Welcome to our new staff

Feb 19, 2019

The spring is always an exciting time for us at the Guardhouse as we hire a new group of staff for the coming season. This year the process has been accelerated compared to usual as a number of our staff have found new full-time or part-time jobs in their chosen careers, or started their maternity leave.

That means we’ve been recruiting heavily!

We have still got a couple of roles to fill, and interviews and trial shifts are lined up for the rest of this week. But we are really excited about the 4 people we have hired since Christmas.

  • Tom (chef) – a lovely young man who has brought energy and enthusiasm to our team, and is loving learning his new trade
  • Lee (sous chef) – a fantastic chef who has run two restaurants in China, he has joined us to be Stacey’s number 2, and brings huge experience and ability as well as new ideas
  • Lucy (assistant barista) – Lucy is still at school but has worked for two years in other local cafes. She can make a mean flat white already!
  • Molly (general assistant) – Molly is in year 12 at school and plays rugby for Paignton. She has settled into the team very quickly ever since her trial shift – the day was so busy she got the job and started on the spot!

We will be updating the team profiles on our ‘meet the team’ page, check out the latest profiles here.
