Friendly, enthusiastic Front of House Supervisor and Admin/Marketing Assistant is wanted for a part-time role at And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon, a small independent bakery & tea shop based in West Didsbury, Manchester. The role is initially for approx. 16 hours per week (Friday & Saturday) with the possibility for increased responsibility and hours in the future.

If you have experience in supervising staff in a fast-paced food-service environment, have excellent customer service skills and share our love of cake and independent business then this could be the perfect role for you.

Ideally you will:

  • Have considerable experience (of which some must be in a supervisory/management capacity) in a customer-facing, food-service role
  • Have experience of supervising staff and suppliers to ensure the smooth-running of a busy café/bar or similar environment
  • Have excellent barista skills and be comfortable with operating a coffee machine
  • Demonstrate excellent customer service and organisational skills
  • Be familiar with social media (twitter and facebook etc.) and ideally have used it for marketing purposes in the past
  • Have experience within an admin role and demonstrate good IT skills
  • Have a meticulous eye for detail and work well under pressure in a busy environment


The type of person we’re looking for:

  • Dedicated, loyal, outgoing and happy
  • Have a passion for good food & drink in general
  • Be passionate about working for and supporting a small independent business
  • Have a confident approach with customers
  • Flexible and hard-working and not afraid of physical work or longer hours when required
  • Happy to work on Fridays and Saturdays


You will be responsible for:

  • The management and smooth running of our tea-room at weekends (including staff management, stock control, cashing-up, kitchen liaison and customer service)
  • Promoting our business through social media, web and email marketing
  • Managing the admin system to support our external wedding and events service
  • Helping to develop new products and services and contribute to the continuing improvement of what we offer and the growth of the business

In return we will offer:

  • A competitive salary (dependent on experience)
  • A rather nice place to work (we think so anyway)
  • Free cake!
