Full Time Barista

Stockbridge, Hampshire

We are looking for a barista with at least one years experience in the specialty coffee industry. The role is 40 hours per week working either Sunday to Thursday or Tuesday to Saturday in our new Stockbridge store, starting at £9 per hour.

Being a Barista isn’t all just smashing out great shots and amazing latte art (although that’s a large part of it!), it’s about providing excellent customer service and ensuring everyone who walks in the door feels comfortable and welcomed.

 
Who we're looking for 

Members of the Kudos team should be friendly, confident and personable. Above all, you must provide outstanding customer service. As well as keeping the shop clean and tidy at all times, it is just as important that the team are clean and organised. You are literally the face of the business, so your appearance, your attitude and your behaviour must be of the highest standard at all times.

Kudos is not just about great tasting coffee, it’s about a fantastic experience. Customers should feel like part of the family and enjoy their whole visit from the moment they walk in to the moment they leave. It will be your job to ensure that happens.

As a barista you will be required to ensure that the coffee tastes outstanding all the time and be knowledgeable on brew methods, flavours and all drink types.

You must be able to demonstrate an understanding of brew ratios and how to dial in a grinder. An understanding of taste sensory would be an advantage, but not necessary. 

 

Duties will include

  • Welcoming customers and taking orders
  • Dialling in the coffee throughout the day
  • Preparing and serving food and drinks
  • Running table service
  • Clearing of tables and general cleaning
  • Helping set up/close down at beginning/end of day
  • Basic food prep

Final thoughts

 

There will be the opportunity to further your barista skills, whilst completing both internal training and trips to our roasters, The Roasting Party, in Winchester.

Whilst getting the job done well is important to us, we also want our staff to enjoy coming to work and provide a fun environment. A uniform will be provided and benefits include free drinks and 50% off food whilst on shift, and discounted drinks and food when off shift.

To apply please email theteam@kudoscoffee.com with a copy of your CV and a bit about yourself. Thanks and good luck!
