❝ The Eight Bells is situated in the heart of the village of Carisbrooke, just a short drive out of the Isle of Wight premier town of Newport. Formerly 'The Eight Bells Hotel', this Grade II Listed building has been sympathetically extended in recent years to provide a welcoming environment for young and old alike. ❞

Job Vacancies

WE'RE HIRING - immediate start - permanent positions available for the right candidate(s).

Front of House:
We're looking to hire a highly motivated, hard-working person to join our front of house team. In brief, the role will involve waiting tables, dealing with customer queries and washing-up duties. In addition, previous experience as a bar person would also be very valuable, but not essential. Training will be provided where necessary.

Chef / Trainee Chef:
We welcome applications from existing chefs or individuals wishing to begin a career in this field. Duties will be dependent on previous experience.

In summary......
We are a very busy pub/family restaurant in Carisbrooke and it is essential that any applicant can work under pressure and cope with the requirements of a fast-paced, often demanding, role.

You should be a team person, have a friendly personality and a willingness to learn. Both roles involve a great deal of time spent on your feet and can be very physically demanding at times. It is therefore essential that any applicant is able to deal with this working environment.

Hours are negotiable, but the ability to work some evenings, weekends and Bank Holiday shifts is essential. Salaries for both posts will directly reflect age and previous experience.

Please make contact ASAP if you are interested in either role. A CV or summary of your previous experience/training would be advantageous and help us assess your suitability. You can reach us via info@theeightbells.net, alternatively you may phone 825501 and leave brief details. It is advisable to phone outside our peak busy periods.
