Description:

Determined, vivacious, effervescent and understanding; many would not associate these four words with an early morning start, but in our airports at Delaware North we live and breathe them. Our staff need to encompass these words as we need you to be able to carry out your duties tirelessly with a smile on your face to put our customers at ease. Our customers are unique in airports as they are often nervous, anxious, dealing with delays, excited, tired. Whatever, the emotion, we are there to share the excitement, empathise the delays and put at ease the nerves. It is ever changing, but always rewarding, which is why we need you to join our new adventure and be part of the team that will showcase the best that we can be.
 
Drake & Morgan has opened its first airport restaurant and bar at Heathrow’s Terminal 4, and has been open for over a year. In a joint venture with Delaware North, ‘The Commission’ by Drake & Morgan is a new casual all-day dining concept created exclusively for the airport and as we adapt to the busy terminal we are now looking to add to our team.
 
Located airside in the terminal, 170 seater restaurant will be open every day from first to last flight meaning the ideal candidate will be able to either start early (5.30am) or work late (11pm) on a rota basis.   With a focus on seasonality, provenance and sustainability, the menu will offer a round the clock all-day menu, from breakfast and brunch through to lunch and supper, coffees and cocktails.

Full on the job training will be provided with a focus on service delivery, menu knowledge and an understanding of the Drake & Morgan and Delaware North story.  An online induction ahead of your first day will also support in gearing you up to working at this luxurious restaurant.
 
It was once famously said, “we do not buy superstars, we make them”. This is how we feel at Delaware North. So, if you can commute to Heathrow Terminal 4 for early starts or late finishes, ready to learn through our in-house training and want to be rewarded for working hard- then get in touch and leave the rest to us as you are sure to go far!
