    Reports to: Cafe Bar Manager
    Hours: 20 hrs per week over 4 days
    Salary: £12/hr
    Fixed term post: 29 March to 24 October 2024

    The Birks Cinema is an ambitious outward-looking community enterprise in the heart of the popular and picturesque town of Aberfeldy in rural Perthshire. The Cinema incorporates a café split over two levels that offers breakfast and lunch options as well as cinema snacks and refreshments. Our focus is to improve the lives and well being of the community we serve by providing a social hub and space for local groups to run activities.

    The organisation is currently seeking to appoint a cook cafe assistant who can deliver delicious food for our bustling café in rural Perthshire. The ideal candidate will be passionate about food and willing to contribute ideas as part of developing the new food offering at the café. This position would suit a person with a flexible approach when it comes to days and hours of work and a ‘can-do’ attitude.


    The cook will be tasked with preparing hot and cold meals to order in a small, but perfectly formed kitchen. Food preparation will include cooking of a small range of breakfast and lunch items. The post will work independently in the kitchen with the support of the Café Manager and a small front of house team.


    • Open up the building, set up the kitchen and the cafe.
    • Cook and provide Birks customers with both hot and cold meals.
    • Provide catering for meetings, conferences and special events.
    • Ensure that a high standard of cleanliness is maintained at all items.
    • Ensure that the due diligence is completed and the café is compliant with food hygiene laws.
    • Ensure stock levels are adequate to meet customer demand.
    • Look after equipment in the kitchen area and ensure it is deployed appropriately and safely.
    • Plus any other duties as and when they arise.
