Weekends have recently become a lot busier, so we are hiring for two part-time positions, 3-4 days/week including weekends.
*Barista / FOH
Barista 3 days per week (inc Sat & Sun, plus one weekday Tues-Thurs)
We are looking for a friendly barista who will get to know our regulars, be passionate about chocolate, coffee, food or are interested in learning more, and can share this enthusiasm with our customers.
Your role will be primarily front of house, making coffees and hot chocolates, preparing and serving food and cleaning. You will also be required to assist with packaging and dispatch to our wholesale customers.
Service in the Chocolate House changes pace depending on the day of the week, so be prepared for quieter periods on weekdays, when cleaning jobs and packaging get slotted in, and a fast-paced whirlwind at the weekend, keeping track of orders to go out and going up and downstairs multiple times.
