Tearoom Assistant at National Waterways Museum Gloucester

The National Waterways Museum Gloucester is housed in Llanthony Warehouse situated in the heart of Gloucester Docks. It has recently re-opened after a £1 million Heritage Lottery Fund grant which saw the displays and the warehouse building itself refurbished, a new entrance added and the Sabrina 5 barge, part of the National Historic Fleet just like the Cutty Sark and HMS Victory) refurbished to offer temporary exhibition space and a venue for education and hires.


Now we have got the infrastructure sorted we need to bring our museum to life and make sure that our visitors have the best experience possible. And this is where you can help!

What's involved?

We need people to run our tearooms. This would involve taking orders, serving hot and cold drinks, cakes and other snacks as well as keeping the tearoom area clean and tidy and doing the washing and drying up. We open seven days a week, 10am – 5pm so there are lots of tearoom shifts to be filled.


Why get involved?

This is a great chance to develop and practice customer service and basic catering skills in a friendly environment whilst meeting lots of new people.  You would also be helping support the National Waterways Museum Gloucester as the tearoom is an important revenue stream for us.
