We are hiring!

Gigi’s Cafe is looking for an organized people-person to be our Manager! This hands-on position is part front of house and part behind the scenes.

*

The position: 40 hours a week, with a fixed schedule of daytime shifts (you’ll never finish work later than 6pm!). The job can be Monday to Friday or whatever your preference is.

About us: We are a locally owned cafe that aims to create a community-based, friendly atmosphere in Quadra Village. We do some of our own baking and aim to support other local businesses for supplies when possible! We host some events, too.

About you:

You are organized and detail oriented. Important parts of the job are keeping track of products and ingredients, making orders, managing staff, and noticing other small details vital to the business. You’ll have ongoing support from our existing manager/co-owner!

You enjoy creating relationships with customers. You can multi-task and you’re an excellent communicator who can lead one to two other staff during slow and busy periods.

You have leadership experience and coffee experience! The leadership experience could come from anywhere, but experience using an espresso machine is essential!

You have Food Safe Level 1 and Serving it Right (or are willing to get them).

Your Responsibilities:

  • Front of House Management: Delegating tasks to co-workers and jumping in as needed. The position will start out very hands-on behind the counter, so you can familiarize yourself with the business and notice areas for improvement in our day-to-day. Long term, the role can include less customer service tasks–it’s flexible, depending on your and our needs.
  • Behind the Scenes Management: Assisting with bringing in new products (baked goods, drinks, etc.) and tweaking our current offerings, in collaboration with other management. Tracking inventory and working to minimize waste. 

Compensation: $23-$26 (including guaranteed tips of $3/hour), depending on your experience. **Please note pay will be reevaluated after a 3 month period!

If this sounds like a fit for you, please send your resume and a cover letter. We look forward to hearing from you! This posting will be open until we find a suitable candidate.
