Orleton School Food CIC is looking for a kitchen assistant to operate our popular healthy tuck shop. The hours are 9.45-11.15am, term time only, plus between 3 and 5 additional hours per week for shopping and preparing cooked foods.


Our very popular Pick and Mix Tuck Shop provides a small healthy snack to around 90 children every day during morning break. Tuck Shop is operated by Class 5 students with the support of this postholder. You will prepare the food, set up the stand and supervise the class 5 students to serve the ‘customers’ safely and support students to try new foods and be more adventurous.


You do not need a formal catering qualification (although it would be an advantage) but you do need to be a confident and well-organized home cook as you will need to be able to efficiently prepare large quantities of simple foods in a short period. You must also be willing to work with children in an encouraging and supportive way, have good communication skills and a genuine commitment to encouraging children to be adventurous and excited about food. You will need to work on your own initiative, plan and make decisions to keep the service running efficiently.


Our kitchen team and Orleton Primary School are currently advertising several other part time posts. You may consider combining this Tuck Shop post with one or more of those posts if more total hours of work are needed. Job share would be considered.

Orleton School Food CIC is committed to safeguarding children and young people. All posts are subject to a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service Disclosure.


This post is initially being recruited on fixed term contract until July 2019, but we will look to make this post permanent in future if the service is successful.
