Career opportunities at the

Farm Shop & Café

Are you wondering what you would like to do as a career? For those of us with practical skills and less inclined to pass our day in front of a computer, the world of food can be the perfect place.

The Cowdray Farm Shop & Café is growing rapidly and we are looking for some new people to come and join our team. We want people who really enjoy good food and are interested to learn more about where their food comes from, how it is made and how best to enjoy it. We want people who recognise that there are opportunities within our business to build a career, starting at the grass roots and learning the skills to enable you to take on more challenges and with that, bigger roles.

Our industry is highly sociable. You need to like people and to understand what good customer service means. You will need to enjoy working as a team. With approximately 40 people working here it is imperative that we all get on well. We encourage everybody to share ideas. It isn’t just for the “managers” to make decisions! We encourage everyone to get involved and to take ownership of what they do.
