Front of House
Looking for a change in 2023? We’ve got a rare full time (44 hr/week) Front of House vacancy in our Gosforth production bakery starting at the beginning of February. We’re looking for someone to join our friendly, fast paced team serving customers, making coffee, assisting with some production tasks and preparing wholesale and customer orders. This is a really varied role and needs an engaged, self sufficient person who sees and prioritises all the tasks of a busy retail day.
You’ll be energised by people and be excited to learn about all our carefully made products so you can chat to customers with confidence and enthusiasm.
We’re looking for someone with proven customer service and ideally barista experience. You’ll be observant, organised, work quickly and cleanly and integrate easily into a tight knit team.
We really value our people and have a host of staff benefits from 6 weeks holiday and enhanced sick pay to our bike to work scheme. We’re one of Newcastle’s fastest growing independent food businesses and there are so many opportunities for the right person to take on responsibilities, progress and make a long lasting career in food. Pay for this role starts at £10/hour (£22,880/annum for a 44 hour week) which will rise in April with a generous inflationary uplift.
Apply with your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and send us a cover letter telling us why you’d be perfect for this role and answering these 3 questions-
