调酒师服务于酒吧，俱乐部，酒店，和其他持牌处所饮料和小吃。 With the increase in consumer sophistication, there is more demand for bartenders who are skilled in the art of mixing drinks, sometimes known as mixologists. Strong product and service knowledge is required to effectively prepare cocktails and advise customers on drink selections. The main responsibilities of the bartender include serving drinks and snacks, collecting payments from customers, restocking the bar, and washing and drying glasses. Shifts tend to be long and often include evenings and weekends. Bartenders therefore need to be flexible with their working hours. Ideally, the bartender will have strong communication skills, numeracy and physical stamina, as well as the ability to work well within a team and calmness under pressure. Many employers will look for applicants with previous experience of bar work, however, training for bar work is often done on the job. Some bars and pubs, especially those that form part of a large chain, may arrange for staff to work towards relevant qualifications.
