Would you like to be part of the café team at Bath City Farm’s unique community café? We are looking for a friendly, enthusiastic, and reliable individual with great customer service skills to join our team.
This role is responsible for the leadership and development of Bath City Farm’s new community café. The café at the farm is a new construction and opened in May 2022.
This role involves establishing systems to enable smooth operations and excellent customer experience. Working with the cook you will develop a seasonal and affordable menu that showcases the farm’s produce and establishes the reputation of the Farm as a destination providing delicious food and drink.
The Manager will ensure the café meets high standards of sustainability in every way. It must operate on a robust business model, integrate seamlessly with the farm’s social programmes, provide an excellent experience for staff and trainees and deliver excellent environmental standards.
The Manager will be a member of the farm’s senior leadership team and support the overall strategic development of the farm.
As well as operating as a hub for visitors, the café is also a training facility for people furthest from the jobs market to build skills and confidence to re-enter the world of work or regular volunteering. This is delivered as part of our Roots to Work programme.
Set within the communities of Twerton and Whiteway, the Farm Café is full of natural light with outside terraced areas that look across the valley into the Georgian centre of Bath on one side. Adjacent is a children’s play area. In front of the café is an edible garden providing a visual connection between farm grown produce and the dishes served in the café.
