We are looking for a solid team of skilled baristas to work a range of summer dates over two sites at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Applicants must have experience making high quality coffee in a high-volume capacity, able to keep up excellent standards of customer service while moving as quickly as possible to deliver beautiful drinks. It’s a unique experience – we don’t service any other events with 4 people to a machine, with even more people front and back of house, making 10,000 drinks over four or five days.
We use Victoria Arduino Black Eagle machines and Mythos One / EK43 grinders, using Square Mile coffee and Northiam Dairy milk. Experience with similar equipment and standard of ingredients is essential.
It is vital that our baristas are well presented – the grounds are over 200 years old and host thousands of private members along with the general public, so staff presentation must reflect the professionalism expected from this prestigious venue. Branded shirts will be supplied but individuals must provide black trousers and black shoes, and must be able to remove any jewellery and facial piercings for the events.
This will be our third year at Lord’s, having successfully run two enjoyable seasons with increasing numbers of units across the site. While the club’s standards are high, we have found that service is hugely enjoyable to anyone working at a good pace with a cheerful manner, passionate about delivering quality customer service along with world class coffee.
Rate of pay is above London Living Wage.
Ideally we’d like to hear from people who can do AT LEAST one or both of the 5-day events, but any availability will be considered (see all dates below). We will meet with promising candidates and arrange a trial shift before deciding which applicants are suitable for the role.
