Hello budding barista’s!

The Canvas Crew is looking for our newest member to join us at our busy Vegan Cafe and Social Enterprise on Brick Lane, Shoreditch. We are passionate about community, veganism, great coffee and fresh home made products! Not Vegan? Don’t worry, this is not essential, but what we value most is an open mind and the right skill set to help support our work.

The current position is for a part-time barista, av. around 3 shifts per week.

Experience is not essential, but desired and will benefit you when working here.

The ideal applicant will also have ambitions to progress in the industry, growing into leadership roles.

Things you should consider straight away:

  • We are a close-knit team here at the canvas, but due to our staff scheduling, there will be times during every shift where you are   working alone on the shop front( never in the evenings). You must be comfortable to work independently when needed.
  • Your shifts will vary between weekdays and weekends from 9,30 till 23,30 and it is important that you have  availability at weekends as at least one of your shifts will be during this time.
  • Our hourly rate is £9 per hour(some evening shifts during the events are £10,85 per hour), this may increase in time as the business grows (Ruth, the owner, is always trying to reward and support staff when possible). We pay on a monthly basis.
  • Every shift you are entitled to a 20min paid break and one hot staff meal chosen from our delicious vegan menu (room for creativity is always encouraged!)
  • We work closely with the homeless community, and we value them immensely, however there are challenges that can come from this, and so you should be confident in your ability to handle such social situations.

If these points resonate with you, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can look to get you in for an interview so you can find out more about what we do.
