Job title: Food & Beverage Hosts (full and part-time)
Company: THORPE PARK
Salary: £6.19 per hour
Location: Chertsey, Surrey
Our thrill-seekers don’t just have an appetite for excitement. That’s why we cater for every taste here at THORPE PARK. And with a whole load of outlets to choose from, we need lively Food & Beverage Hosts to keep hungry adrenaline-lovers fuelled up for their next daring feat.
About the roles:
From March to November, our Food & Beverage Hosts turn their hand to just about everything. So they don’t just wait tables, serve food and work on tills. They also roll their sleeves up and get stuck in making noodles, burritos and everything in-between. Plus, with our brand new accommodation The Crash Pad opening in 2013 – the perfect place to get your head down after an action packed day – we need people on hand to create the perfect late night and breakfast experiences too. There are a variety of shifts available and the environment’s about as fast-paced as it gets. But whether you’re cooking up a storm at our Bar and Grill, serving drinks at one of our awesome club nights, or are getting the coffee brewing for our Crash Pad sleepers, you’ll take the time to make every single guest feel special. Just as importantly, you’ll make sure we maintain the highest standards of cleanliness.
We’re not expecting you to be a Michelin-starred chef or a trained Maître d’. For these roles enthusiasm, energy and a friendly, positive personality are what’s required. A real interest in catering and strong communication skills will take you far. And, for our evening shifts, some bar and waiting experience would be an advantage. Some roles involve working beyond 10pm and the serving of alcohol – for these you will need to be over 18 years of age. But wherever you join us, you’ll be set on creating the most awesome experience possible – and you’ll be every bit as bubbly whether you’re preparing breakfast or seating an excitable group of thrill-seekers in a jam-packed restaurant.
About the benefits:
Join the team here at THORPE PARK and you’ll reap the rewards that come with working for Merlin Entertainments, the world’s number two visitor attraction operator. As well as a competitive rate of pay (from £6.19 per hour and upwards depending on your role), your Merlin Magic Pass will give you free admission to all of our attractions, including Alton Towers Resort, Warwick Castle, The EDF Energy London Eye, Chessington World of Adventures Resort and Madame Tussauds. Perhaps the best thing about working here however, is the atmosphere across the Park. Everyone at THORPE PARK is here to have fun and that includes the people who work with us.
As the nation’s Thrill Capital, THORPE PARK is the place to get your adrenaline pumping in 2013. Guests can experience the UK’s most thrilling Theme Park as they’re thrown, spun, swung and soaked on some of Europe’s most extreme rides. New for 2013 is The Crash Pad – the ultimate overnight stay that will offer thrill-seeking mates and adrenaline-loving families the perfect place to crash after an action packed day. And it’s this, along with: THE SWARM – the UK’s first death-defying, gut-wrenching winged rollercoaster; SAW – The Ride, the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster; Storm Surge, the ultimate sky-high spinning water ride; and the ‘Unholy Trinity’ of Stealth, Colossus and Nemesis Inferno that make us such a magnet for visitors year after year – and we plan to keep it that way! As part of Merlin Entertainments, we invest heavily both in our facilities and in our people, ensuring we are right up there with the world's best leisure providers.
