HEAD BAKER - PARK ROYAL NW10

We have an amazing job opportunity for an experienced Head Baker! If you have bags of experience working with cake, cupcakes and brownies coupled with a killer eye for detail and a passion for making a "best in class product" we want to hear from you.
THIS ROLE WOULD PARTICULARLY SUIT A TEAM LEADER READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP MANAGING A SMALL TEAM.

Flavourtown is London's leading cake and cupcake bakery with a hard earned reputation for world class cake that tastes even better than it looks, we've been creating Freshly Baked Happiness since 2013 and our business is growing. We've never compromised on our core values of using amazing ingredients to create a best in class product, we've gone from a one man operation to having over thirty staff across our venues BUT our attention to detail and deliciousness still drives everything we do.

Our Park Royal production kitchen is responsible for creating all orders for our online shop! This includes epic cakes, cupcakes, brownies and cookies, all baked in small batches to our exacting Flavourtown standards. This means that our Head Baker is one of the most important people in our whole business with the vital role of bringing everything together from mixing and baking sponges and frostings to handmade caramel, compotes and our amazing brownies and cookies.

You'll be managing a small team of four bakers and making all the good stuff that our decorators need to make each Flavourtown cake taste amazing. You'll be responsible for ensuring Flavourtown brand standards, impeccable food handling and hygiene and running a daily production that's heavily focused on quality.

We're not looking for bread or morning goods bakers so you'll need a proven track record of working with cake (in particular American style moist sponges) and have all of the skills including knowledge of mixing methods and what makes baking work. We have really high standards and the right candidate will too.

We're not looking for shortcuts to make production "easier" so we're looking for someone who is proud of their work and strives to make things better every day, we need bags of personality and a team leader to make production fun and exciting (even when it's been a super busy day)

Your real core skills centre around cake baking and mixing techniques, producing buttercream, Swiss meringue and cream cheese icings along with our award winning brownies and chonky American NYC cookies.

• Level 2 Food Safety leading to Level 3

• Outstanding (fast and efficient) baking skills.

• Specific experience working with a high end cake product.

• Being able to lift up to 25 kilos

• Mad skills! Can you instinctively tell when you have a technical problem on your hands or do you know the exact moment your cake is done? A min too long is the difference between an ok cupcake and an epic moist cupcake.

You'll have some experience of managing a small team and have a keen eye for minimising wastage alongside an ability to always get the best from your team and deliver a world class product. You'll be super tidy, love everything in it's place and you'll be motivated.. You will have huge scope to make changes, suggest new ideas and products and you'll be crazy keen to make this role your own.
