Event & Project Manager

Barista – ScandiKitchen Cafe

 

Barista – Café

We’re ScandiKitchen and we’re a nice little cafe/deli near Oxford Circus. A little bit of background; ScandiKitchen is an independent Café & shop in Central London. We opened our doors in 2007 and have gone from strength to strength, helping build a Scandinavian food culture in the UK. In our café we serve open sandwiches, beautiful salads and delicious cakes – as well as great coffee. We also stock 600 food products from all over Scandinavia. Our customers are a broad mix of ex-pat Scandies, foodies and people who work in the local area.

We are now looking for a new person to join our lovely team as barista.

In this role, you will be mainly:

  • Serving customers, being the all round friendly and bubbly person that you are
  • Make awesome coffee (we will teach you from scratch)
  • Help out in the retail area – our Retail Manager Thom needs help over the busiest days with everything from sales to stocking up to problem solving, pricing etc.
  • Clear tables, keep everything flowing and neat and wonderful
  • Give a hand in the kitchen when needed

Essential skills:

  • You care deeply about the coffee, but understand that it is not just about the coffee: We are looking for a super nice person who can also add to the team in general and help out.
  • You have brilliant interpersonal skills. You love a good chat with customers (we have many regulars who have been coming in for 9 years). Hugs all around, lots of lovely, genuine happy small talk.
  • Great at connecting with people around you, you’re one to spread cheer and happiness all day long.
  • Proactive – you get on with things, you have common sense. You don’t stand still.
  • Above all, you’re a team player.
  • A Scandinavian language or knowledge of a Scandi language is really, really helpful in this role as you will be dealing a lot with Scandinavian food products and will be expected to be able to advise shoppers.
  • Promoter of all things Hygge and Fika.
  • Any extra experience or knowledge of retail a plus.
  • Knowing the lyrics to ‘She’s Got the Look’ always helps, as does a love of all things Eurovision.

The cafe is open daily, so the shifts are either open (7:30 start) or closing (latest finish is 20:00). We are open 7 days a week, so there is weekend work, too.

Please get in touch as soon as possible. Send your CV and a cover note telling us why you want to work with us. Send to; iloveherring@scandikitchen.co.uk.

Event & Project Manager

Hej!

We are looking for someone with experience of Event and Project Management in food to run a project that is happening until the end of 2017. We have been offered a Food Stall at a prestigious London food Market. The Stall/ Spot will offer hot food and snacks and products every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until end of the year. We aim to serve 400 people a day, so it is a busy role – and it is full time and full on!
We already have a few of the team members, but we’re looking for someone to run and manage – and set up – the project completely.

Job spec:
Responsibility for managing a food market stall, including;
  • 3 days of operation Fri-Sat; 1-2 days food prep in addition
  • managing a team of 2-3 staff
  • budget responsibility
  • food purchasing and preparation off site
Full operational responsibilities: 
  • staff training
  • health and safety
  • food hygiene
  • opening & closing procedures
  • cash handling
Additional
  • Menu and service development
You have:
  • chef qualifications/experience,
  • Management experience preferably in a street food and/or outside catering environment.
  • Spark, initiative, drive and determination
  • Thick-skinned, with Sisu and follow-through
  • Great interpersonal skills – a real people person, cheerful even when raining, snowing, too much sun (the market is outside…)
We’re looking to fill this role as soon as possible – so if this sounds like you, get your skates on. You do not need to be Scandinavian to apply for this, but you need to have an understanding about the food – and be a foodie yourself.
Passion and that special entrepreneurial start-up drive goes a long way here, so let it shine through in your application.
Salary: It’s good and you will be rewarded in line with the project’s performance, too. Show us what you’re made of and we will make it worth your while.
Apply to: Rebekka@scandikitchen.co.uk – you must include a cover note and CV and tell us why this role speaks to you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
