If you get excited about challenging the 'norm' and you can bring together a variety of bold, imaginative flavours that the naughty public will thank you for... WE WANT YOU!

Yes, there is a definitive need for you understand what is required in producing these enchanting treats, but you have to see the opportunity for what it really is... a young, ambitious and unshackled business that can grow, develop and flourish with you firmly on-board; driving and benefiting from this period of growth has to get you wriggling in your seat and chomping at the bit!

If you can inspire, manage, change, adapt, guide and motivate those around you, and impart your joy and passion for naughty baked goodness - get the CV to me quick. Brownie tasting at interview is compulsory!!!
