Decorating & Small Treats Preparation Assistant
Love & Buttercream is seeking an organized, personable, and enthusiastic team member!
Love & Buttercream is an all-from-scratch bakery, featuring everything from cookies to wedding cakes. We are looking for a friendly, organized, and efficient team member to assist with preparation for daily cake pops, sugar cookies, cakes, and other decorated treats. Our new team member must have a flexible schedule, and be available to work at our location in Birmingham. This is a part time, hourly, position with flexible hours, requiring about 20-30 hours per week, with more hours available closer to the Thanksgiving & Christmas holidays. As our business slows in January, hours will likely be unavailable or significantly reduced, but may become available again in February, but cannot be guaranteed. With the many unknowns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, availability of hours may change depending on changes the bakery is required to make.
1-2 years of experience in the baking industry, or a baking or pastry certificate or degree is preferable. Our new team member should have a great work ethic, be diligent and timely, and have an eye for detail. Love & Buttercream prides itself on creating a team-focused atmosphere. Our new Assistant must be a great team player, and must be able to take direction from our Decorating Department Lead and Manager. We are looking for someone who possesses a wonderful service personality and is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure 100% customer satisfaction.
