Job Description

I know you'll see the phrases "Fantastic Opportunity" and "Challenging New Role" and "Successful Business" in loads of job adverts and your instinct will be to walk on by as it's the same old story in all the adverts but in this instance WE REALLY DO MEAN IT!!!

Our client is a genuinely growing business in a very strong growth product area. Making artisan bakery products for some really cool corporate customers (and this customer list is growing as I write).

This role is the best of both worlds - you'll be able to keep your hand in with your artisan bakery skills, while at the same time joining the white shirt and tie brigade as you manage the business on a professional level.

Our client needs a professional, skilled Baker who can manage a developing team, understand business forecasts and the impact of these on the daily/weekly production plans, order ingredients, calculate and submit labour figures all while ensuring that only the highest quality of product goes out the door.

Don't be daunted by the above. This is still a small business so if you can learn the fundamentals of the site as it grows you will be able to churn out figures in your head within a year and manage the demands as output grows.

If you were good at maths at school but chose to follow your dream and become a highly skilled artisan Baker then you obviously have the aptitude. There is training in this role for the right person to develop a career in the business side of things.

So, if you can bake delicious, hand-crafted products in a professional bakery environment, and have some evidence of possessing a good head for figures, then get in touch today; we would love to find out more about you!
