We have a vacancy for someone - or possibly more than one person - to work for us in the role we refer to as 'Minding the Shop'.  

We're open on Saturdays and Sundays between 11:00am and 5:00pm, and occasionally during the week for Bank Holidays or special events such as Presteigne Festival and H.Art.

Duties include: 

  • Simple cooking
  • Preparing to open the Centre for an 11:00am start
  • Greeting visitors to the gallery, café and shop
  • Running the Reading Room café, serving drinks, cakes and snacks, cleaning and clearing
  • Recording sales accurately, receiving payments
  • Answering queries and being helpful to visitors
  • Closing up, cashing up, and subsequently leaving everything tidy, clean and secure

The right person will be

  • Friendly, outgoing and welcoming
  • Organised and efficient
  • Ideally with experience of kitchen hygiene
  • Used to working in a customer-facing role
  • Calm, sensible, and capable of using initiative
  • Good at multi-tasking
  • Reliable and flexible
  • Able to drive themselves to the Centre as there is no public transport

Bleddfa Centre is a lovely place to work, with a tranquil and cheerful atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. Meeting our visitors and supplying their needs is an enjoyable part of the role. Pay is £60 per session (approximately £8.50 per hour). To apply, please email hello(at)
