Barista 14.00 per hour London

Craft, Creativity and Community – we are Company of Cooks! These are our values, and they go far beyond corporate waffle. In fact, they set the tone for everything we do. Company of Cooks have been working with some of the UK’s most cherished venues since 1996, delighting customers and clients alike with great food and drinks, brilliant service and an absolute focus on the details that make good restaurants, cafes and bars, great ones. In October 2019 the company was brought into the CH&CO family. The completion of the deal saw Company of Cooks become the group’s go-to operators in heritage and performance venues, art galleries and destinations. We are excited to be recruiting for a Barista based at Southbank Centre Café.

Key responsibilities:

Greet customers as they enter.
• Give customers drink menus and answer their questions regarding ingredients.
• Take orders while paying attention to details (e.g. preferences of coffee blend, dairy, and sugar ratios).
• Making drinks accurately and in line with a customer’s order. You’ll have to ensure you adhere to your coffee shop’s recipe and make the drink in line with your customer’s specific requirements. A great coffee starts with a great espresso, and if preparing a coffee-based drink, you’ll need to follow some essential steps to create the perfect espresso.
• Serve beverages and prepared food, like cookies, pastries and muffins.

A Honest Approach, A Passionate Team, Quietly Confident

Company

Company of Cooks was formed in 1996 to run the catering services at Kenwood House on behalf of English Heritage. At the time, others said it set the standard for outdoor public space food service. Time Out awarded it a Red Star in their Annual Restaurant Guide and named it one of the top places to eat, then virtually unheard of for a visitor attraction catering operation.

The business grew organically from these origins, securing further catering contracts within The Royal Parks, RHS Garden Wisley, the Southbank Centre, Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery, among others.
