Since launching on street food markets in 2014, Crosstown’s growth has been swift and strong. We have built an organic and loyal following by embodying a strong appreciation for quality produce and sharing this with our customers, as well as a focus on providing warm and welcoming hospitality. We pride ourselves on hand making our doughnuts from scratch 365 days of the year and using only the best ingredients, serving them alongside excellently brewed Caravan coffee.

We are currently a tight-knit retail team of 70 in a company of 100 employees. Despite being diverse, our staff have some key values in common; They are independent, intuitive, passionate, and enthusiastic. A lot of trust and responsibility is bestowed upon our staff and they are encouraged to approach their role in innovative and creative ways.

In July we are opening a new store in Canary Wharf and we’re looking for staff who want to become part of our doughnut fam! This store will be open Monday to Sunday and we have requirements for full-time and part-time team members, with a minimum requirement of 3 days per week. We are looking for staff who have experience with specialty coffee, who have worked in a fast-paced cafe while maintaining high product and service standards, and who want to develop their skills in other areas including supervisory/management roles. All of our team work in the sales of doughnuts, even our baristas so you must be willing to step out from behind the machine frequently.

To succeed in our team you must:

  • Have a passion for quality produce and great service
  • Be independent, confident, organised and enthusiastic
  • Have great communication skills both within a team and with customers

Entry level retail assistants are paid £9 per hour and are eligible for a monthly bonus of an extra £1 per hour in the month. Pay rates increase accordingly as you progress.

With 10 permanent outlets across London, and a number of weekly markets, Crosstown is still growing. This means there is great scope for professional growth within the company. The boundaries of how far you wish to take your involvement in a small, growing company are limitless.
