I have had very good service from all at the Glasgow Office. They found me a temporary position, which I have now been in for more than a year. As a candidate, you are made to feel that nothing is a bother, which is not the case with some other organisations. They are very prompt at returning your calls and my weekly payment is never late or wrong. I do, however, speak more to Michelle. You are always very pleasant and friendly to deal with, which makes life a lot easier. Thank you Stafffinders for helping me.

Being part of a team as bar staff or waiting staff is an exciting and engaging opportunity to meet new people and further your skills. Types of working environments will vary depending on the role. The candidate could be working in a casual pub, a busy nightclub, at an upmarket hotel or restaurant or in a concert or venue as relief bar event staff.
With experience as bar staff in the hospitality industry, there is often scope for progression to supervisory or managerial roles which can also be reached through waiting staff jobs.
The average salary will vary depending on hours (but NMW is common), however, staff often make additional tips.
General duties of bar and pub staff:

The working hours of bartenders and other bar staff are often flexible, but candidates will likely be required to work during weekends, often until late in the evening/early in the morning. Employers are likely to require their staff to be flexible and open to working overtime.
What do waiting staff do?
