Assistant Butler (Food Service)

Peterhouse, the oldest of the Cambridge Colleges, has an exciting role of Assistant Butler, which we are seeking to fill, due to the retirement of a long-serving member of staff.

The Assistant Butler is one of the team of Butlers at Peterhouse who primarily provide a range of formal and informal meal services to college members and guests of the College throughout the year.  The role is therefore a varied and interesting one, requiring a meticulous, practical, hands-on approach. At certain times the Assistant Butler will be responsible for the management of a small team of casual Service Staff.

The post offers a salary in the region of £20,456 - £25,434 per annum (depending on experience). Working hours will average 80 per fortnight (including meal breaks), worked over a shift system that includes some evening, weekend and Bank Holiday working. Excellent working conditions and an attractive range of benefits, which include 25 days holiday plus 8 bank and public holidays, a College pension scheme, uniform, and lunch whilst on duty over lunchtime.

The closing date for completed applications: Monday 27th January 2020, with interviews on 4th & 5th February 2020.
