Provided by: Los Crayfish Hermano
Published: Jul 14 / Deadline: Aug 14
Los Crayfish Hermanos is located next to Gudiashvili Square in the heart of Tbilisi old town, a five minute walk from Freedom Square. We are Tbilisi`s first crayfish bar and we are now looking to hire an assistant for our bar to do waiter/waitress work when we are busy and to help with other tasks when we are quiet.

Hours: 12:30 until closing each day that you work. Working days to be agreed depending on your availability and that of the other team members.
Essential: Fluent in English AND Georgian AND Russian - speaking, reading, and writing.


You must be organised and pro-active with a positive can-do attitude and a friendly smiling out-going personality that is keen to engage our customers and help provide the best possible experience when they are with us. We are a small bar and like to provide a personalised service for all of our customers, including taking the time to actually have a chat with them rather than just taking their order and their money. We are also a small team who understand that things need to get done and we all help each other out to ensure that this happens with minimum fuss.

Experience: Previous bar or restaurant experience preferred (with positive references), but far more important is having the above language skills and personality, as well as being willing - and able(!) - to learn

Pay: You will be paid once per month based on a daily rate which is negotiable depending on experience and performance. Our talented chef will also make one big meal for you per day. Tips are shared at the end of each day between each team member that was working on that day. You will also receive a discount on all of our food and drinks.

Interviews: Interviews will be held in person as soon as possible by invitation only. If you are not fluent in English AND Georgian AND Russian then the interview will be cancelled immediately.

Start date: Immediate
