Getting up at 5am to get into work for 6, then starting work after knowing which tesm i will be working with for that day, different area can be difficult but some are easy enough to where you will be finished at 2 and going home to enjoy the rest or the day but id rather put the hard work in knowing i was able to go home early it was an easy enough job until it rained and then getting wet pushing heavy bins around but it was easy enough to keep you head down and crack on.
Pros
Early days
Cons
Bad weather

My day starts when I switch on my phone and listen to messages and read texts. I prioritise and respond appropriatly to ensure services run smoothly. Attend team meeting sharing knowledge, discussing sickness/absence and projects for now and the future. Liaise with headteachers, business managers, HR, H&S, training and development teams discussing future needs and current issues, solving problems on the way. check stock levels, machine inventory, ISOQR kitchen and cleaning inspection. The hardest part of the job is recruiting staff. staff retention is excellent. I enjoy the diversity of the working day. Meeting people, parents and pupils discussing dietary needs.
Pros
essential car mileage
Cons
long hours

I enjoyed working in the kitchens and serving lunches to to the children. I learnt about children with different cultures and what they would choose to eat. As i get along with most people i was happy with my co workers an management. the hardest part of the job is preparing the dining area as the tables are heavy. i enjoy working with children.

Pros
