We are hiring
“Along with everyone else” I hear you say! So what makes us different? Why should you apply to join us here in Goathland over other jobs out there?
If you aren’t yet familiar with our business, let me give you a condensed version of us:
- Hello, I’m Cecily, the person behind the social media, emails, phone, and front of house for the restaurant. Together with my partner Pete, who is an experienced chef, we embarked on this journey to open our own restaurant, one that focuses on using seasonal, organic where possible, local, foraged, delicious ingredients.
- We have two small children, they are a joy and a wonder, and a juggle
- We live on site, hence the name, the Homestead – this is more than just a business for us, it’s a way of life. We are developing our kitchen garden to allow us to grow as much as possible on site.
- Good food is top of the list, warming and welcoming atmosphere is also up there, and community and connection is key.
We’ve been here nearly 2 years now, and in that time are absolutely thrilled to say we now feature in the MICHELIN guide, and also the Good Food Guide Top 100 Restaurants. We are a small and close team, and wouldn’t be where we are without the incredible hard work of everyone involved. As we grow, we need more of those people. COULD THIS BE YOU?
The role we are looking to fill is a Restaurant Manager position. This would be a full time job, which will include evenings and weekends. We are open Wednesday to Sunday, so guaranteed two days off each week. The successful candidate must be able to not only work front of house in the restaurant, but also support Pete and I in the smooth running of the business, so this will include stock control, ordering, completing necessary paperwork, and generally keeping things ship shape.
In addition to this, we also need an extra pair of hands to work Front of House. Again, this will include evenings and weekends.
Of course I would say this, but I really believe this is a nice place to work. We have interesting and supportive customers, we work hard on our sustainability mission and have lots of exciting plans for developing our little business into a really special and meaningful place. We are always evolving, and hope to find the right people to come along for the ride with us.
If you are interested, and would like to apply, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and a little about yourself and why you’d like the job.
