Breakfast Assistant

  • VO58738


Our breakfast assistants volunteer alongside the General Catering Assistants at Leuchie, to ensure that our guests receive their chosen breakfast in a timely fashion when they arrive in the dining room in the morning.
Duties include:

• Assisting in setting up the dining room
• Preparing breakfast for guests as they arrive
• Preparing & delivering breakfast trays to guests who are taking breakfast in their room
• Assisting guests with eating & drinking as required
• Clearing dishes to dishwasher
• Returning clean dishes to dining room

The social aspect of this role is equally as important as these duties – our guests hugely enjoy the wide range of staff and volunteers they interact with. The focus at Leuchie is on a holiday environment and this role is key to setting them up for the day.
