Assistant Manager

We’re ScandiKitchen and we’re a nice cafe/deli near Oxford Circus. We’re a primarily lunch time café and we serve food to ex pat Scandies and locals alike – lots of open sandwiches, salads, meatballs and cakes.
Our Annie is going to continue her studies so we are looking for a new Assistant Manager for our café to start end August (at the latest but we can do earlier). This role is primarily about people management on a day to day basis. You will work closely with our Café manager and Head Barista to ensure the daily shifts are run smoothly and our customers and team are well looked after. You will also be very active on the coffee side of things (we have a nice Linea 2 group and we serve Monmouth Coffee).

Essential stuff:

  • You have good people management experience
  • You have experience of working in a café/restaurant environment
  •  You make really nice coffee. You care deeply about the coffee and how to make it.
  • You have brilliant interpersonal skills.
  • Proactive – you get on with things, you have common sense.
  • Logic and problem solving skills are top.
  • Above all, you’re a team player and you know how to push your team to be the best it can be.
  • Great spoken and written English.

Good to have:

• A Scandinavian language or knowledge of a Scandi language. Not essential, but a connection to our Northern lands, in some form, is good.
• Passionate promoter of all things Hygge and Fika.
• Any extra experience or knowledge of retail and merchandising is a definite plus.
• You can stand ABBA on repeat. In fact, you welcome it.

The cafe is open daily, so the shifts are either open (7:30 start) or closing (latest finish is 20:00). We are open 7 days a week, so there is some weekend work, too. This role is full time and is expected to start mid to end of August and continue on a permanent basis (minimum commitment time is 6 months).
The pay is in line with experience – this is a salaried role at approx £19,000 per annum
based on a full-time schedule. Private Healthcare Insurance is offered after a qualifying period.
