Team member (cafe/retail)

Application closes: midnight Monday 11th April 2022

Interview date: TBC

Do you enjoy working in a customer facing role?

Are you passionate about vegan food?

Does the opportunity of working for an award winning start-up business excite you?


Then this could be the role for you!

The Quirk Space is a Community Interest Company (CIC) based in Olney, Milton Keynes. What does that mean, we hear you ask? Our sole purpose of existence is to benefit the community. It informs everything we do. Our aim is to create a welcoming space where

there is something of interest for everyone. This can be seen in our values:

  • Dare to be different

  • Judgement free

  • Inspire and support

  • Inclusiveness


The Quirk Space CIC opened in Olney in November 2020 and recently won ‘Best Newcomer 2021’ at the Milton Keynes Food & Leisure awards.


With a vegan café, specialist food retail, design-led retail and a community events programme we pride ourselves on being

a welcoming and judgment free space. We are also dedicated to building a sustainable business.

About the role

We are looking to expand our team with a Team Member (Café/Retail) who will primarily be leading our cafe during the week. Whilst employment will be on a zero hours basis to give both parties flexibility in our growing business, we be able to offer approximately 30+

hours a week to begin with. You will be the face of The Quirk Space for all of our lovely customers. Whether it’s preparing their favourite hot drink, serving some of our delicious food or recommending products in our retail store, you’ll get to develop and uphold customer relationships.

About you

Whilst previous experience in a café environment would be good, it is not necessary as training will be provided. A passion for vegan food, stellar customer service, a nimble attitude and a proactive approach to getting things done are valued much more at The Quirk Space.

What’s in it for you?

  • A competitive hourly pay rate

  • Training and ongoing support

  • Your Birthday off

  • Contribution to pension scheme

  • Staff discount

  • Genuine career opportunities

  • The opportunity to join a growing business where you are valued!
