    • Educating customers about our beer and philosophy
    • Assisting with festivals and other events where and when possible
    • Preparing web orders and customer collections

    You will need to:
    • Effectively communicate with customers and co-workers
    • Be flexible (available shifts could vary and the Tap Yard opens on Saturdays)
    • Take pride in your work with great attention to detail
    • Experience is preferred but more important is the willingness to learn and genuine enthusiasm for hospitality, community, craft beer or a combination.

    We are looking to bring people in as soon as possible. We offer a generous discount scheme, staff perks, extensive training and the opportunity to be involved with an exciting, high-potential project from an early stage.
