Work With Us

Part Time Staff

Bakery Operatives: we occasionally need qualified bakers and chefs to assist and undertake cover / holiday duties. Candidates will have a proven track record and industrial experience in artisan baking. The bakery is a hard working, but a friendly environment with lots of potential to develop working alongside a talented team.

Retail Staff: we are looking for adaptable, friendly customer-focused staff, preferably with some previous experience of food retail. We offer a friendly informal atmosphere to work in with opportunities for development. Willingness to learn about our fantastic ranges is essential and we’ll give you a chance to work in professional environment and also get some exposure to the inner sanctum baking environment.

Training Opportunities

We can also offer short term training opportunities for young unemployed individuals wanting to get into the trade. No particular qualifications are required, but you will need to demonstrate a passion for food, and a minimum literacy and numeracy (there are many instructions to follow, measurements to be taken and calculations to be made). We’re up to speed right now, but if interested leave your details with us including a short statement of what motivates you.

Volunteers

Volunteers help with deliveries and markets, but our plan is to develop outreach work into the community – proselytising the wider adoption of superior artisan bread (it is easily made at home too). Contact Chloe at shop@thebakerydunbar.org in the first instance.
