Calling all Barista's.......We want you!!

We are looking for someone as quirky as our café. Has a warped sense of humour. Has shit chat and can make excellent coffee.

Attendant is a former Victorian toilet, built around 1890 and mothballed in the 1960’s; the Attendant was dormant for more than fifty years before being lovingly transformed into one of Europe’s most unique espresso & food bar spaces. We are considered one of the top 10 specialty coffee shops in London.

Bursting onto the scene in 2013, the Attendant has been going from strength to strength. Offering bespoke sandwiches and specialty coffee; it has fast become a favourite in both its home in Fitzrovia and in our more recent openings within Shoreditch & Clerkenwell.

We are currently looking to recruit baristas for Attendant Clerkenwell, Fitzrovia & Shoreditch. Our standards are very high; we seek individuals who want to be involved in a young dynamic company and will bring their own passion, enthusiasm and knowledge to the business.

We want a team player that will fit in with our ethos on quality, hospitality and customer service. We seek someone who is fast, efficient, consistent and clean. Someone who is particular but still able to serve customers, prepare coffee/food quickly and most importantly build a relationship with our new and current customers.

We’re looking for a real coffee geek who knows their stuff and loves working with coffee (obviously) as well as a real foodie. It’s a labour of love at the Attendant!

At Attendant Roastery we believe coffee can be better! We only select green coffee that has a cupping score of 85 and above. We are currently building strong relationships with coffee growers that have amazing products, and who are in turn rewarded for their dedication to quality and consistency.

We believe that each coffee tells its own story. Each is different. Each is Special. A coffee’s flavour is also infused with the place where its grown – local soil, climate, ecosystem, more commonly known as ‘terroir’.

We are able to share this with you through our roasts, whether you prefer the clarity of a single origin filter or the complexity of an espresso. We roast and judge each cup of coffee on the way it makes us feel.

So we're looking for a well-educated coffee nut to assist in the introduction of the new blends and various Single Origins.

Person Specification Essential to role:

  • Familiar with La Marzocco espresso machines
  • Free pour latte art
  • 1-2 years minimum speciality coffee experience
  • Must be punctual, with a professional outlook, able to work under own initiative without supervision
  • Customer service background with drive and enthusiasm to achieve highest levels of customer service.
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills with a high standard of personal hygiene and appearance
  • Must be an enthusiastic team player and be able to work with other colleagues in a dynamic business
  • High energy levels with cheerful disposition and the ability to work under pressure
  • Able to demonstrate attention to detail and follow company procedures
