Full time, permanent £25kpa
1 year management in F&B environment
The De Beauvoir Deli Co is a fine food store and cafe, on the Hackney-Islington border, open 7 days a week. We offer a wide range of produce and ready-to-eat food to eat in or takeaway, much of which is produced in-house in our on-site kitchen and production kitchen down the road. The grocery offering includes an impressive cheese and charcuterie counter, fresh vegetebles, meat and fish, wine, spirits and beers, daily fresh bread, and much much more.
In the cafe, we serve Monmouth coffee, homemade savouries and a daily changing seasonal salad bar, as well as sandwiches and an array of sweet pastries and cakes.
The shop can be very busy at times and it takes attentive management to make sure customers are properly taken care of while shelves are kept stocked, deliveries received and tasks delegated to staff.
We are looking for a Shift Manager to join our team in a full time role across five shifts each week. Working under our GM, they will be expected to manage the shop and a small team in her absence, including goods-receiving, merchandising, basic ordering as well as opening and closing duties. In addition, all staff are required to prepare hot drinks, serve on the deli counter, and serve customers from the till and at table.
Applicants should have a minimum of one year's management experience in a food and beverage environment, including good barista know-how. They should have a keen interest in fine food with some existing knowledge of artisan food and drink production. The successful candidate will show that they are calm under the pressure of a busy shop whilst being able to delegate tasks and impress with their customer service. They will demonstrate common sense and initiative with problem solving and, above all else, show a positive can-do attitude.
Applications should be submitted via email only and include a covering note along with a CV

August starting date
Full time, permanent
This August, we're losing our Head Chef to sunny Los Angeles, and will be promoting our Sous Chef to her position, so we're recruiting his replacement. We have two kitchens servicing our shop (one onsite) and a team of 7 including sandwich makers and KPs. Almost all our food is pre-made, so there is no service, other than sandwiches, which are made by dedicated sandwich makers. Our homemade range consists of British deli classics such as scotch eggs, sausage rolls, quiches, escallops and a seasonal salad bar, as well as a large pastry range. In winter months, we also offer soup and a hot dish each day.
This role will be split between the onsite deli kitchen and the offsite production kitchen, working 9am-5pm, five shifts a week including one at the weekend. As Sous Chef, you will be in charge of your kitchen, managing a small team, and be responsible for salad, quiche, hot dish and soup creation, as well as cooking off scotch eggs and escallops during shifts at the deli. Shifts at the production kitchen will include baking and own-label preserving.
This position should appeal to someone looking to work in a small friendly team, without the normal stress or unsociable hours of kitchen work
