Job Opportunities

Baking & Decorating

We are looking for person(s) who would like to work to give this type of work a try, who are good at baking at home, feel that they have something to offer and would like to learn a bit more. It would be excellent if you already have a skill for decorating of cakes. 

Flexible: We can entertain people in a full time / part time capacity (i.e. job sharing). All training will be given by qualified personnel on an ongoing basis.   We’d like to find somebody who is not afraid to take guidance and direction, and can interact with other staff members to make their own job more pleasurable in our friendly working environment.

Bakery Charge Hand

This position entails cleaning, preparation of food trays, processing, storage of deliveries, and operating a HACCP system after training has been given, as well as some ‘gofor’ stuff.  There will be minor bakery work initially with a view to up-skilling in this section over a defined period of time.

Coffee Shop Counter Staff

We are looking for enthusiastic team members to join our Coffee Shop team.  We will provide you with training, a great work environment, variety in your role, regular hours of work and an opportunity to work with friendly and helpful professionals.
