The Wordsworth Trust is looking for an enthusiastic and innovative Trainee Catering Manager to assist with the development and management of a brand new café at the very heart of our Grasmere site. As we prepare to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Wordsworth’s birth in 2020, we are undertaking profound and exciting changes to this historic site. These include the creation of a new café and retail space and we’re looking for an exceptional person to manage the new café in a sustainable way, that remains in keeping with the spirit of the Wordsworths.

We can also offer flexible working opportunities, a personal pension scheme, free on-site parking and staff discounts, as well as the opportunity to work in a friendly environment right in the heart of Wordsworth Country.
