The cheese shop offers you the opportunity to learn and taste constantly. It is a place where the joy of food and the diligent effort it takes to know and sell cheese go hand in hand. Not only are we dedicated to a positive and welcoming environment, we are committed to the craftsmanship and the integrity of good food.
We provide extensive training and support; however the following demonstrated qualities are integral to you being the successful candidate:
• Self-Motivation: the character and motivation to remain alert and active in your work, no matter the task and physical nature of the work.
• Listening skills: A lot of what we do is learned by experience and by listening. Most of the learning curve has to do with adjusting to the thought-processes and priorities of a fast-paced cheese and charcuterie shop.
• Ability to work well with others: You must be adaptable and understanding toward others, able to work smoothly on a team.
• Work clean, be friendly. We value our employee’s professionalism and we believe that work must be a rewarding experience.
• Fluency in spoken and written English
You will learn:
