We use only ethically sourced ingredients, free-range meat and organic milk.The HoursWe are looking for an enthusiastic person to work one full day per week and four morning shifts between Monday and Friday (7am – 11am). There may also be hours available over the weekend, if the right person would like them. There’s also the possibility of a separate role covering just one day a week/weekends. So basically, if you’re right for the role, we’ll more than likely find a way to make the hours suit you!The RoleOur new assistant will be required to serve customers excellent coffee and expertly brewed pots of tea, along with making sandwiches/cheese plates/high teas to order. You will also be asked to bake cakes, biscuits and soda bread on a daily basis. You’ll have to be able to work efficiently to get everything done but always have a smile and a bit of chat for the regulars too.The PersonWe need a major food-geek for this job, as although we will send you for fancy coffee training and we will train you ourselves to follow our recipes as we like them to be done, we do expect you to be an enthusiastic, experienced home cook and to contribute recipes and food ideas. Food knowledge is also important: you must know your Wigmore from your Cashel Blue and the difference between Assam and Darjeeling. The perfect person for this role would be someone who dreams of setting up their own food business one day and wants to get some hands-on experience.Pay will start at £6 per hour for the first month of work – which will be a probationary period. The wage will then rise to £6.50 per hour. We are looking to hire immediately. Please submit a CV (can be informal) and a cover letter telling us what hours you are available, what interests you about the position and what you would cook us if we came around to your house for dinner. Applications without a cover letter will not be accepted.
