We’re Hiring, Come to Our Open Evening on the 15th!

By: Sarah Date: 10/07/15 Category: Events

We're hiring and we think you might just be a brilliant member of our team! There are a number of job opportunities both at the Farm Shop and The Glynne Arms for everything from deli staff to butchers. We are particularly keen to find good people with skills in food preparation; cooks, chefs and grill chefs, as well as front of house staff. We offer a wonderful working environment, competitive salaries and the chance to be part of a professional and highly motivated team with genuine career prospects.

At both the Farm Shop and the pub when it comes to the provenance of our food we promote a field to fork ethos, with much of our produce either grown here on the Estate, or sourced locally from a 30 mile radius. We also offer full training programmes to all staff members and are looking for new team members to begin immediately.

If this sounds interesting, or you know someone who might fit the bill, join us for our open evening at the Farm Shop next Thursday 15th October from 6-8pm where you will be able to find out more about what we have to offer and the vacancies we are looking to fill.

Our award winning Farm Shop opened its doors eight years ago and has now become a must-visit destination for local foodies both for its shop goods and cafe. The pub has been around for a bit longer -203 years to be exact- but under our care for the last two and a half. Opposite the main gates to the Estate, The Glynne Arms really has become the heart of the village, serving a loyal customer base of locals on a daily basis and bringing in visitors from far and wide at the weekend. We currently employ 67 people between the two businesses and we are growing, with an exciting project well under way to open a second stand alone branch of the Farm Shop at our local retail park Broughton Park, which promises to provide further new opportunities for our team.

The Farm Shop also plays host to The Good Life Experience festival in September, in which our team plays a vital role. Now in its third year, this festival of music, food, books, talks, workshops and The Great Outdoors was founded by Farm Shop founders Charlie and Caroline Gladstone, along with singer, songwriter and broadcaster Cerys Matthews and her husband Steve 'Abbo' Abbot. Welcoming over 4000 festival goers onto the Estate this year, this was a rare opportunity to work on an event like no other, a British festival with a real difference.
