Catering Assistant - The Ashcombe, Dorking

Based at The Ashcombe School in Dorking, the starting salary for this role is £7,878 per annum for 17.5 hours per week, 38.2 weeks per year. Though this role is term time only, you will be paid a salary every month including the school holidays.  

Have you worked in the catering industry before? Do you have the skills to motivate a team of people? Do you have a passion for great food and a desire to really make a difference? 

This position is predominantly Monday to Friday over the lunchtime period, although we are currently trialling more flexible options, so will consider job share. Twelve15 have Catering Assistant positions available in schools across the county, as well as recruiting for flexible people to join our talent pool. 

Helping prepare and serve food is just one aspect of this varied role. Setting up the dining area, serving children and assisting with cleaning duties are all part of a typical day’s work. You will need to get on well with colleagues with a friendly smile for all our customers. 

We have great opportunities available for committed, motivated people who want to join our team. You will be at the forefront in delivering quality lunches within schools for our most important customers: the children. It is Twelve15's belief that every child has a right to a good school meal.

Strong customer services skills would be required, as a key part of the role is working with our clients, the school, to maintain and to increase the uptake of school meals.

We want to live in a world where our planet is cared for and the people living on it have healthy bodies and minds.

We are very committed to developing talent and skills to ensure our team members are the very best they can be, alongside having the opportunity to grow and flourish. If you want to be part of this great team, with fantastic opportunity to showcase your passion and skill, please read on….

Twelve15 are looking for:

  • First and foremost, a passion and skill for assisting in the preparation and serving of great food
  • Good communication: teamwork and customer service
  • Someone who is creative
  • Flexibility: occasionally you may be asked to work in other local schools

Twelve15 can offer you:

  • Full training and induction
  • Teamworking skills
  • Internal opportunities
  • Our Superstar initiative recognises staff via nomination from their colleagues
  • Get involved with mini projects and theme days
  • Internal wellbeing champions and services available
  • A regular internal e-newsletter showcasing the teams’ fantastic work and positive news
  • Term time only hours that allow good work/life balance

Do our values resonate with you? Does this sound like the right opportunity for you? If so, we encourage you to apply. 

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
