Attributes we look for in all our team members:

    • Commitment to learning – we’re looking for people that pick things up quickly and make a difference.

 

    • Experience – although this is not necessary for some roles as full training is given, experience is always a benefit. We choose people on their character; and not just qualifications.

 

    • Excellent Communication skills – do you have the personality and confidence to make sure the customers are walking out the door with a smile? Our staff are our greatest asset, and this helps us stand out from the crowd.

 

  • A fun, positive, can do attitude – We like to have fun. The one thing you’ll notice when you walk into our café is that the staff always have a smile on their face. After all work shouldn’t be a complete drag!

 

  • Flexible (don’t worry we’re not expecting acrobatics) – We’re open 7 days a week so need flexibility in our staff. Weekends/ Bank holidays and school holidays are our peak times; so we are always looking for people who can fit into this schedule.
