Various Roles at Askwith Arms, Otley

Askwith Arms. are hiring!

  • We are looking for waiting staff for mid-week daytime shifts, that will almost certainly be compatible for Mothers (and Fathers) with school-age children.
    You must have your own transport since Askwith is not served by Public Transport and we all enjoy a safe and friendly working environment serving good food and drink to nice customers in an idyllic Country Village pub. Whilst we may consider full-time hours, we prefer a team of staff, each probably doing between 16 and 20 hours a week, with weekend shifts available to those who prefer. We look at people’s skills and capabilities rather than their age, but minimum age will be 18 with any upper age limited only by how long it takes you to deliver food from kitchen to table!
  • We are also looking for a couple of younger people (16 – 21) who might be considered for a Hospitality Apprenticeship. If you are not registered on a College course then we can maybe arrange that, but you would certainly be trained to a high standard leaving you with experience and qualifications that should lead to well-paid work in the future.
  • In this current climate, we are also looking for 2 cleaners to work 9.30 am to 11.30 am 3 days a week, which may involve alternate weekend working.
  • Finally, we are looking for an administrative assistant to work maybe 4 mornings a week (mid-week), to help with the added burden of wages, staff rotas, stock control, VAT returns, Banking etc. This position would suit someone with Managerial and Accounting experience but age should not be an obstacle for the right candidate.

It should be remembered that each applicant must ensure they have the means of getting to work each day, without the help of Public Transport. Tips are equally shared between all waiting and Kitchen staff, and wages are paid weekly into a UK Bank Account bearing the employees name. We will require proof of entitlement to work in the UK at the interview stage.

Applications for all positions should be made in writing please, preferably to or by dropping a CV in. Pay will be commensurate with age, experience and capabilities, but we are an equal opportunity employer. We will acknowledge all applications, and interviews will be arranged promptly with a view to a September start.
