Staple are looking for a Full-Time Baker at our bakery based in Westgate.

Staple is a Neighbourhood Cafe/Bakery with 4 shops in Thanet, we have shops in Margate, Westgate, Broadstairs & Ramsgate

Applicants should have good experience in the production of sourdough bread and viennoiserie, but at the very least a strong vocational background in some kind of bread/pastry baking. Unfortunately this isn’t a role for someone looking for a new career as we are not currently in a position to train people on the job - we would however consider a chef who has had pastry experience for this role.

Assistance in packing the deliveries for the other shops alongside the driver, orders and stock control will be included in the role - this like all roles is multi functional.

Skills and Personal attributes required:

• An interest in good food and drink, bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, local small businesses

• Strong Communication Skills – You will be part of a small, close-knit team of bakers and will need to be able to communicate over the shaping table as well as effectively communicate using the Qwill app on your phone and also speaking to the front of house. Communication is a key part of this role

• Passion to Work - We have condensed the hours into 4 working days so you will have 3 days off. The days you do work we need energy and drive throughout the day

• Consistent Attention to Detail – this should go without saying to someone applying as an experienced baker. This spreads further than just making nice things; from counting and packing orders in the morning, through to receiving and fulfilling occasional special orders or requests, to completing a thorough closedown while observing daily compliance checks

• Responsible and Reliable – we will be entrusting you to turn up and open on your own when you start the bake at 3-4am. You need to be able to arrive at work on time, which includes not relying on public transport for a long commute. If you cannot drive, cycle or walk to work then we may not be confident taking you on for this role

The positions is full time, 40/42 hours a week, with full availability required across the week and weekends. Shifts are generally 10 hours between the times of 3.30am and 3pm, so we need people who live locally or can easily commute on any day of the week. Rotas are published in good time with 28 days annual leave and enrolement into the Government Pension Scheme

If you are local to Thanet or are looking to move to the Kent, please apply via this advert, including a cover letter explaining a bit about yourself and why you’re applying for the baker position at Staple
