The Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce have been given the opportunity to work in partnership with Sodexo to supply young people to work at The Open in July.
Young people will be paid £7 per hour and they do have placements that they feel will be more suitable for younger students, see info below:
Champions Club – This is an informal, interactive dining area. A very fun environment which gives staff a great opportunity to soak up the atmosphere through their shifts. This would be an ideal placement for younger students as there are 26 shifts for under 18s (Table Clearers, Food runners, Wine Waiters). Staff in this area should be well presented, friendly, and enthusiastic. Training to take place on Tues 12th for some positions, area goes live from 13th July – 17th July. Positions available include:
Canape/Counter Staff – 7:30 – 19:30
Coffee Station Staff – Would be ideal for anyone looking for barista experience. 7:30 – 19:30
Clearer – 10:00 – 16:00/10:00 – 18:00
Runner – 11:00 – 16:00
Wine Waiters – 11:00 – 16:00
Runners – Would be ideal for younger hospitality students, ability to prioritise and have excellent presentation 10:00 – 16:00 (approx. 10 shifts available)
There is also a further opportunity, in order to assist Sodexo in managing the pool of staff, they would be keen to take on a student representative who may be interested in event staffing or HR to assist as a “familiar face” checking in the students, and then to join the staffing team for the remainder of the day.
By working with the Chamber of Commerce, Sodexo’s hope is that we will be able to supply them with young people who are keen to work, have a good attitude and will sustain their placement. There is no getting away from that the shifts will be long, it will be very hard work and a very busy environment.
