Front of House – The Swan, Grasmere

You’ll be the friendly face of our establishment. But your important role is about much more than greeting and seating people with a smile. A warm welcome is just the beginning. You’ll make sure every moment – from noting orders, to delivering drinks and dishes, and taking payment with a genuine ‘thank you’ – is timely, efficient and delivered with enthusiasm. Along the way, you’ll add the little touches that make a customer’s visit an experience to savour – like recommending the perfect drink or side dish to complement a main course. You don’t need previous experience to join us in this role.

It’s all about what you can bring as a person. Comfortable and confident working at a fast pace, you take real pride in everything you do – from setting the table, to cleaning the bar. You’re a skilled multi-tasker, and you’re always ready to adapt when priorities change. And you make sure you know our latest food and drinks menus inside-out. Like all of us, you really care about our customers. You’re committed to your colleagues too, and you’ll work hard for them. Crucially, you always strive to be the best in everything you do. You’ll enjoy the chance to shine every day. And you’ll benefit from the best training and development programmes in the industry. So wherever you’re coming from, we will help you get to anywhere you want to go.
