Kitchen Assistant

Bath - Permanent, full-time

The role


From the growers to the gatherers, The Provenist Café in Bath, brings together people who really care about quality from field to fork (or spoon). Supporting lesser-known independents, unearthing some of Britain's most specialist producers, being mindful of our carbon footprint, and championing consciousness at every step of our food's journey are principles behind every plate.

We're searching for a bright and enthusiastic Kitchen Assistant to join our established team and help deliver a truly memorable customer experience. We treat everyone who visits as an individual, taking immense pride in delivering a warm and welcoming personalised service. That's where your experience will shine. You'll work very closely with our passionate kitchen team to ensure that everything is sparkling clean, well-stocked and organised behind the scenes.

A little bit more about what we value highly:

  • Aiming high - in operational and service excellence
  • Doing the right thing - equally by your team and your customers
  • Doing it together - by creating a sense of fun, enjoyment and engagement
  • Being realistic - we just ask that you do your very best


And the key areas of responsibility:

  • Service excellence - support with the preparation of delicious dishes to delight our customers
  • Brand standards - provide a vital behind the scenes service to ensure all kitchen equipment is beautifully clean and in excellent working condition
  • Operational brilliance - maintain all health and safety standards within the kitchen
  • Customer experience - ensure each and every one of our customers have a memorable visit with our delicious food experiences


Our customers love our cafes as much as our stores, so we are open seven days a week meaning flexibility is essential. Our menus are built on freshly prepared, local produce so you'll have the chance to get involved and learn lots here. You'll be someone who takes genuine pride in your work and enjoys rolling-up your sleeves to help where you can. Ideally you will have experience working in a kitchen environment, however your eagerness to learn and work as part of a team is just as important to us.


In return we offer a highly competitive salary, pension, a lovely work environment and a great range of other benefits. To apply, please send your CV and details of your current salary to us.


We're fortunate to receive hundreds and hundreds of applications every week. While we try to respond to every email, the sheer volume sometimes makes that difficult. So, if you don't hear from us within 14 days, this means your application hasn't been successful, but we thank you very much for your interest in us.
