Front of House Theatre Cafe Staff

Applications are now CLOSED.

Are you looking for your next West End role? The Theatre Cafe are seeking a dazzling new team of Front of House staff to mix our signature stagey coffees, new cocktails and serve delicious theatrical meals and desserts.

After being closed since March 2020, we are reopening with a bang, including a brand-new alcohol license, plus a limited savoury menu.

We are looking for team members who are happy to tread the boards as a barista, bartender and waiter. Responsibilities will be shared between the team, who will work on shifts, therefore the ideal candidate will be able to do mix of everything, whilst maintaining a bright attitude in a customer-facing role.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience in the coffee or bar world – we are hoping to find a team who loves theatre just as much as us! Apply now if you fit the bill, and we look forward to receiving your application.

All staff will have to be available for three days prior to opening to undergo mandatory training.
