Dean - Supervisor
Waxy O'Connor's & Waxy's Little Sister (London)
At the time my brother was Assistant Manager for Waxy's London, he asked me to move over to London from Ireland and offered me a job as a member of Floor Staff.
I started working at Waxy's as Floor Staff in May 2012, I was promoted to Bar Tender in August and then I became Head Bar Tender of Waxy's Little Sister around January 2013. I am now overall Supervisor of Waxy O'Connor's and Waxy's Little Sister
Set up the bar and outside furniture. Ensure I have everything I need for the shift ahead - spirits, wines, fruit etc. Chat to the regulars and create a nice, relaxing atmosphere.

You need to be hard working, loyal, responsible, fun and dedicated to your job.
I have always found the training to be fun and very educational whether it’s whiskey tasting, coffee training or health and safety training. I also had the opportunity to do a Cellar Management course which I greatly appreciated.
I enjoy working here very much, the staff and management team are some of the nicest people I have ever met. At work I’m at my happiest when the Irish music is playing and the Guinness is flowing.
Great training and development opportunities, and fun and rewarding staff competitions.
If you’re hard working, experienced and a bit of craic (Irish for fun) then you’ll enjoy working here.
