Job Description:

This is a new role, and another BIG one as we expand.

We are looking for the right person who not only puts the customer first, also all those teammates who they will be responsible for. Not only do we want you to oversee the team, we want you to help expand the business, so this role is going to be perfect if you are a commercially minded people person who knows how to build awesome self-sufficient teams.

  4. Ensure the shopfront is well-stocked with fresh baked goods at all times, coordinating with the bakery team to meet customer demand and minimise waste.
  5. Monitor inventory levels, conduct regular stock counts, and place orders for ingredients and supplies as needed to support daily operations.
  6. Maintain a clean, organised, and visually appealing shopfront, adhering to company standards for cleanliness, hygiene, and product display.
  7. Handle customer enquiries, complaints, and special requests in a professional and courteous manner, striving to resolve issues to the satisfaction of all parties involved.
  8. Implement and enforce food safety and sanitation protocols to ensure compliance with health regulations and uphold the highest standards of food quality and safety.
  9. Prepare sales reports, analyse performance metrics, and identify opportunities for improvement to drive business growth and customer satisfaction.

  • Passion for our brand and a commitment to delivering an exceptional experience for our customers
  • Proven track record of achieving sales targets and driving revenue growth.
  • Knowledge of food safety regulations and best practices for food handling and sanitation.
  • Excellent organisational and multitasking abilities, with the flexibility to adapt to changing priorities and work under pressure.

  • Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment, remaining calm under pressure and maintaining a positive attitude.
