Big Shot Coffee + Donuts is a brand new cafe based in KERB’s Seven Dials Market, right in the heart of Covent Garden. The undercover market boasts some of the very best independent food traders in London and since opening its doors in September 2019 has proven a huge hit with both the public and press.
Setup by the founders of Vicky’s Donuts and Coffee Space, Big Shot sells handmade seasonal donuts and speciality coffee to a busy crowd 364 days a year. We have a dedicated brew bar and a full espresso menu, running off a La Marzocco Linea PB, Mazzer grinders and Curtis batch brew.
We’re currently made up of a small team of 9 and are looking for our 10th addition to work on evening shifts, during the weekdays and on weekends. We’re on the lookout for someone full-time or part-time, preferably working 16-38 hours per week.
About the role
Evening shifts are usually pretty relaxed, serving post-dinner and post-theatre drinks and donuts, while steadily closing the shop at 10pm.
You should be experienced in closing shifts, recognising the importance of following a structured closing checklist and making sure that all control measures are looked after properly.
As we’re part of Seven Dials Market, our cafe area is cleaned and taken care of by the landlord so we’re only responsible for the bar area.
We’re looking for someone who’s positive, a hard-worker, diligent and a problem solver, preferably with at least one year’s experience within the speciality coffee industry.
You should be able to dial in a grinder, maintain shot quality under pressure texture milk for latte art and have an understanding of coffee brewing techniques (pour over and batch brewing especially).
You’ll also have a sound understanding of exceptional customer service, always striving to put a smile on people’s faces and making sure that every customer leaves wanting to tell all their mates about us.
As well as making great coffee you will be expected to help with the general running of the shop including jumping on the till, cleaning and even pouring soft serve ice cream in to donuts (yeah!).
In return, we offer good pay, free coffee & donuts, regular team outings and the opportunity to grow within the company.
Pay @10.55 per hour/London Living Wage.
Please apply by Friday 8th November by sending a copy of your CV and a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your availability and specifying if you’d like a full-time or part-time position.
Excited to meet you!
Simon and Vicky x
