Kirkwall Town Hall – which is home to the community centre and St Magnus Café – is a much-loved facility sitting in great company adjacent to St Magnus Cathedral in the heart of the town’s main throughfare.
You can’t beat the location, the loyalty from customers or the friendly, albeit small staff team!
We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time permanent centre supervisor who will look after the day-to-day management of the facility and staff.
You can earn up to £17.36 an hour, there’s a great pension and exceptional annual holidays.
Corporate Catering Service Manager, Scott Pring, said: “If you enjoy cooking, organising others and are looking for a bit of variety in your job, then this would be a great role for you. You get to meet lots of people and the staff say it’s very lightsome.
“We are a great team to be part of and you would be supported into the role.”
To find out more give Scott a shout on (01856) 879238 or email@example.com.
The closing date is Sunday 13 August 2023.
