PERSON SPECIFICATION

This role combines key operational responsibilities with vital customer service goals. You thus need attention to detail, whether you’re looking at a database or the member kitchen.

A natural multi-tasker, you require little supervision but are a great collaborator. You are extremely resourceful; you excel at solving problems creatively with limited resources. You are ready to respond to whatever the job demands; you have a great sense of humor, are creative, think fast on your feet, and don’t mind putting in extra hours to get the job done.
