Brigitte Bordeaux is an exciting new venture in Sherwood, where the local community can buy, drink and learn about wine in their own independent local wine merchant and bar.

We are looking for a part-time waiter or waitress to work regular shifts on Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings. 

Our mission is to introduce delicious wine at a great price to Sherwood, and our Employee No.1 will receive all the necessary training from Kathryn our WSET qualified proprietor with whom the right candidate will be working. We expect the shift pattern to be no more than 18 hours a week with no later a finish than 10pm.  

Waiter/Waitress responsibilities include greeting and serving customers, providing further information on food and wine menus, multi-tasking various front-of-the-house duties, general tidying duties, restocking wine and collecting the bill.

If you want to improve your wine knowledge, are enthusiastic and able to perform well in a service environment, we’d like to meet you.
