05.07.12 - Bartenders

Bartenders, we need you.

To smile, to help, to serve.

From bottled beer to bubbly, and from cold ciders and perrys to hot chocolates, here at Canteen we take our drinks very, very seriously.

That means you’ll have to be as skilful at making coffee as you are at preparing our uniquely British cocktails, such as our Cockney Cobbler.

Not only that, you’ll be adept in blending helpfulness, enthusiasm and a killer smile to create sparkling customer service.

All our drinks have been hand picked for very special reasons.

So for example we serve coffee by Union Hand Roasted, a small, east London-based company dedicated not only to making the finest Arabica brew, but also to supporting coffee growing communities in remote areas of the world and investing in sustainable livelihoods and farming practices.

And we think that how you serve drinks as special as this it is just as important as how they are produced – with great care and skill.

If you possess this skill, then we want to hear from you.

Send your CV to jobs@canteen.co.uk, writing ‘bartender job application’ in the subject line.

And if we like what we see, then we’ll want to meet you in person.

Thanks for reading – and we hope to hear from you soon.

Discover the perks.

If you’re confident and positive, with a warm smile and an even warmer personality, then we need you – this is more important than experience and training – we can offer you that.

You’ll be part of a great team that enjoys good benefits and chances to progress within the company, if that’s what you want to do.

Our food and drink menus are incredibly varied and change with the season, so it’s a great chance to learn a lot about of different ingredients, something that will make you a very interesting friend, partner or work colleague, wherever you want to go next.

We have branches in Spitalfields, Baker Street, Southbank and Canary Wharf, so there’s even more variety there, as well, so we can promise you won’t get bored.

Your English obviously needs to be first rate and chances are you’ll be passionate about food, making customers happy, and about getting things right.

And you may not be a Great British food nut right now, but we certainly hope that, over time, you’ll begin to share our passion for the highest quality ingredients, as well as preparing all our food fresh on site.

Please check again you match the kind of person we’re looking for, then email us – quick – at jobs@canteen.co.uk, writing ‘waiter/waitress job application’ in the subject line.
