We’re Hiring

The Role

We’re looking for a new member of the team who will mainly be our front of house team member and the first face the customer sees when they enter the cafe.

Due to the small size of the team the role is very varied and we will require you to be involved in most elements of the day to day running of the cafe.

We regularly attend food festivals and have a stall at York train station so we will also occasionally require you to run the stall at times.

Key parts of the role:

  • Barista – whilst we’re by no means a coffee specialist and we’re certainly not pretentious when it comes to coffee, we take real pride in serving delicious and high quality coffee to compliment our cake and sandwich offerings. Experience is preferred but we can offer full coffee training.
  • Stock control – it is important that the cafe is fully stocked at all times and that low stock is recorded in order for it to be replenished in a timely manner.
  • Cleaning – this is extremely important. Every member of the team plays a vital role in keeping the cafe and kitchen clean and tidy.
  • Customer service – it is important every single customer is greeted in a friendly and welcoming manner, you have to love working with people!

Who are we looking for?

First and foremost….do you love cake? We really want someone who is passionate about food and providing a relaxing experience for our customers.

We’re looking for someone who is confident working in a front of house role, enthusiastic, friendly, welcoming and a real people person.

We need someone who takes pride in their work and loves talking with customers. You will be the first face the customer sees and it is important to give the right impression.

Experience is preferred but as we’re a small team it’s more important to us to find the right person with the right attitude. Flexibility, reliability and the willingness to get stuck in and involved is more important than years of experience.

What can we offer you?

This is a real opportunity to develop and play an integral role in the success of a new, independent and family run business. We are a small, fun and friendly team who really care about providing delicious baked goods made from the finest, locally sourced ingredients. There is always opportunity to put your own stamp on the business so we welcome new ideas, whether that’s something for the specials board or a new brownie flavour.

Ideally this is a full time role but we are also happy to consider a part-time job share should we find more than one candidate looking for part-time hours.

This is a challenging role with lots of responsibility and is a great opportunity to work in a fun and friendly environment. We are building a great team here and we are going from strength to strength. We really would love to find someone who is a great fit and looking for a long term role with us.
