We are looking for part-time cheesemongers and, most importantly, food lovers to join our weekend retail team for 2 days a week across the weekend (Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday). There will also be a number of opportunities to take on extra shifts across our busiest periods of the year. Availability in the run up to Christmas is essential; we ask that part-time mongers chip in with a full 5 day week to help with the Christmas madness! Your training will take place at either our East Dulwich or Borough Market site and as part-time mongers you will likely be retailing across more than one of our retail sites over the course of the year.
An ideal candidate will not only be totally comfortable in a customer facing role but they'll be even more comfortable with the idea of eating and learning about cheese each day. We believe experience behind the cheese counter is the best way to learn about the production, selection and maturation of the products we work with. Through this you'll become confident in pinpointing which cheeses should be going home with each of our lovely customers.
Responsibilities will include:
This role is well suited to an individual looking to balance work in the food industry alongside other interests. We offer a competitive salary, allowing for a short training period, with comprehensive training and good opportunities for progression for an individual who can see a long future in the cheese world. Staff tastings, producer visits and cheese on tap are some of the benefits that come with this role.
So if you're a cheese lover with the potential to thrive in a bustling retail environment then please apply using the form below. Make sure to include a covering letter.
The deadline for applications is 30th November, though we will look to reply to applications as and when we receive them.
