Wild Valentine is an artisan flower shop and neighborhood café in Portsmouth's South End. We offer garden-style flower arrangements, locally sourced coffee and a thoughtful assortment of food items. We are an enthusiastic team dedicated to providing our customers with an exceptional experience in a joyful environment. We aim to create a floral-filled community gathering space where creativity thrives, curiosity is encouraged, and there’s always a reason to celebrate.
Currently, we are looking to add one part-time team member to our café team. This position is currently for the summer season only but has the potential to develop into a year-round role, 1 day per week during the off-season.
This individual will be cross-trained in both front-of-house and back-of-house skills and responsibilities. Our ideal candidate is reliable, motivated, positive, has high standards for quality, takes pride in their work, and will make customers and teammates feel welcome.
