Astrea Academy Kingfisher are recruiting a Catering Assistant who is passionate about providing great customer service - this is a term time, part-time opportunity.

As an essential member of the Catering Team, you will thrive in a busy environment, be adaptable and flexible and will support colleagues to maintain high professional standards. 

We are values-driven and our vision is to provide an inclusive, aspirational and academic education for all our students, so that all of them will learn, thrive and lead successful lives. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We want to ensure that all our students have the option to be able to go to university or aspirational alternative. We are not going to reduce expectations because of a child’s background or home life, or because they are new to English or have a special education need. In fact, the opposite is true. It is our job to redouble our efforts to help children overcome these barriers so that they can flourish. 

 What we offer: 

  • A dedicated and supportive team with a shared mission to improve the catering offer within education
  • Access to the Local Government Pension Scheme and Employee Assistance Programme
  • Continued professional development and training opportunities.

The successful candidate will: 

  • Have great communication skills, and the ability to work to tight deadlines whilst paying close attention to detail
  • Be aligned to our values and mission. If you are the type of person who fits with our culture, you will love working here 
  • Have experience of preparing fresh food and of working in a similar role
  • Be someone who passionately believes that all children can achieve, no matter what their starting point, background or needs.

      If you are joining us from another school, academy or trust we recognise your continuous service date with confirmation from your current employer. This can positively impact a number of entitlements, including increased annual holiday payments which represent an increase in salary. This can be discussed in more detail at interview.
