Missions: Food service worker

In temporary work, food service workers are particularly in demand to meet temporary needs, allowing businesses to adapt to variable traffic while maintaining quality service.
The missions of a food service worker include preparing the setup for service, assembling dishes according to instructions, serving at the counter, and handling cash. They are also responsible for maintaining the dining area, ensuring the cleanliness of tables and service utensils. The worker must comply with food hygiene and safety standards, manage stocks of food and non-food products, and participate in receiving deliveries. This professional must be able to work quickly, efficiently, and courteously, providing a warm welcome to customers.

Skills and training

No specific degree is required to start, but a vocational certificate in multifunctional food service or a professional baccalaureate in restaurant services can provide a solid foundation. Food hygiene training is essential. Key skills include speed of execution, the ability to work in a team, and a good knowledge of safety and hygiene standards.
With experience and ongoing training, a food service worker can progress to supervisory or management positions in the restaurant sector, such as restaurant manager or cafeteria supervisor. Additional skills in management and customer service can facilitate this progression.
Working as a temporary food service worker offers great flexibility, allowing one to explore different dining environments and gain varied experience. This can be particularly rewarding for those starting in the sector, providing an opportunity to learn quickly and develop a professional network. Temporary work also allows choosing assignments based on availability, thus offering an optimal balance between professional and personal life
