GIY is a not for profit social enterprise helping people to grow some of their own food at home, at work, at school and in the community. Along with their amazing partners, this year they are supporting over 500,000 people and 8,000 community food groups in the UK and Ireland. Visit the home of the GIY movement (and base for the TV show GROW COOK EAT), GROW HQ in Waterford. They want to inspire and empower you to start growing some of your own food. Why not share the joy of growing with people in your local community by starting or joining a local GIY group or project. In 2017 they supported over half a million people and 8,500 groups. The movement is getting bigger…
What they say about this role:
The restaurant at HQ has won multiple awards since opening for the quality of the food and the ethos under which we operate. It is our face, our voice and our personality. Every day we hear great feedback from our visitors about what a pleasure our staff are to deal with, how knowledgeable they are about the food they serve and how fantastic the service is.
Every member of the team at GROW HQ are about the mission — starting new conversations about food with our customers and visitors, and generally living the dream. With thanks to the hard work of that team, we have been honoured to receive a Best Kids Size Me in Munster 2018, National Food Hero award 2017 at the Irish Restaurant Awards, and the Farm to Plate Award at the 2017 Food & Wine Awards. Our brand new TV series GROW COOK EAT, which is filmed at GROW HQ, was aired on RTE 1 from March to May.
These are exciting (and busy) times, so if you feel you would love to be part of our team, get in touch!
