Retail Cheesemongers

Neal's Yard Dairy
Borough Market, London

Posted: 8 Mar 2023

Deadline: 21 Apr 2023

Compensation: £9,900 per annum (pro-rated)

Paid Part-time Permanent


Job description

Are you looking for a job that requires you to eat cheese all day? Would you like to learn more about our mission to improve British cheese and become part of it? Are you passionate about good food and great service? Then we would like to hear from you!

We’re looking for two enthusiastic Cheesemongers to join our Retail team on a permanent basis from mid-April. The successful candidates will mainly be based in our Borough Market shop, and could be requested to also work in our other shops located in Bermondsey, Covent Garden and Islington – with the possibility of occasional off-site work at markets and events. 

The position requires a full 9-hour shift per day and regular weekend work. We would initially be able to offer 2 days per week, ideally moving to full time as business picks up in December. 

We are looking for positive, energetic people who enjoy the buzz and hard work of a busy shop environment. You will be sales and service focused. Though cheese experience would be an advantage, it’s not a necessity. Any retail or hospitality experience would also put you in good stead for the work.


  • Full weekend availability (the position would involve working every Saturday AND every other Sunday)
  • Available to start Mid-April
  • Full-time availability 1st-24th of December inclusive


  • An annual salary of £9,900 (pro-rated)
  • Full on-the-job training
  • The makings of a delicious lunch every day
  • A steady supply of fresh bread and cheese (of course!) as well as tea and coffee
  • A generous staff discount is offered to all employees including our seasonal team
