Katy's had to leave our baking team, due to other commitments, so that means we're looking for a new baker. Could you be our next recruit?
Are you a keen baker?
Do you work part-time or less, and live in Bristol?
We might have the job for you!
We're looking for another freelance cake making enthusiast to join our team of four bakers; male or female, we need an additional pair of 'part time hands' with great organisational skills, able to follow strict recipes and delivery deadlines. Experience in baking vegan cakes or gluten free cakes would be a bonus, but really, we're looking for someone reliable, flexible, trustworthy, and of course, a good baker. There are often opportunities with 280 Bakes for working events (e.g. Bristol Vegan Festival, Community Summer Fairs) for extra optional paid work.
Please note: All office work (e.g. social media, advertising) is done centrally. This is a 'bake and deliver' role only.
Discount at cake supplies shops (e.g. Kitchen Cookshop), access to 280 Bakes recipes (top secret!) to use at home, a great platform to show off your cakes, social activities with the team and more. Our Whatsapp group is buzzing with baking tips and feedback from within the team - we're a really friendly bunch, so you'll be made very welcome!
NEED TO KNOW:
Applicants must be over 18 years old, have access to a car for deliveries and a smartphone.
Start up costs are minimal - just £20 to cover your 'business in a bag' (t-shirt, business cards, guide to baking for 280 Bakes etc.). Along with all the tangible things to help you set up, we'll be here to assist with any queries and support throughout.
Applications close Wednesday 9th August at 7pm. We reserve the right to close applications sooner if we find a baker we want to hire earlier than expected. Interviews will be via a Whatsapp video call initially, then a face-to-face in your home kitchen with home baked cake sampling.
Interested? Send us a message via our contact us page!
Please have some photos of cakes you have previously baked and/or decorated available.
Previous recruitment drives have produced some amazing talent, so we're excited to be looking for a new team member this month. Spread the word if you know someone who would be perfect for the job!
