About Cycle 360 

We are an independent business, where everyone works together to achieve the overall Cycle 360 mission: To inspire, fuel adventure and introduce people to the freedom of cycling.

About the role

As Barista you will have experience working in a similar role, love coffee and completely thrive under pressure. We are looking for someone that is organised, cool-headed, loves efficiency and can contribute to ensuring Cycle 360 is a vibrant and enjoyable working environment for everyone, all while delivering excellent service to our customers.

We take coffee very seriously, so as Barista, you will be expected to deliver high-quality hot drinks in an efficient way whilst also working on the cafe floor to get to know our customers better, too. Training is always provided and experience isn’t absolutely necessary but previous employment working as a barista is desirable as it’ll speed up the internal training process.

Working alongside the Head Barista, and other Cafe Assistants, you will report into the Front of House Manager and work together with the rest of the team to ensure a seamless operation for our customers seven days a week.

This is a full-time role working 37.5 hours a week across Monday to Sunday with two days off during the week. We operate an upfront rota system where you know your shifts in advance.

Key responsibilities include (but are not limited to):

  • Preparing and serving quality drinks: Expertly preparing and serving a variety of coffee drinks following our own established recipes and standards
  • Customer Service: Providing friendly, attentive, and personalised customer service, greeting customers warmly, taking orders accurately, and ensuring a positive customer experience
  • Quality Control: Ensuring the highest standards of quality and consistency in every coffee drink, paying attention to factors such as grind size, extraction time, milk texture, and presentation
  • Team Collaboration: Working collaboratively with your cafe team members, kitchen staff, and managers, to ensure operational efficiencies across the whole cafe

The above responsibilities reflect a barista’s role at Cycle 360, as a key member of the cafe team, responsible for working alongside our head barista in ensuring delivery of high-quality coffee and exceptional customer service while contributing to the overall success of Cycle 360’s cafe!

What Cycle 360 can offer you:

While we expect our team members to be hardworking, flexible and professional, we do like to create an environment where we can have fun while we work!
