From weddings and large events on our 300-acre estate to urban beach barbecues in the Walled Garden and private dining in historic splendour, we offer an imaginative range of banqueting experiences. To continue exceeding our guests’ expectations, we need to rely on, and develop, every member of the team.
As an Assistant on the Banqueting team, you will be helping to set up tables and to serve everything from champagne and canapés at functions to working lunches at business meetings. You will ideally need previous Food & Beverage experience, but we look for a positive focus on customer care, the flexibility to work shifts when asked, the ability to communicate and interact with guests, in English, and the desire to play your part in a fantastic team.
At The Grove we take pride in creating a wonderful environment for everyone. In return for your hard work you can expect award-winning coaching and development, with the opportunity to cross-train and move departments. Instead of the costs and wasted hours involved in travelling into London, we offer free parking, a staff shuttle bus to Watford and even staff accommodation. And there are many other benefits, including generous discounts, loyalty stays and use of the leisure facilities - plus subsidised on-site OFSTED ‘Outstanding’ childcare.
This role involves serving alcohol to guests therefore all applicants must be over the age of 18.
The role involves shift work, evenings and weekends.
The Grove is one of three prestigious hotels operated by Ralph Trustees, a family owned hotel group. We are a spectacular 5* venue and resort, offering our customers a slice of tranquillity and calm, away from the stresses of every day life.
Across our 300-acre estate we offer fine dining, a range of outdoor activities (including our famed Golf course) and an indulgent award-winning spa and health club. Being family owned means that both our guests and our employees are treated as individuals and not one of the crowd.
Why join us?
Alongside the personable touches that come with working for a family run business, we also offer a range of benefits that are designed to enable you to feel valued and appreciated as an important member of our team:
* The chance to make use of the on-site award-winning facilities such as the spa, golf course and gym.
* A staff canteen with a free meal during your shift
* A subsidised shuttle bus from Watford town centre
* Generous discounts for you and your family/friends on stays with the hotel
* Subsidised staff accommodation (if required)
