Gilchrist's Confectionery is built around a family run philosophy.  Our team grows seasonally and at peak times can be as large as 60 people strong. Most of the seasonal staff we take on are students along with their friends/family. We strongly promote the family feel as we find it brings a much more natural friendly service.
