We are looking for a junior cake baker and general sweets enthusiast to join our bakery team in Leyton, London. Our bakery team combines years of experience with excellent knowledge, training and enthusiasm ensuring our bread, pastry and cakes are some of the best in London and the UK. We now have an opportunity to add another cake chef to our newest section after an amazing 6 months of trialling cakes, tarts, cookies and all things sweet in our London sites!
We are looking for someone with around 1 years experience of baking in a professional bakery/kitchen or with significant similar experience. Whilst this is a junior role, we're looking for someone who has a strong handle on the basics of cakes and pastry and who can grow to be an integral part of the team, creating world class, classic cakes with rigorous standards of production. This may involve some early morning baking, and therefore you must be happy to work night/early morning shifts occasionally.
Our bakery prides itself on doing the classics, exceptionally well. An understanding of traditional British and European baking and an interest in the culture of current baking trends is vital. Things we love: Battenburg cake, Swiss Roll, Iced Buns, Millionaire's shortbread, citrus and polenta cakes, perfect cookies etc. We like to take simple, childhood classics and make them exceptionally well with exceptionally good ingredients. We may have a small offering but we take great pride in those key products. Our bakery is a large, bright space in London’s east end and offers the very best in equipment and ingredients - freshly milled British flour, single estate chocolate and organic butter make for the best pastries and we uphold rigorous standards on every ingredient we use.
Our bakery is the perfect place for someone enthusiastic and creative to exercise their baking and pastry skills, and we’re looking for someone who truly loves the industry.
Most importantly, we want someone with the right attitude, who works wonderfully as part of a team and who has a positive and upbeat energy to add.
