I am looking for a baker or apprentice baker to work in my kitchen two days a week: Mondays and Thursdays from 8.30am. (Finishing time will depend on how busy we are each day.)

The successful candidate must love food and working in a kitchen, have a willingness to learn and an excellent ability to follow recipes accurately. Specific baking experience is not required, but is preferable.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is keen to learn more about making and decorating delicious cakes as I am happy to teach you new skills and techniques. Initially you’ll be working alongside me, but once you have shown that you are able to work independently, you will do so.

Pay is likely to be £45 a shift rising to £55 a shift upon successful completion of an initial 4 week training period (8 shifts) during which you will receive training and instruction. Shifts will always start at 8.30am and finish when the day’s work is complete. This varies but efficient bakers can expect to finish within 8 hours. This is a freelance position and so you will be required to invoice me fortnightly and take responsibility for paying your own tax where applicable.
There may be future opportunities for more shifts in both cake baking/decorating and catering. Proficiency in Maths and English is essential.

To apply, please email your CV and a covering letter via Gumtree setting out your previous experience and interest in cookery/baking and when you could start.

Telephone interviews will be held for successful applicants. At least two references will be required.

Deadline for applications: 4th February 2012
