Join Our Team

We’re an independent business, so we have a lot of scope for creativity and adaptation of new ideas, whether it’s with beer, brew, or bread. Over time, but especially in our second year in business, we anticipate that our menus will change, our suppliers will mushroom, and our customers will grow.

We want our team to be at the heart of that growth, to nourish the brand from the inside out, and be happy and true ambassadors of The Craftsman and all that it stands for. So we’re searching for coffee, beer and food enthusiasts to join our inaugural team.

If you share our passion for all things craft, then we’d love to hear from you. If you don’t see a role below that suits you, but you think you’d be right for us, let us know why you should work at The Craftsman.

It’s an exciting time for us. It could be an exciting time for you.
