GLIDE House General Assistant
Posted 9 months ago - Expired 8 months ago

Sheffield, South Yorkshire,
Permanent Full Time

Gripple and the GLIDE companies have recently purchased and renovated the old Players House on Attercliffe Common, an old iconic Grade II listed building in front of Sheffield Arena, originally built as a school in 1874. Known as GLIDE House, the first floor is HQ for the People & Culture team and a training academy with space to host various meetings and conferences. The lower floor is GLIDE's ‘social club’, with a gym, bar and café. This is an extremely exciting development for us as a group.

GLIDE House has now been open for just a few short months and is already extremely busy with social, training and external conference events, which is fantastic news! As such, we are now looking to recruit a full-time general assistant to support the GLIDE House Manager and the rest of the team.

• assisting with delivery runs of food orders and meeting refreshments to all sites
• running the bar area
• assisting with food preparation as required
• ensuring a high level of health and safety, cleanliness and hygiene

• tidy, with attention to detail
• enthusiastic, with a good work ethic and able to work on your own initiative

You are expected to become a stakeholder in the business, which entitles, and indeed, requires you to challenge, offer ideas, take the initiative and contribute to positive change.
