Saddleback Farm Shop: Coffee Shop Assistants

  • Hours:  Various Contracts Available
  • Contract Type: 30 hours per week. Permanent.
  • Wages: £9.90 per hour (Real Living Wage)

We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic team players to join us as temporary summer coffee shop assistants at Saddleback Farm Shop. The right people will love working alongside their colleagues, and be excited to offer great customer service during a very busy time for the Farmshop.

Situated on the outskirts of Brightwalton village near Wantage, Saddleback Farm Shop has beautiful views over the adjacent farmland. The shop is stocked with lots of great produce. The butchery sells locally-reared, grass fed beef and locally reared, rare breed lamb and pork. There is also a deli, stocked with items made by hand by Honesty chefs and bakers. There is also an extensive choice of cheese and freshly baked bread is delivered daily. The tea room serves through the day with everything made by the in-store chefs. There is a large outside seating area with a play area for children. Since opening in 2012 Saddleback Farm Shop has worked its way into the heart of the local community and has since continued to provide our customers with locally sourced produce and goods.

Why work with  us, not them?

Our strong community-led values, and people-first approach separate us from our competitors. We are committed to holding ourselves to the highest standards with regards to the environment and sustainability, with all our food made by hand by our incredible team of chefs and bakers utilising fresh, seasonal, local ingredients (where possible) and served to our customers by dedicated, healthy and happy staff. We are Real Living Wage employers.
