Vacancies Passengers visit the buffet at Wirksworth Station

The railway is primarily being operated and restored by dedicated volunteers, but as the business grows, we may need to gain the experience of some full or part time staff to help this growth.

Current Vacancies
Buffet Car Assistant

Our catering operation in 2015 grew to include on train catering as well as static.

The basic requirement is for the Pullman Buffet Car to be open each day we operate public trains starting on February Saturdays through to five days a week in the peak months and reducing back to a Saturday operation in November ending up with supporting the Santa trains in December. Opening on non public days is required from time to time to provide a service for mytesttrack customers and other groups using our premises.

The Pullman Buffet Car maintains relatively civilised hours opening at 0930 and closing after the last departure to Duffield which is normally at 1605. There will also be opportunities to work through the peak periods of the day from around 1100 to 1500. We pay the statutory wage hourly rate at the end of each month by bacs for the hours worked.

A clean and tidy appearance is required and holding a Food Hygiene Certificate would be useful but not essential as training would be given. Living locally would also be an advantage.

If you are interested or know of anyone looking for an opportunity of this nature please contact Eric, initially by email, at

Undoubtedly our catering operation will grow and grow so entry at the ground floor could lead to a very satisfactory career.
