Store Street Espresso is looking for a new HEAD CHEF / BAKER to operate our kitchen in central London.
We run two specialty coffee shops located in Bloomsbury (with a third opening soon) and we pay meticulous attention to our food and baked goods - sourcing ingredients from the best suppliers possible, and looking to improve all the time.
The role available involves full management of the kitchen including, ordering, writing menus, running brunch service, organising the kitchen rota, and managing the kitchen staff. This role would begin with one supporting chef that already works with us now.
Right now we are running a skeleton operation due to the pandemic, and looking for a talented chef that understands the cafe space to help us build our food offering back up.
We make all of our own baked goods, so applicants must have good baking experience, they should arrive with recipes in hand, and ideas hopefully!
During normal times we run brunch service from 8:30am – 3pm at one site, and we also supply sandwiches, a variety of savoury options, and baked goods to our second site, located in the same neighbourhood. Shifts typically run from 7am -to- 3:30pm. And the total hours per week will range from 38 – 44, the schedule is very civilised! No night time work at all.
As this role involves cooking and baking, chefs with good experience in both areas are preferred. Most importantly, the role offers a lot of autonomy if someone has the right attitude and skills.
The right applicant would have freedom to be creative and try new things with both the brunch menu and baking. Someone with good organisational skills, and a passion for good food and brunch will love this job.
Finally, we are an independent business and we always try to employ friendly people. As such we make sure to provide a nice working environment, with a supportive team.
This job provides a great opportunity for an experienced chef looking for a balanced life, and the opportunity to be a bit creative.
Competitive rates of pay, dependent on experience.
