OTHER PART-TIME POSITIONS

Are you over the age of 18? A team player? Love a fast paced working environment? 

Due to an increase in demand for functions, we would like to build a casual Events Team who would work with us on an ad-hoc basis, on Saturday evenings, to help us create & run private functions at our Letchworth site.

Plus, we are on the look out for passionate Chefs & Kitchen Assistants to join us at both of our restaurant sites in the very near future, as business continues to grow. 

Drop us an email to info@theorchardletchworth.co.uk with your CV & availability and we will get in touch to discuss further.  

But you must have a sense of humour, a great work ethic and tonnes of energy!

(Chef applicants require previous proven experience in a professional kitchen.)
