That’s Ali (our awesome catering coordinator). In June, after a year of pushing our catering program to new heights, she’s moving to a different department in Clover, which means we’re hiring for a pretty amazing role. For the right person, this could be one of the most exciting job openings in the Boston area right now. Here’s the application. Deadline to apply is May 15. Spread the word. We’ll choose the best of the best for in-person interviews.
CLOVER IS HIRING FOR A CATERING AND EVENTS MANAGER
Clover is a fast-growing empire of restaurants in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline, Watertown, and Burlington, MA (with our sights set on national presence) — and we’re holding auditions for a key member of our corporate team.
The Catering and Events Manager will be responsible for booking and executing world class catering events with the local, seasonal, ever-changing menu that we’ve become famous for, and also planning events that are open to the public, including coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes.
-Interface between chefs, clients, and managers to create catering packages for Clover presence at weddings, office parks, and cultural events (last week we catered the Boston Marathon!)
-Manage pickup and delivery orders from the 7 Clover food trucks and 5 restaurants (this week we’re catering a Hackathon at MIT)
-Rent out portions of Clover restaurants for private parties (last week we hosted Yo Yo Ma!)
-Plan and host coffee tastings, beer launches, kids days, and cooking classes
-Join weekly food development meetings with Clover chefs where you’ll learn about our revolutionary sourcing practices and techniques
-To apply, you must have at least 2 years experience working in a supervisory role in catering sales, management, or events-planning at a fine dining or quick-service food establishment. Culinary school or experience working in a restaurant kitchen is a plus, but not required.
ARE YOU RIGHT FOR US?
-A self-starter, someone who will aggressively go after opportunities
-Someone who will pay meticulous attention to quality of customer experience
-An excellent written and verbal communicator
-The role is competitively paid, full time, based partially on an hourly wage and partially on commission. You earn based on your skills at booking events so there’s no limit to your salary. To give you an idea of what’s possible, this month our current catering manager will earn an equivalent to a 50k yearly salary.
WHAT IS CLOVER?
-We use fine-dining techniques to celebrate locally sourced food at prices that everyone can enjoy. Since opening in 2008, we’ve garnered accolades from The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Eater National, and the Food Network. Our most important critics are our regular customers who line up to eat with us every day. Read more about our adventures and our catering program at our website.
