Cafe and Admissions Assistants Wanted!

Staff in Cafe

We have lots of interesting jobs available at weekends and school holidays. Help to serve visitors our delicious home made meals or a cup of freshly ground coffee in our 5-star rated Beanstalk Cafe. Welcome visitors to the farm on our admissions desk, or create a delicious Mr Whippy ice cream in our All Things Nice kiosk. If you enjoy providing top quality customer service, then there is a job for you in 2017!


Our cafe and admissions team members fulfil a wide variety of tasks including admissions and guest information, preparing food, operating touch-screen tills, delivering food to table, and much more. Everything they do is to ensure our guests get the best possible experience not only during their visit by delivering quality and passion but also ensuring they take home some of those treasured memories in the form of a souvenir.

No two days at Fairytale Farm are completely the same and you must be prepared to be flexible, learn new skills and carry out a variety of duties throughout the day. We are a small team, so everybody mucks in!

An average day may consist of:

  • Preparation of assigned area

  • Ensuring it is fully stocked and a good variety on offer

  • Deliver excellent guest service/ help with queries

  • Use of EPOS tills/ cash handling

  • Adhere to Health & Safety policies/ procedures

  • Maintain presentation levels/ keep a clean work area

  • Clean up and close down

You could be working both indoors and outdoors in varying climates and conditions. Be prepared for a fair degree of standing and walking


It goes without saying we require you to be confident, presentable and able to communicate appropriately to all our guests and colleagues. You need to demonstrate passion to deliver excellence, drive to succeed and commitment to the role and to the team.

Previous experience of working in a customer-facing role along with an exceptional ability to interact with customers of all ages would be advantageous. However as long as you are prepared to work hard, play fair and commit to the training requirements we would love to hear from you.

We can offer both full and part time posts during busy holiday periods. In addition to these temporary posts, we are looking for one person to act as cafe supervisor on one weekend day per week throughout the season, taking us through to 24th December when we close for Christmas.

if any of these positions interests you, please email We look forward to hearing from you!
