Hej. Is it us you’re looking for?

We’re ScandiKitchen and we’re that nice cafe/deli near Oxford Circus in London. We are looking for a Barista/Shop Assistant to join us. Our lovely Maja is moving internally from her job in the café to her new job at our head office, so we need to replace her.

While you will be making lots of lovely coffee, this role also entails serving food to customers, helping out in our grocery shop and being a part of our really nice team (we stock 600 food products from all over Scandinavia).

Essential stuff:

• You make great coffee. You’re likely to be working as a barista now and looking for a new challenge (but don’t worry, we can train you, too). • You have brilliant people skills. You love a good chat with customers. Great at connecting with people around you, you’re one to spread cheer and happiness all day long. • Proactive. You get on with things and you have common sense. You think on your feet and you are quite logic in your approach. • You’re a real team player and hard worker.

Good to have:

• Any extra experience or knowledge of shop work/supermarket work/retail a plus. • Some knowledge of any Nordic language is helpful (Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Icelandic etc). Not essential, but useful. • Knowing the lyrics to ‘Dancing Queen’ always helps, as does a love of all things Eurovision.

We’re open 7 days a week. This role is full time across 5 days and permanent (some weekend work required). Hourly pay is £8.50 starting pay, £9 after training (3mth) and £9.50 as shift supervisor. All these levels are paid extra on Saturdays and Sundays (on Sat and Sun the hourly rates are: £10.63 Start, £11.25 Trained and £11.87 Supervisor, respectively).
