What it's like to work here

Quarry Bank is one of Britain’s greatest industrial heritage sites situated just outside Manchester. Today, visitors can step back in time with a tour of the Mill and Apprentice House as well as strolling through the historic Gardens, woodland and Styal Village. It’s an incredibly exciting time to work at Quarry Bank as the property embarks on a major project with the Heritage Lottery Fund to open up further elements of the site. It’s a friendly team of full and part time staff and over 300 volunteers working together on the property. Why not join us?

What you'll be doing

Working as part of a small kitchen team, our Kitchen Assistants at Quarry Bank support our team of chefs and assist them with the production of all food items served and cooked to order in our very busy catering outlets across the property. Quarry Bank is also a large conference and banqueting venue that hosts over 40 weddings a year and runs many corporate events and meetings during the week. This is a demanding, fast paced role and the post holder will be expected to support with the production of high quality menu items served at weddings, conferences and events hosted at the property for up to 200 people. The post holder will also be expected to support with the production of cakes in our own bakery as well as assisting with daily sandwich preparation and production. This role will involve working on an hourly rota basis, with regular weekend and some occasional early morning working is to be expected.
