Fine Dining Restaurant Forest of Dean - The Speech House Hotel

FRONT OF HOUSE STAFF REQUIRED – Looking for weekday cover, as well as evening and weekends.

The Speech House Hotel has a fine dining restaurant, an informal dining area in the Orangery, and function facilities for weddings and conferences. 

We’re looking for people who are available to cover daytime shifts Monday – Friday, as well as weekend and evening shifts where possible.

We’re looking to hire people who are good communicators and will be able to build rapport with our customers. We get busy, especially when the sun is out, so we’re looking for people who can think on their feet and get stuck in to help others when needed.

Variable shifts are offered but the candidate must be available to work weekdays, weekends, and bank holidays. We also expect bar shifts for weddings to be covered too. Customer experience is preferable, but training is available for the right candidates.
