Sourdough Sophia is looking for a dedicated and craft driven Head Barista to join our incredible team! Role will be for 3 days a week.

As a Head Barista, you have a genuine passion for and appreciation of good coffee, alongside experience of working in speciality coffee and hospitality. An instrumental part of the Leadership Team, the Head Barista also enjoys building relationships with both staff and guests, fostering a positive and friendly store environment.

You will work closely alongside the Head Baker and FOH Manager to shape the direction of the store. Focusing on Coffee but also other non-alcoholic beverages and general FOH operations.

Sourdough Sophia is truly a bakery born in the community. During lockdown we set up a micro bakery from our dining room and founded Sourdough Sophia to change the way in which us Brits consume bread one loaf at a time.

Within a couple of weeks we attracted huge queues down the road from our little flat and quickly ran out of space. So, with the help of a successful kickstarter campaign and nearly 600 backers from the local community, we opened the doors to our bakery in 2020, only 8 months after we baked our very first loaf.

Before we opened, we made the firm commitment to serve the most incredible coffee alongside our delicious bakes… because nothing goes better together than a fresh butter croissant and a cup of speciality coffee right? Well, now that we’ve been serving and inspiring the community for over 2 years now, we need someone to come onboard and drive our coffee game to the next level!

**As part of this role, we are committing to provide a complimentary SCA coffee training module of your choice in order to further develop your carrier!!! We can discuss the particulars of this during interview / after hiring.*****
