We're hiring our Kitchen Team Members for the 2024-25 academic year!

Updated: Jul 9

ABOUT US: The Students' Union represents all undergraduates students at Wilfrid Laurier University. We are a separate entity from the institution itself and therefore we operate independently from the University. We are a Not-For-Profit Organization which provides opportunities to students so they can take their university experience outside of the classroom. Our team is led by an undergraduate student President and Board of Directors who are elected annually by the undergraduate student body. We are passionate about the student experience, and always looking for ways to improve our members' post-secondary journey.

SUMMARY: The Hospitality Services department oversees all hospitality operations of the Wilfrid Laurier University Students’ Union on the Waterloo and Brantford campuses. Our operations consist of Wilf’s Restaurant & Bar and The Turret on the Waterloo campus, and The Belmont and Golden Grounds Coffee Pub on the Brantford campus. Along with the daily aspects of a restaurant and nightclub/bar operations, a variety of catering and special events are held within the establishments. Reporting to the Kitchen Manager Waterloo, you will be focused on the daily kitchen operations within our business establishments on the Waterloo campus. In addition, you will assist in the execution of service in the Turret during special events. To be successful in this role you will need to be extremely well organized, detail oriented, have strong interpersonal skills and excellent time management skills, as well as possess the ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment.
