Humble Crumble is a fast growing company and we're looking for enthusiastic, professional and detail oriented Crumble Artists to join our team. An interest in baking is essential. Full training will be provided.
Starting salary: £11.05p/h (once fully trained)
Full time or Summer Staff (must be able to work minimum 2 shifts per week)
Location: London, Zone 1
We are looking for kind, inclusive and confident people to join our team. At Humble Crumble we want to encourage you to achieve your potential and offer experiences to learn new skills and to progress into senior roles.
The role is a mixture of Front of House and Kitchen work. We start everyone off in the customer service role and then when you become confident in this space, we'll teach you how to bake our delicious crumbles. So even if you don't have professional baking experience, you can still apply for this role as we will train and support you in becoming a Crumble Artist.
This role is an important one: you may be the first interaction that our customers will have at Humble Crumble and how you guide them through our menu and suggest different flavour combinations will impact their whole crumble eating experience. Being upbeat and giving them a smile goes a long way.
Any Humble Crumble team member will be working in a fast-paced but exciting role. It requires being positive, approachable person with an eye for detail. Customer service is as important as the crumbles we serve, so the successful applicant needs to understand what makes a meaningful customer experience.
You need to be:
A people person - yes, you need to love to chat to our customers, make them feel super welcome and help them make the right crumble decision (although, we don't think there's a ‘wrong’ one)
A crumble LOVER - you love crumble and think it’s THE best dessert in the world. When you eat a crumble you think, ‘what’s missing/how can we make this better’.
A lover of change - we don’t like to sit still at Humble Crumble, we’re always working on what to do next, creating new seasonal specials, how can we improve, what hasn’t the world tasted yet and how can we give it to them.
A multi-tasker - we proudly hand make everything here at Humble Crumble and need someone who can help keep the kitchen running seamlessly during busy service.
Friendly and engaging - our customers are like friends and we love to make them feel welcome. Humble Crumble should feel like home for our staff and customers.
Detail orientated - it's vital that each crumble looks as good as it tastes and in our opinion, there's no such thing as too many toppings!
A lover of a fast paced environment - our amazing customers travel far and wide for our crumbles and will queue for hours (literally) if necessary. This means we need to work quickly and efficiently whilst maintaining our excellent standards.
A passionate foodie - how can you help our customers choose the right (there is no wrong) crumble for their palette? Can you describe flavours for someone who may never have tried our product?
