Work for Us

Thank you for your interest in working at St Michael's Mount.

We currently have one vacancy.

Catering Manager

St Michael’s Mount is a busy visitor destination with high demand for food and drink at peak times. The Catering Manager needs to achieve consistency of food quality, customer service, hygiene and comfort levels whether it’s a drizzly Monday in late October or a sunny bank holiday in August. The Mount’s island nature makes logistics all the more challenging considering staffing and supplies. However, the distinctiveness of the Mount and the surrounding area must be the foundation of the catering offer across the island.

With a large team across two catering outlets (the Sail Loft and the Island Café), staff recruitment, selection, induction, training and performance leadership forms a big part of this role. The Catering Manager is a member of the Mount management team and as such is part of the wider planning, standard setting and decision making in all areas of island operations.

We are looking for someone with proven experience within a catering operation in a similar business (over £500k turnover). As a leader of a large team of customer facing people the Catering Manager will possess great leadership skills with the ability to communicate effectively at all levels to motivate and drive results. Commercial and operational expertise is essential, as well as a contagious passion for delivering food quality, exceptional standards, service and customer engagement in a b2c environment.
