We are looking for an experienced Baker to help lead the bread & pastry offering at our award winning bakery in East Dulwich.
As Head Baker, you’ll be leading a small team of young and enthusiastic bakers and pastry chefs, maintaining the quality of our offering and helping drive the business forward. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of making and baking high quality bread using natural fermentation, as well as laminated and enriched doughs, and some management experience. You will also have a good understanding of the numbers side of the business, including managing orders, GPs and stock control, and be proficient in food safety and HACCP procedures.
Our focus has always been on quality and consistency over volume, which is reflected in the customers we supply (including Neal’s Yard Dairy, La Fromagerie, Duck Soup, The Canton Arms, Frenchie and Brunswick House). You will be working with established formulas that our customers have grown to love, but there is on-going scope for developing new and seasonal products, different ways of working, and forging relationships with suppliers. Aside from the bake shift, the majority of hours are during the day, offering an enviable quality of life for this kind of role.
