Assistant Artisan Baker
Who we're looking for:
We’re looking for an Assistant Artisan Baker with some experience in a commercial environment. You need to have some skills in traditional bread making, both doughs and techniques, including hand moulding. It would be useful to have good cooking and food experience in general. You need to be personable, presentable and tidy as our kitchen/oven is very much front of house. All of these skills are important, but you’ll also need a thirst for learning, a tendency towards perfection and an ability to pick things up quickly.
Reporting into the Head Baker, your team will be responsible for the preparation of a wide variety of breads, along with all other toppings/fillings for the products we sell. You will be expected to contribute ideas to product development creating new, innovative and seasonal products throughout the year. Your enthusiasm for baking will show in the extent to which you read and explore around the subject, questioning and improving all the time. You will be reporting into the Head Baker, and working alongside two seasonal kitchen staff in your team for the summer. At times you will deputise for the Head Baker on their days off, taking responsibility for the decisions that need to be made. You will be working five days a week in low season, and six in high, with good hours allowing time in the afternoons to hit up the beach!
Team activities, legendary parties, free food when working, 50% discount at all sites when not working, cookery schools and training to improve your skills, personal/team reward schemes, 25 days holiday, and the famous Stoned uniform that so many dream of wearing.
Stoned is a wood fired food company dedicated to producing the highest quality food possible, in a visual, engaging way, whilst having a load of fun. Over the last 3 years we’ve built our reputation operating pop-up sites and this is our first permanent premises of what we plan to be many - it’s a very exciting time to get involved. The venue is a take-out or eat-in and will offer pastries and breads throughout the morning, ‘sandwiches’ (not actual sandwiches) at lunchtime and pizzas in the evening. We’re based on the coast in North Devon so this could also be an exciting move for you if you are looking for a lifestyle change.
How to apply/Deadlines:
The venue opens in May, but we’ll need you with us by mid-April to get the kitchen tested and ready, as well as time for product development and training with front of house crew. Please submit a CV and a description of why you think you’re suitable for this role by the end of February. We will then invite successful applicants to a first round of interviews involving some practical work, and following this a final decision will be made. Salary £15k.
