Positions Available

Part-time Cook/General Assistant
The American Museum in Britain is looking for a part-time Cook/General Assistant to join our catering team at Claverton Manor. Not only is it a great and friendly place to work, we can offer sociable working hours for a better work-life balance. Claverton Manor is a 200 year old country house that is now the home of the American Museum in Britain, on the outskirts of Bath. The house stands at the top of the Limpley Stoke Valley with stunning views from the café terrace which makes it a beautiful place to work. We would like someone to join our small, busy, friendly team to help prepare a wide range of delicious cookies & cakes and light lunches from warming soups to daily specials and that all important hit-the-spot cup of tea. Today’s kitchen is probably in the same space that the house’s original kitchen was, making it light, airy & spacious. If you would like to learn more about this great opportunity please contact our Catering Manager, Ines Laidler, on 01225 823012 or email catering@americanmuseum.org
