Here at Pause Cat Café in Bournemouth, we’re holding a ‘speed-dating’ style recruitment event for our kitties to select potential employees.
We hope that this ‘Recruitment Catsultancy’ will help us find the most suitable human additions to our team. The café is inundated with applicants every time we recruit, with over 700 applicants for our last advertised role, so we decided to let our kitties have a say! Our owner Jaya says “Our cats are the most important thing to us, so it’s only right that they get to choose the staff!”
Our speed-dating style recruitment evening will take place on Thursday 22nd March: potential candidates will spend a few minutes at stations throughout the cafe to meet each cat, answer questions and complete tasks to assess their suitability.
Each cat here in Pause Cat Cafe has a special bond with one or more members of our team, affectionately named their ‘Mum’ or ‘Dad’. Each cat’s ‘parent’ has designed a task fitting their cat’s requirements; Bear’s Mum, Naomi, says that Bear is predominantly concerned with candidates’ ability to throw her favourite carrot toy and find it when she hides it around the café, so they buy tadalafil online will be tested on this when meeting Bear at the event.
As well as meeting the feline team, candidates will be allocated time with key members of our human crew including staff, volunteers and regular customers. The ethos Pause cat Cafe centres around kindness; helping others and connecting with people and animals from diverse backgrounds, so we are seeking individuals who share that vision.
We hope to use this event to recruit several staff for the busy holiday period and we see this event as a fun and quirky way to make sure the cats get the purrfect human attendants to keep them in the manner to which they have become accustomed.
We’re looking for full and part-time roles including Assistant Manager, Chef, Barista, Waiting Staff, Hospitality Apprentice and a range of voluntary roles. Students looking for holiday work would be ideal for the seasonal posts. Pause is a disability confident employer with over a third of our team having some form of disability, so roles can be adapted accordingly.
