Barista/Cafe Assistant - The Grind, Christchurch

Are you looking for an exciting new opportunity? Love food and working with people? Cater Plus is on the hunt for a passionate Catering Assistant to run our Coffee Kiosk (aptly named The Grind) located on campus at Ara Institute of Canterbury, Main Campus.

This is a new sole charge position, with an emphasis on coffee sales. Opening soon, with a Starbucks coffee offering, and warm, welcoming, friendly service, we expect the café to quickly gain popularity with students and faculty staff – and you will be instrumental in making that happen. Most of the food on offer will be prepared off site, however there may be a requirement for some basic food prep such as sandwiches and rolls.

To be successful in this role you need to be high energy with a can-do attitude, friendly bubbly nature and the ability to genuinely engage with customers and keep them coming back for more! You will also need to have previous café experience and be able to:

- serve beautifully crafted coffee and café style food
- operate Eftpos and POS machine with a smile
- work effectively in a sole charge role without direct supervision
- maintain a clean, tidy, and safe café
- provide support for functions and the main café located on campus
- work hard as a reliable and loyal team player who can stay cool under pressure

This position is full time, working Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 3pm, and is educational - meaning there is no guarantee of work during the tertiary term breaks and summer vacation – giving you more time to spend with family and enjoy the sun.

Located in the middle of the action, you will be part of the culture, music and diversity without being a student! If you are energetic and engaging with experience making exceptional coffee, we need you to help us deliver the best food service experience in the industry to our young vibrant clientele. Don’t delay … apply today!

If this sounds like your next opportunity, please apply now, or phone Karen on 027 276 5974 for more information.

The candidates applying must be New Zealand citizens/residents or eligible to work in New Zealand. Please specify your current status in your job application correspondence.
