your role. You’ll also have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.

About us

At Cyrenians we tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness. We understand that there are many routes into homelessness, and that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to supporting people towards more positive and stable futures. That’s why all our work is values-led and relationships-based.

Our values

  • Compassion: We believe that everyone should have the chance to change, no matter how long that might take.
  • Respect: We believe in tolerance, acceptance, valuing diversity and treating each other as equals.
  • Integrity: We are committed to the highest quality of work, grounded in honesty, generosity, sincerity and professionalism.
  • Innovation: We are willing to take risks, challenge convention and be creative in our search for new ways of working, in particular by taking account of the environmental impact of our decisions.
