Catering Assistant

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Catering Assistant to join our team here at the Princess Theatre, part of the Ambassadors Theatre Group.

Our Bistros are small, busy restaurants offering pre-show meals and drinks in our largest UK theatres. Working across bar, table service and kitchen roles, this is a great job for enthusiastic and proactive people who enjoy working at a fast pace.

On a show night the Bistros open one or two hours before the show; our shifts are usually in the evenings and last around four hours making this a great part time role for people with other commitments during the day. You'll need to be happy working quickly; we want to guarantee our customers can have a great value, quality meal in the time available before the show starts, so unlike a restaurant that is open all day, we serve all our customers during a limited period of time.

Our venues host a wide range of events, including live performances, talks, films, meetings, weddings and conferences and our team offer the highest standards of customer service for our guests every step of the way. Whether it's a trip to the theatre, a special birthday party booking or a business event you'll make sure our customers have a great experience and want to come back.

This role is both fun and interesting, with opportunities to develop your skills by taking on more responsibility and challenging yourself to beat our sales targets.

The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest regional theatre with a capacity of nearly 1,500 patrons. The Theatre first opened it’s doors on Wednesday 7th June 1963, with Tommy Cooper and Morecambe & Wise. We have always attracted first class companies and famous names including The Beatles, Sir Roger Moore, Joan Rivers, Billy Ocean, Paloma Faith as well as comedians Al Murray, Jimmy Carr, Russell Howard and Katherine Ryan. We showcase the best West End and touring productions from across the UK and a wide variety of performances, including top-named comedians, musicals, local productions, one-night concerts, ballet, opera and our annual pantomime
