Vacancies – Bakery

Baker (Permanent role 32hrs)

The Handmade Bakery is first and foremost a Co-operative in the form of an artisan bakery and cafe in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire. We produce traditionally crafted bread and patisserie that is slowly fermented using organic and local ingredients, with no additional improvers or preservatives.

We are currently looking for a baker to join our lively team.

Some professional baking experience or training is preferred and additional training in our methods will be provided. We are looking for someone with energy, enthusiasm and a passion for real food. You will need to be physically fit and strong as the job requires some heavy lifting.

The hours are 32hrs per week minimum and the working pattern includes weekends and early mornings. The initial hourly rate is £8.80 per hour. Upon a successful probationary period of 6 months you have the opportunity to become a member and then apply to be a director. Being a director enables you to be more involved in the day to day running of the business, making the most of the skills you bring in addition to the baking.

If you think you could be the person that we are looking for then please get in touch using the following details:
