Job Introduction

About the role
At Sodexo we are proud to have served the UK’s Armed forces for over 30 years! We believe it’s the little things that make the biggest impact!

An excellent opportunity has arisen to help our Armed Forces and improve their quality of life! Join us in our efforts and apply now to become a General Assistant here at RAF Halton!

With a dedicated and helpful approach, you’ll be collecting and washing up the tableware, cleaning the equipment and always keeping all kitchen areas glistening!   

Sodexo reserves the right to close this advert early if we are in receipt of a high number of applications.

A few things about you

You’ll work as part of a focussed team and will keep customer service at the heart of everything you do - and use your exceptional people skills too!

Experience working in a similar industry (i.e., food service, catering, or hospitality) would be ideal, but general knowledge of health and safety procedures, with understanding of basic food hygiene and cleaning will tick the box! 

Sodexo embeds a strong safety culture in everything we do. There will be company procedures to follow alongside our Health & Safety practises so it is vital that you will champion this.

Please note, that a basic DBS check is required if successful in applying for this position.
