Job title: Life Changing Bakes – Production Baker 
Location: Witney, also able to travel to Oxford
Salary: £9.90 – £10.24 p/hr depending on experience
Hours: 16 – 32 per week


Yellow Submarine is an award winning charity, supporting people with additional needs and their families. We run two social enterprise cafes, within which we support and train members and prepare them for employment and independence moving into adulthood. Search ‘Yellow Submarine Cafes’ to learn more.

Life Changing Bakes is our most recent enterprise project, providing all baked goods sold in both of our cafes and via our online shop. In order to expand the project, increase our range and provide more training opportunities to our members, we are looking to employ a production baker to assist and ultimately lead the production of all bakes. If you want the opportunity to join a small, supportive and friendly team, where you’ll get to see the impact of the charity’s work first-hand, this is the job for you.

Job Description

We are looking for someone to join our existing baker working within our Witney café to produce our full range of bakes, in order to maintain the increasing demand of both cafes’. On completion of successful training, the candidate would be able to work independently to produce all bakes and will also be able to assist with the development of new products. Initially the role would involve a minimal level of supporting our trainees with additional needs, but there could be the opportunity to take on teaching of baking to our trainees in the near future, if appropriate.

The successful applicant is proactive, can work flexibly and efficiently, as well as having a calm and compassionate nature. A sense of fun is a must!
