Working at ScandiKitchen
What do we look for at ScandiKitchen?

Here’s what our team members past and present have said about working for us:
- Working at ScandiKitchen is better than pytt-i-panna. And I really, really love pytt-i-panna.
- I came to Scandi Kitchen as a stop gap after Uni. I thought I was just getting a Barista job but because I was interested, I got to get involved in the business side of things. I learnt about anything from costings to strategy – and I ended up managing a small team and having proper responsibility before my year was up. It was, for me, a really good year of business experience.
- I love working at ScandiKitchen for many reasons – but mostly because I am doted on by many attractive Scandinavians who make me food and coffee. And give hugs. I love hugs.
- There’s nothing better than spending a day with your Scandi family.
- I love working with my best friends.
- I thought I was taking a part-time job, but came out having learned how to run a whole side of the business. Respect.
- I can be myself 100%, every day.
- It’s always sunny in here.
- This is the first job I’ve had in my life that doesn’t make me go “aaaargh” when the alarm clock rings…

Do I have be Scandinavian to work with you?
No. We have people from all over. Being able to speak a Scandi language is helpful, but not essential.

Absolutely not. Finland is a nice place. If you don’t behave, we ship you to Høng.
When I’m working at your place, will I have access to free meatballs?
Possibly, yes. Quite possibly most days.
Do you have an age limit on people working at your place?
Only in certain areas (such as kitchen, serving alcohol etc) where you have to be over 18.

No, this is not true. We also like Ace of Base and Basshunter.

It takes time to find really nice people. Once we do, we’d like them to stay. If you’re applying for a full time job, we’d expect you to stick around for minimum of six months or more.
Do you take on work experience students?
On rare occasions, yes – but we do it on a case by case basis and we only take in over 16 year olds.
Do you have internships?
Yes, from time to time. Ask us. We are a fast growing company and we don’t always have all opportunities up on the website. And yes, we do pay for internships because it is the right thing to do.
What do you pay people?
We pay depending on experience, effort and enthusiasm. Show us what you’re made of.
