·         Experience is desired although not necessary

·         You must be able to work all weekends

·         You need a good work ethic & friendly personality.

·         You must have a full driving licence with access to transport.  You will be required to drive our vans.

This is a hard job; but it’s lovely too.  We are a small company and you will become part of the team, and we’re a nice team.  The food community in the North East is a very friendly one, and the traders look out for one another.  Christmas markets are the busiest, but there is a wonderful buzz about them, and you can’t help but feel festive.  The work is varied, and you’ll get to know great venues in the North East.  The cheese is also delicious and staff discount can be enjoyed after 3 months with the company.  Come work with us!
