Redemption Roasters is a speciality coffee company with a difference.

At our roastery, at Aylesbury Prison, we train young offenders in roasting and competition-level barista skills with the aim to reduce reoffending in the UK. We also run several behind bars coffee academies in prisons throughout the UK. After their release, we help our ‘Graduates’ into employment either in our own retail shops or with industry partners.

We are excited to announce that during the course of January 2020, we will be opening a second roastery:

  • inside a prison just 30 minutes from central London
  • housed in an enormous 800 sq/m industrial unit
  • equipped with a Loring S70 and top-class associated kit
  • collaborating with a forward-thinking education department at the prison committed to outcomes for offenders

At this very exciting time for the company, we are recruiting a roasting assistant to help us launch ‘Redemption 2.0’. This role would suit someone already in specialty coffee who wants to progress into the roasting game. We are looking for a willingness to learn, strong organisation/communication skills and a can-do attitude. Oh and you need to be comfortable working in a prison and alongside prisoners (obviously!)

We look forward to hearing from you with your CV and cover letter.
