Role Description

We’re currently looking for a hard working and driven Catering Supervisor to create a small events team. The team will  deliver outstanding service whilst helping expand our already well-established brand “Campus Kitchen”.

The role will encompass our in-house catering operation, as well as fine dining work, both on campus and at York’s prestigious Guildhall. We want people who push for high standards and take pride in a sandwich as well as a grand banquet and everything in between.

A flexible work approach is a must as the team would also offer support around campus when there is a downturn in events, filling in to help feed the students during our busy conference seasons. The role would offer the same great work-life balance our other staff already enjoy, as well as all the benefits and assurances of working for one of the country's leading universities.

The salary is £12.43 per hour for an average of 37 hours per week on a 5 over 7-day basis. Overtime will either be paid or taken as lieu. Some weekend work will be needed and flexibility is a must to ensure the day to day running of the events.

Why Should You Apply?

  • We offer 38 annual leave days, includes the public and bank holidays, and closure days over Christmas and New Year period
  • A car parking on premises is available and subject to competitive monthly fees
  • We provide 10% discount at on-campus Nisa retail shops (T&Cs apply)
  • We offer discounted postage services (National and International)
  • We provide concession rates to use York winning sports facilities, York Sports Village and York Sports Centre
  • We offer Competitive rates at Campus Nursery and Cycle to Work Schemes
  • We offer discounted rates on local retailers and services that are exclusive to YCL

Please note that if a suitable candidate is found, this position may close at any time.

York Commercial Ltd. (YCL) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the University of York. The Head Office is situated at the University of York, Heslington, York, YO10 5DD and the Directors of YCL are appointed by the Council of the University of York.

We offer family friendly, flexible working arrangements, with forums and inclusive facilities to support our staff. #EqualityatYork
