Part-Time Chocolate Workshop Host in Leeds
Chocolate Collective provides delicious experiences for chocolate lovers, through fun and interactive workshops for groups, parties and corporate clients.
We are on the hunt for a Part-Time Chocolate Workshop Host to join our Collective, leading our Leeds workshops with confidence, passion and skill.
Giving our guests the very best experience, our host must be able to hold the attention of the room, demonstrate techniques while talking and manage a variety of personalities and needs in a mature and attentive way. It is imperative that all our guests leave feeling delighted with their experience.
This role is ideal for someone looking to boost their income as it comfortably works alongside any other roles you may have. You must take responsibility for all relevant insurance and hygiene certificates in return for a competitive daily rate, travel expenses and the opportunity to sneak a few chocolates!
Before you start, full training will be given to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need, so while a knowledge of chocolate isn’t a pre-requisite, a willingness to learn, a love of working with people and previous experience of presenting is a must!
Working primarily on a Saturday, but with the possibility of additional hours and host cover in Manchester and Birmingham, you will need to be reliable, flexible and able to drive to our Workshop location in Leeds.
This is a rare and unique employment opportunity for an engaging, charismatic and professional person to take their love of chocolate and turn it into a mouth-watering career.
Running Chocolate Collective Workshops, including:
- Room set up and clear up
- Presenting fascinating facts about the history of chocolate and production process from bean to bar in an engaging way
- Expertly guiding classes to mix, pipe, cut, shape and coat hand-made truffles
- Showing groups how to expertly package their hand-made truffles
- Giving our guests the best possible experience
Candidates must be able to independently travel to and from workshop locations and be able to securely store and transport equipment and ingredients.
Food Hygiene qualifications and certificates required as well as a basic understanding of first aid.
Public Liability insurance is essential.
Previous teaching or presenting experience important.
A love of chocolate is optional (although we will question your sanity!)
Hours: Minimum of two Saturday’s per month, one workshop per Saturday. Typical hours 11.30am-4.30pm.
Start date: As soon as possible with training in December and running workshops from January 2020.
