Barista Floor Staff

Job Title Barista / Floor staff
Reporting to Restaurant Manager
Contract/hours: Permanent – full time and part time

Re:Centre is a new concept opening on the Thames Path where visitors can find a sanctuary of rest and reflection – a space to connect to ourselves and others in an authentic and balanced way. In this fast-paced and action-oriented world, it is here we are able to find a connection to ourselves, and to our innate inner creative flow.  The space will comprise a main event space or exhibition hall, a rentable workshop space, an artists’ residency programme, our restaurant, a yoga studio, treatment rooms and a rest area.

The restaurant overlooks the river and has both indoor and outdoor seating areas.  Our key approach is offering sustainable, seasonal fare – with a focus on seasonal, and as far as possible, local produce. Our mission to be sustainable has led us to the decision to be meat-free, but we would like our consumers to experience inventive, exciting and celebratory ways of enjoying seasonal produce whilst eating less meat, and focusing more on the bounty of seasonal produce on our doorsteps.

Purpose of the Job

The role requires a consistently high level of customer service.  All roles include making a range of hot and cold drinks to our high standards and waiting tables.
