Depending on your experience, there’s a variety of roles you can take on.
Letting your agency know your have experience in specific roles is crucial. Have a look below if there is anything you should add to your profile at TempTribe.

The role of waiter is our most common shift available. Whether you are working in a restaurant or a large dinner in an event, the types of service can vary massively!

It will be your responsibility to ensure that every piece of glassware is bright and sparkling!
Everyone’s favourite shift! This job role is social and straightforward. However, it requires high levels of organisation and professionalism. Let your interviewer know if you have experience in this role.
This role is front of house. You will be one of the first staff members a guest will see and can set the tone for the entire stay – a great way to earn tips!

No, pushing a “Cappuccino” button on a machine does not count! Only fully trained baristas can work these shifts. It is very important that you are confident in your coffee making skills!
