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 an experienced Barista to join us.

While you will be making lots of lovely coffee, this role also entails serving food to customers, helping out in our deli/shop and being a part of our really nice team. We need you to be able to hit the ground running, so good experience is essential.

Essential stuff:

  • You make really nice coffee. You care deeply about the coffee, but understand that it is not just about that: We are looking for a nice person who can also lead the team in general and help out on a senior coffee level. It’s likely you have been making coffee for more than a year and you cover all the bases from perfect steaming, espresso, grinding, latte art, setting grind, basic trouble shooting and daily cleaning. You’re probably working as a barista now and looking for a good step up.

  • You have brilliant interpersonal skills. You love a good chat with customers (we have many regulars who have been coming in for 12 years). Lots of lovely, genuine happy small talk. Great at connecting with people around you, you’re one to spread cheer and happiness all day long.

  • Proactive – you get on with things, you have common sense. You don’t stand still.

  • Above all, you’re a real team player.

Good to have:

  • A Scandinavian language or knowledge of a Scandi language (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish). Not essential, but a connection to the Northern lands is helpful.
  • Any extra experience or knowledge of retail a plus.
  • Any people management or supervising experience a plus as it will help you progress quicker.
  • Knowing the lyrics to ‘Dancing Queen’ always helps, as does a love of all things Eurovision.

The cafe is open daily, so the shifts are either open (7:30 start) or closing (latest finish is 20:00). We are open 7 days a week. This role is full time and is expected to start as soon as possible. This role is offered on a permanent basis.The pay is in line with experience.
