JCA Bar & Retail Assistant - JCA

"It is a positive and uplifting place to work"
Retail Assistant Profile:

“The role also involves working in the convenience store where children can buy snacks and drinks as opposed to the gift shop which also sells Condover and JCA memorabilia. There is also the opportunity to work in the Orangery Bar. You have to be organised and have good time management.  Also, it helps if you can match the enthusiasm of the children!

My favourite part of the job is interacting with the children who visit Condover Hall.  I also like restocking the gift shop and convenience store because it is based in the beautiful Condover mansion.

Condover is a positive and uplifting place to work because all the children are so happy to be here.  It is great to see their faces when they find the perfect gift to take home at the end of their stay with us.”
