Joining our Catering team at Hastings Pier, you will play your part in helping visitors have a fantastic day out at the UK’s Pier of the Year 2017.

Our catering outlets provide the social hub of this amazing site and you will play a vital part in creating a warm and welcoming environment where our visitors can relax and enjoy high quality food.

Whether you are serving coffee at the counter, cleaning down tables or preparing orders in the kitchen, this is an environment that will keep you busy and engaged.

You will have a passion for working with customers and enjoy being a part of a busy team with constantly changing priorities. As a confident communicator, you will be comfortable building rapport with customers and using your skills in sales to provide outstanding service at all times.

As a natural problem solver, you will be able to use your initiative to overcome practical issues that come up as part of working in a busy catering environment. Processes and procedures are a key part of working with food and therefore a watchful eye and constant awareness of your environment will ensure you keep on track to deliver an exceptional customer experience.

You will enjoy the rewards of a great team environment and an inspiring location, helping to make our site a wonderful place to visit and work.

About Hastings Pier Charity
The Hastings Pier Charity owns the pier and leads the Heritage Lottery funded project, which has restored the pier and continues to run community engagement projects. The vision for the restored Hastings Pier is to allow everyone, without exception, to understand, appreciate and experience the pier. It does this through activities that are rooted in the continuing story of seaside culture and heritage.

About Hastings Pier
This remarkable pier opened in 1872 and was designed by Eugenius Birch. It was the first pier designed for recreational use and is a testament to the lasting feats of Victorian engineering and enterprise. A fire in 2010 led to an intensive community campaign to save the pier. On 15 August 2013 HPC took ownership of the pier. Thanks to £14 million in funding, mostly from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Hastings Pier has been restored and opened in April 2016.
