Careers

We’re a growing food business in the heart of the community we serve, and we are looking to grow our team. Come and join us in sharing our love of all things food, drink and conviviality.

Blake’s Kitchen is a deli, bakery and café in the small Cotswold village of Clanfield. We are passionate about serving great quality food and drink to our customers. We focus on exceptional coffee, fresh in-house made bread & cakes, interesting salads and tasty sandwiches and snacks. We embrace freshness of ingredients, and love to use local artisan suppliers where we can.

Let us know if you have experience; but attitude and mindset are more important to us. Positive, friendly, genuine, attention to detail and team & customer focus are characteristics that will definitely impress us.

If you are passionate about food & drink, and enjoying it with people, we would love to hear from you: daniel@blakeskitchen.com

Current Opportunities

Barista / Deli Team Member

Baristas take pride in interacting with customers and making fantastic quality drinks with our specialty coffee. You will need to be passionate about coffee, and champion our brand standards, creating an engaging, positive atmosphere with the team. You will need to be able to work cleanly, calmly and efficiently. With your knowledge and passion, you will aim to turn coffee drinkers into coffee lovers.

Whilst coffee is your thing, you will need to take the same care and interest over every product you serve from our range. This may also include preparing food and drink from our deli range for customers to eat in or take away. When you visit Blake’s Kitchen you will recognise our coffee and deli bar is the focal point of our business. You will need to thrive on being centre stage, making sure every customer receives a great welcome and smile.

As well as all that you will need to take responsibility for ensuring our bar and shop is clean, well stocked and ready for service at all times. We are a small business, so being flexible in what you are happy to get involved in will be essential.

Cook / Kitchen Team Members

We have a range of opportunities in our kitchen that would suit all levels. Whatever your experience, the thing you will need before walking through our kitchen doors is a passion for food, and making people happy through food. You will need to care about and take pride in the quality of every product that leaves our kitchen. We will make sure you have great quality ingredients to work with, and you will be making everything from scratch.

You will need to be prepared to work hard in a fast-paced environment and to work well in a team. You will need to play your part in managing food costings, profit and waste margins. And finally, keeping our kitchen spotless is really important to us; you will need to help us keep it looking that way.

We are a small business, so being flexible in what you are happy to get involved in will be essential.
