Looking for a job at The Swan
Posted 3rd June, 2021
The Swan in Clewer is Windsor's only community-owned pub and a unique and exciting venture – as a community hub combining diverse activities including sixth form education for children outside mainstream education. In 2020 it won the Great British Pub Award for entertaining the community during lockdown and is in the 2021 Good Beer Guide. Situated on Mill Lane beside an ancient fording point across the Thames, it also has history stretching back to Norman times.
Since the pub freehold was purchased by Swan Clewer Community Interest Company in 2019, the site has been progressively refurbished. Already operating as a pub and café, we will soon complete the kitchen and launch a permanent food menu. Future plans include restoring the first and second floors of the main building to offer accommodation. It is also the campus for The Green Room School's Sixth Form which provides work experience opportunities for its 16+ students. It is a terrific venue for community events run by the Friends of the Swan and will become the base for Windsor Cycle Hub. As a result it will continue to attract positive national publicity and become a very busy pub, attracting local residents (including 190 investors), beer enthusiasts, visitors, cyclists and walkers.
We have an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to join our excellent bar team at The Swan. Candidates must be over 18 and be able to work during the week and/or weekend. The job is a full-time position so the shift could be any time between 11am and midnight. Prior experience is preferable but not essential. Given the new norm, flexibility and the ability for team working is essential. As the pub is a community hub, there are a range of events that staff will help support - it will be interesting and diverse for sure.
