THE TOP 5 SKILLS TAKEAWAY STAFF CAN GAIN
Customer-facing roles are great for developing communication and interpersonal skills. Workers can refine the art of polite conversation and handle complaints professionally.
Not many takeaway food outlets are run by a single person so there is the need for collaboration between front-ofhouse and back-of-house staff. There is also sometimes a need for workers to help cover the workload of a team member.
Most jobs require workers to take pride in their personal presentation, but this is particularly true when working with food.
4 TIME MANAGEMENT
Takeaway outlets are fastpaced environments so it is up to workers to move quickly. Managers do not want to spend their shift nagging staff so workers must be trusted to manage their own workloads.
5 PEOPLE MANAGEMENT
Workers might begin at crewmember level, in a casual role, but those who show dedication and emotional intelligence can be promoted. Many food outlets have training programs to develop talent.
