Want to work in a special place?

We’re offering a job with a difference, two of them in fact, writes Ben Gamble at An Tearmann. Jobs that require commitment and will challenge, but which will also provide satisfaction to the right people. They’re also fun jobs if you’re a fun person.

An Tearmann is a bright and busy coffee shop and bakery attached to The Bridge Camphill Community in Kilcullen, in many respects the heart of Kilcullen. It is a direct interface between customers and several members of our community with people with special needs.

And we’re looking for full time and part-time staff to help operate the business.

An Tearmann is a special place and we’re looking for special people to work with us.

Don’t think of it if you’re just passing through briefly on a career to somewhere else. We need people prepared to be with us for some time.

Don’t waste your time coming in if you like your life to be just so, with no diversions or unexpected forks in the road. Working with us calls for some flexibility, both in time and in thinking.

Don’t consider us if you’re impatient with other people, either co-workers, customers, or people with special needs. It is a key part of our ethos to be aware of and accommodate the needs of others.

We’d like candidates to have experience in catering and service to the public. An ability to understand people with special needs and to motivate and support them in a work environment is also essential.

If you want to be part of a friendly and committed team, like to learn new skills, are flexible and adaptable, then let’s hear from you. An Tearmann could be your place.

Naturally, you’ll be positive, organised, reliable and self-motivated.

Bottom line, we’re looking for people worth a six-figure salary. Except that we won’t be paying you that.

Come in and talk to us about it. We can tell you a lot more about us, and we’d like to hear a lot more about you.

Please direct all enquiries to Ben Gamble at 045-481597. Full Job Description and Person Specification are available on request.
