Leicester Coffee House Company is an award winning independent speciality coffee shop and roaster based in Leicester City Centre. We are recruiting for an experienced barista to work in our Granby Street coffee shop.

This is an amazing opportunity for anyone who wants to further their career in the specialty coffee industry and also wants to make their mark in a quality led establishment.

Our coffee roasting business began in 2016 and the coffee shop opened in October 2018. We send our roasted beans across the UK and have a strong base of loyal customers in store and via our online shop. Our continued aim is to provide the best coffee possible and with customers from Leicester and beyond telling us it is the best they have tasted, we are chuffed to be doing pretty well already!

Ideally baristas will have experience in a speciality coffee establishment and wish to take their career further on a busy bar in a growing business. Baristas will be able to support customers’ coffee choices, dial-in a selection of espressos from our in house roastery and work within a clean, professional, organised and structured environment. They will ensure a high quality, friendly customer experience and share our passion in promoting environmental sustainability and social enterprise principles.

Our standards are very high and we recruit people who want to be involved in a growing company with clear goals, standards and a fun working environment.

The barista role starts on £9.50 per hour and increases to above the Living Wage once your probation period is completed and you are promoted to a senior barista role. Baristas will work an average 35 hours per week alongside a determined, passionate and professional team with excellent working conditions in a reputable establishment on some of the best equipment.
