Catering assistant EMA

Your workplace

EMA is an international company focusing on the supervision of pharmaceuticals within the EU. The premises are located on the Zuidas in Amsterdam in the impressive Vivalige building. It is an international workplace where the working language is English. It is a high-end location with luxury appeal. The building has three outlets including the restaurant, coffee bar and Skylounge. In the restaurant, you serve breakfast and a luxury hot lunch, for around 800 guests a day. We also provide banqueting, so it can get pretty busy. The premises at EMA are open 24/7 and the kitchen between 07:00 - 16:00.

You will quickly get to know the guests you receive on a daily basis. This allows you to respond well to their (dietary) requirements and, together with the fantastic team, make everyone happy. EMA is easily accessible both by car and public transport.  

Your team

Are you looking for an international and dynamic work environment where team spirit is paramount? Do you want to be part of a close-knit family team that not only works hard, but also celebrates successes and has fun in what they do? Then you've come to the right place!

Your job

"Good morning!" You've woken up on the right side of the bed and are ready to shine.

You prepare the restaurant 100% for one of the most important moments of the day: lunch. You assist in preparing all the smoothies, salads, sweet snacks, and sandwiches.

Then, it's lunchtime! You see businesspeople looking for a leisurely lunch, a group of interns grabbing a quick bite, and various other colleagues enjoying their lunch break. You greet the guests with your open, enthusiastic, and interested personality. And even better, the guests already know you by now. In between, you might help with the cash register or prepare a cappuccino with a beautiful heart on top.

After lunch, you start cleaning up, preparing for the next day, and making some (meeting) people happy with a cup of coffee, a snack, or a drink. Thanks to your friendly service, everyone is very satisfied, and you receive several compliments.
