Head Artisan Baker for Stoned, North Devon
Stoned is a wood fired food company dedicated to producing the highest quality food possible, in a visual, engaging way, whilst having a load of fun. Over the last 3 years we’ve built our reputation operating pop-up sites and this is our first permanent premises of what we plan to be many - it’s a very exciting time to get involved. The venue is a take-out or eat-in and will offer pastries and breads throughout the morning, ‘sandwiches’ (not actual sandwiches) at lunchtime and pizzas in the evening. We’re based on the coast in North Devon so this could also be an exciting move for you if you are looking for a lifestyle change.
You will be responsible for the preparation of a wide variety of breads, along with all other toppings/fillings for the products we sell. Product development will also be key to your role, creating new, innovative and seasonal products throughout the year. Supplier appointments and ingredient quality standards will be within your remit in order to maintain the high standards we have set. Working collaboratively and positively with them is as important as the commercial arrangements that are in place. Reporting to you will be a full time Assistant Baker and a further two seasonal kitchen staff in your team for the summer. You report directly to the Stoned Founder, Tom, and will join the Management Team to contribute to the overall running of the business, sometimes presenting to and meeting with our Investment Board. You will be working five days a week in low season, and six in high, with good hours allowing time in the afternoons to hit up the beach!
Team activities, legendary parties, free food when working, 50% discount at all sites when not working, cookery schools and training to improve your skills, personal/team reward schemes, 25 days holiday, and the famous Stoned uniform that so many dream of wearing.
- Full time.
- Permited to work in the UK
- We’re looking for an Artisan Baker with a minimum 3 years of experience in a busy commercial environment. You need to have extensive skills in traditional bread making, both doughs and techniques, including hand moulding. You’ll also need to be a capable pastry chef, as well as having good cooking and food experience in general. Experience working with a wood fired oven would be an advantage, but not essential. You need to be personable, presentable and tidy as our kitchen/oven is very much front of house. Being calm and friendly also just makes for a happier environment!
£25k+ depending on experience
The venue opens in May, but we’ll need you with us by mid-April to get the kitchen tested and ready, as well as time for product development and training with front of house crew. Please submit a CV and a description of why you think you’re suitable for this role by the end of February. We will then invite successful applicants to a first round of interviews involving some practical work, and following this a final decision will be made. Salary £25k+ depending on experience.
