Christmas Gingerbread Assistant - Part time
I’m looking for a super enthusiastic assistant to help me during Peak Gingerbread Season (Oct-Dec). The build up to Christmas is always the most fun/most busy time for me and I need someone really reliable who’s up for the challenge of making everyone’s gingerbread dreams come true in my small kitchen-studio in East London!
You’ll be calm under pressure with a positive attitude, great attention to detail, and be generally excited about Christmas, gingerbread and baking. Basically I’m looking for a fab all-rounder to get stuck into churning out those sweet slabs of gingerbread, but also able to assist with other aspects of the business as needed.

Stock taking and ordering materials/ingredients as needed
Making large quantities of dough and baking hand-cut components to a consistently high standard
Ensuring hygiene standards are maintained
Assisting with Instagram, Pinterest, blog, photo shoots and other ad hoc duties when not baking
£10.55/hr (London Living Wage)
