Staff Wanted

Do you like coffee? Do you like cake? Do you like kisses?

Talk about the perfect combo of good things in life! We are bringing it to the high street.

Eagerly anticipated by a wide community, Coffee, Cake & Kisses is a fusion of a cafe, a shop and an events space, with relationships and people at its heart. We are the place to build all kinds of relationships, and to explore all aspects of them. The cafe is accessible, inclusive and welcoming of all genders, sexualities, relationship models and lifestyles.

Our relationship-focused approach extends to our staff - we want them to have balance in their lives, with work as a fun, joyful and fulfilling part of it.

To this end, we are looking for fantastic staff - devoted, wholehearted, and fun.

You need to be highly lovable, of course: well-groomed, attitude-free, and totally devoted to giving our customers the best experience that there is.

You are welcome to your quirks and peculiarities - after all, that's what makes you a unique, one-of-a-kind human being. All manner of folks are welcome; unusual hair colour, rings, piercings, tattoos and different body types are all fine.

You will start above minimum wage, and your pay will get better with every stage of training you complete.

We recruit for "mmm" and your ability to provide such, in one way or another.

Stage One: Our straightforward application process, which should not take longer than 15-30 minutes to complete.

Stage Two: Assuming you meet the criteria, we will get back to you with any questions and/or to arrange an interview.

Stage Three (the final one!): We will of course need to see you in action, walking the walk. All being well, we will invite you to join us for a Taster Day. It's great for you, too - it gives you a chance to try your hand at what would become your daily routine, and a taste of what working with us may be like :)

The sky's the limit - you are joining us at an exciting time, when rapid and significant promotion opportunities exist for the right individuals.

We have great speciality coffees and a 10-year working relationship with Monmouth Coffee Company (who first introduced us to the world of fine coffee and train our staff). We need experienced baristas who will do justice to their beans, and also work with other quality guest roasts.

We are particularly keen to hear from experienced individuals looking for more responsibility and freedom in their job role, who could step up and take the helm as the Coffee, Cake & Kisses head barista. We have a couple of tricks up our sleeve not yet done anywhere else and are looking for people to do them with. You just might find yourself pushing the boundaries of coffee-making, with a brand that does the same.

If you can bake a cake, you can usually put together a sandwich, right?

That’s the way we look at our varied food roles, where you will certainly never get bored.

Typical duties include basic home baking. Nothing too scary: flapjacks, loaves, brownies, etc. You will of course have recipes to follow, and receive training.

Since few people want cakes at lunch time, you will also need to be able to make sandwiches, salads, pastas and suchlike.

You must be genuinely keen to help people discover what makes them tick, and help them find a perfect match, in all things.
