Sophie's is looking for a front of house star! As our most public-facing staff member, the waiter or waitress will be key to the overall experience of our broad customer demographic throughout the season, and the main connection between the kitchen and the tables.
The waitstaff shift will start just prior to the service (11am-ish) through to- or just prior to- the close. Traditional waiting duties make up the bulk of this position: meeting and greeting guests, taking food and coffee orders (customers order and pay for all other drinks from the Milton cellar door bar), running food and clearing & cleaning tables. You will also be responsible for cash handling, coffee making duties and dispute resolution. You may be required to assist with some kitchen preparation and dishwashing if the need arises.
Successful applicants will:
Be experienced and highly competent as a waiter/waitress
Have excellent verbal and written (think dockets) communication skills
Take pride in your personal presentation
Be experienced, trustworthy and square with cash handling
Be comfortable with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures
Have a knowledge of and implement best practice regarding food preparation and hygiene
Listen, take instruction and be willing to learn new skills
Be patient, calm, polite, responsible and respectful with your colleagues, Milton staff, and most importantly, our customers
Have an eye for detail, take pride in your work and maintain the highest of standards at all times
Be fluent in English
Be physically fit
Be flexible with shift start and end times (don't worry, we will give you fair warning)
Thrive under pressure, work hard, and have a big heart
Be reliable, independent, courteous and use their initiative
Knowledge of wine and foreign languages (e.g. French, Spanish, German) is a bonus, but not a requirement
What will you get out of it?
Be fairly compensated in wages and tips
The chance to learn and grow in the realms of service and wine knowledge
To work in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and the most beautiful vineyard in Tasmania!
Please note that it will be necessary to have your own transportation and accommodation.
We are looking for someone to start in December and are looking forward to hearing from you!
