Head Baker

The Glad Cafe
1006a Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow G41 2HG

Posted: 13/04/2021

Deadline: 10/05/2021

Compensation: £10 per hour

Paid Full-time

Job description

We're really excited to announce that Crossmyloof Bakery at The Glad cafe will be opening this summer and we're looking for a talented Head Baker to join us! We are looking for someone who can help us establish a community bakery in the Southside, train a small team, and have creative freedom in the products that the bakery will make.

The Glad Cafe is situated where the original Crossmyloof Bakery once stood. Established in 1840 by Neale Thomson of Camphill, this local philanthropist undertook not only to provide local workers with nutritious and affordable bread, but also to improve their working conditions and rights… we were inspired!

We want to find someone who has a real passion for baking and who has previous experience of making sourdough breads, as well as ideally having a good knowledge of other baked products. This will be a hands-on role and we're looking for a talented baker who also has the skills to lead a small team and establish a great culture in the bakery while getting it all up and running. It is a big challenge to establish a new bakery, but this is a really exciting opportunity with lots of scope for growth for the right person!

The starting wage for this role is £10 per hour (with the aim to increase this as the business grows) and it is a full time position. Shifts and working days to be discussed at the interview.

The deadline for applications is 10th May and the intended start date for the right person is mid June (exact date open to discussion).
