About Dougies Goodies Bakery:

At Dougies Goodies Bakery, we're all about spreading joy through delicious treats! From mouthwatering pastries to custom cakes that make every celebration extra special, we're passionate about creating memorable moments for our customers.

Job Description:

Do you love the tradition of baking from scratch? Have been loving your craft for more than +5 years? If your answer is yes, then we want to chat to you about joining us in our awesome, state of the art kitchen and cake factory. Working alongside our famous team, we are looking you to compliment us with your skills as a baker. You will know what it takes to get the job done and the dedication needed.

  2. Monitor baking processes, including temperature and cooking times, to ensure that baked goods are cooked to perfection and meet our quality standards.
  3. Creatively decorate and finish baked goods and custom cakes, adding artistic touches and attention to detail to enhance their visual appeal.
  4. Coordinate with other bakery staff to ensure timely production and delivery of baked goods, communicating any special requests or requirements.
  5. Maintain cleanliness and organisation in the bakery kitchen, including equipment, workstations, and storage areas, following food safety and hygiene standards.
  6. Assist with inventory management, including monitoring ingredient levels, ordering supplies, and rotating stock to ensure freshness.
  7. Stay updated on current baking trends, techniques, and ingredients, and incorporate new ideas and innovations into our bakery's offerings.
  8. Collaborate with bakery management to develop new recipes and menu items, contributing your creativity and expertise to the bakery's continued success.
  9. Provide exceptional customer service, engaging with customers to answer questions, make recommendations, and ensure their satisfaction with our Goodies.
  10. Uphold company policies and procedures, including health and safety regulations, to maintain a safe and positive working environment for all staff members.

Qualifications

  • Strong knowledge of baking techniques, methods, and ingredients, with the ability to follow recipes and instructions accurately.
  • Creativity and artistic flair, with the ability to decorate and finish baked goods and custom cakes to a high standard.
  • Attention to detail and a commitment to quality, with a passion for creating delicious and visually appealing treats.
  • Ability to work efficiently in a fast-paced environment, managing multiple tasks and deadlines while maintaining high standards of quality.
  • Excellent communication and teamwork skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with other bakery staff.
  • Flexibility to work a variety of shifts, including early mornings, evenings, weekends, and holidays, as needed.
  • Physical stamina and the ability to stand for extended periods and lift and move heavy trays and equipment as needed.
