JOB VACANCY: Bakers wanted

Join us!

We have an opening for a baker to join our small team here at The Thoughtful Bread Company.

For those that aren’t familiar with our setup, we are a bakery based right in the heart of the city of Bath, with a bakery shop, cafe, bakery and school all under one roof. We keep ourselves busy as everything we sell is made here, from scratch.

We pride ourselves on championing the very best local producers right the way through from the pastries we make to the fillings we prepare for our unique range of sandwiches and savoury treats. And when we aren’t sourcing locally we are bartering with our customers or foraging to fill our larders.

The job would suit someone with existing experience of working in a bakery. Particularly, someone who is multi-skilled as on our shifts we will work the doughs, be on the table (or at the table more like) and manning the oven as well.

Experience of slow fermentation including sourdoughs and poolish, hand moulding and working cleanly and efficiently will all be positives in your application.

You would be working alone as well as alongside the owner and head baker, and above all working at Thoughtful Bakery would give you the chance to play a very important role within the business.

The focus at Thoughtful is very much on quality over quantity so an interest in producing small batches of excellent product, interesting and original, as well as the classics, rather than large volumes is a must.

Shifts vary throughout the week, with most of them starting at 2am, some earlier on the tail end of the week as it gets busier.
Very competitive rates of pay, dependent on experience.

Please email a copy of your CV, AND covering letter detailing more about you to duncan@thethoughtfulbreadcompany.com
