Are you a keen baker?
Could you do with a little extra cash?
We might have the job for you!
Following a successful summer of baking, we are pleased to announce we are recruiting again!
Our social enterprise bakery is looking for casual freelance bakers to join our team of passionate cake lovers, who can bake and deliver delicious home baked cakes to Bristol. The 'cake on demand' service (CakeOD) we created is growing, birthday cake orders are increasing, and with Christmas coming, our team needs to expand to fill all the orders.
What does this job involve?
It's simple! Emails will be sent each day to the baking team, and it's up to you to accept the order, bake from home (following the recipe provided) and deliver the cake to the customer. You will get first 'dibs' on your
We will provide a company t-shirt, business cards and leaflets, full guidance on baking 'the 280 Bakes way' during your training at home, pay petrol money for deliveries, as well as costs and payment to you for each cake. There's no up-front costs to you, no inventory required, and no obligation to bake every day - just bake the hours that suit you. There is also the chance to bake for community events (e.g. Bristol Viva
Vegan Festival, Lawrence Weston Carnival).
What skills and experience do I need?
We at 280 Bakes pride themselves on the taste of our cakes, so the ability to follow a recipe accurately is essential. Interviewees need at least two years experience in home baking, they need to be able to work to deadlines, and must have their own transport and access to email.
This job would be perfect for someone who works part-time, a student who lives in a house share, or somebody who is unemployed but keen to work. Contribute to the community, improve your CV, and boost your bank account - all through the love of baking. Take a look at the 280 Bakes Facebook page and Twitter to find out more.
Interviews begin next week, so drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in flexible working through baking.
All the best,
The Team @ 280 Bakes
