We’re currently recruiting for Front of House and Back of House Team Members.

Front of House

 
Our Front of House Team Members greet and seat customers, explain how Twist works, take orders, make drinks – including cocktails and coffees, serve tables, recommend games, Game Guru (teaching games), clear tables, keep the cafe clean and tidy and take payments.

Most our Front of House staff specialise in a few areas, for example not everyone can make a barista-grade coffee, shake a mean cocktail and teach the heavier games in the library, but everyone is expected to carry out a few different elements of the role and everyone serves tables.

We don’t have positions that involve solely teaching board games. It varies shift-to-shift, but often Game Guru-ing is a comparatively small part of the job.

To join our Front of House Team you will need to have:

  • Awesome customer service skills and be passionate about giving each customer an exciting and memorable experience.
  • Great interpersonal skills and ability to build good relationships with colleagues and customers.
  • Excellent teamwork skills and be supportive of your colleagues by being flexible and working together.
  • The ability to work in a busy environment, multi-task and stay calm under pressure.
  • Great listening skills and ability to communicate clearly and concisely.
  • Energy, enthusiasm and a positive attitude.
  • The ability to work under own initiative and take responsibility for your duties.

The following are not essential, but would be beneficial. If you have any of the below please provide details in your application:

  • experience waiting tables in a restaurant/cafe/bar or similar,
  • bartending experience,
  • barista experience,
  • experience in any kind of hospitality setting,
  • a good knowledge of modern board games – knowing your Dobble from your Dominion, your Carcassonne from your Catan and your Scrawl from your Scythe,
  • if you want to fill the Game Guru role, teaching / training / presenting / leading experience – anything that might come in useful when teaching games.

 

Back of House

 
You’ll be making and serving our delicious food, carrying out food prep, keeping the kitchen clean and tidy and washing dishes.

To join our Back of House Team you will need to have:

  • An understanding of good customer service and the importance of the kitchen in delivering it.
  • A passion to give each customer an exciting and memorable experience.
  • Great interpersonal skills and ability to build good relationships with colleagues.
  • Excellent teamwork skills and be supportive of your colleagues by being flexible and working together.
  • The ability to work in a busy environment, multi-task and stay calm under pressure.
  • Great listening skills and ability to communicate clearly and concisely.
  • Energy, enthusiasm and a positive attitude.
  • The ability to work under own initiative and take responsibility for your duties.

The following are not essential, but would be beneficial. If you have any of the below please provide details in your application:

  • experience in a commercial kitchen environment,
  • experience in any kind of hospitality setting,
  • a passion for food and drink.
