Every one of the people who have worked with us have had great qualities in common – mainly that they’re all great with people, brilliant at what they do – and have their own stories to tell. When we’re looking for someone to join the team, we’re after those qualities. We offer competitive rates of pay, a lovely environment to work in and a lot of free meatballs.

We’re ScandiKitchen and we’re a nice little cafe/deli near Oxford Circus.

We are looking for a Barista to join us as soon as possible. We have a nice Linea 2 group and we serve Monmouth Coffee.

While you will be making lots of lovely coffee, the job also entails serving food to customers, helping out in our deli and being a part of our nice team. We need you to be able to hit the ground running, so experience is really useful.

Essential skills:

  • You make really nice coffee. 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 10 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.
  • Good to have: A Scandinavian language or knowledge of a Scandi language. Not essential, but a connection is good. If you come from elsewhere, we do love if you have been in the UK for a while so you know what it’s like to be homesick (or, if you are from UK, maybe you have lived abroad before?). A lot of our customers are ex-pat Scandies and visit us to get a bit of love from home.
  • 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. Sort of.
  • 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 some weekend work, too.

Please get in touch as soon as possible as interviews and trials are next week and we look for someone to start asap. Send your CV and a cover note telling us why you want to work with us.

Please note this is a full time job, ongoing, permanent.

Bye for now
