Ethical.

 

 

Here at Corporate Cakery, we have some core values. One of them is ethics, and we make conscious efforts to continuously source ethical ingredients and improve awareness of ethical issues.

From the beginning we have always used free-range eggs and strongly believe that battery farmed eggs should not be around anymore. 

Now it’s Easter time, we thought we would turn our focus onto chocolate eggs – as I’m sure most people will be indulging in a few over the Easter bank holiday weekend!

Become a little happier

 

We want to spread happiness and gratitude, especially around the workplace. There’s always an endless list of to-do lists, targets, goals and challenges. Our mission is to bring more happiness into the world of business, and encourage business owners to show appreciation, spread gratitude, and reward those around you. On 20th March 2017 it’s International Day of Happiness and we’re joining the movement to create more happiness in the world. Starting here.

 

 

On a daily basis, Corporate Cakery is baking up happiness up in the form of cupcakes, cookies, cakes and other baked goodies. Our products aren’t simply for sustenance, but a tasty representation of a business and a gift of gratitude from one person/business to another.

Action for happiness has outlined 10 ways to happier living, and here’s our guide on how you can easily achieve them, from my own unique perspective as a young small business owner.

Corporate Cakery Branded Logo Cupcakes

Corporate Cakery are looking for a freelance baker/cake decorator to join us during this super exciting, high-growth year.

 

Are you a keen baking enthusiast looking for an excuse to bake and earn some extra cash? Are you looking for a rewarding challenge to fill some spare time? If the answer is yes, read on!

 

Our new baker will be responsible for creating Corporate Cakery’s high-quality products. You’ll be rewarded for producing consistent quality goods with an agreed price per product.  

Here are the specifics of what you’ll be doing:

  • Baking products including cupcakes, sponge cakes, cookies/biscuits and traybakes.
  • Cake decorating including making icing toppers, piping buttercream, covering cakes in fondant and hand-piping cookies/biscuits.
  • Packaging & labelling products ready for delivery. Ensuring products are ready to send out to customers in the correct boxes with correct allergen info.
  • Experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes for future release. We welcome your ideas and input, so if you’re creative that’s a bonus!

 

You’ll need to be able to:

  • Bake to a high standard – the ability to follow recipes, meet deadlines and work under pressure is really important.
  • Decorate to a high standard and follow consistent design styles and show attention to detail. You don’t need qualifications but you must prove your skill level and willingness to learn our techniques.
  • Follow food safety regulations. You must have an up-to-date hygiene certificate in level 2 catering  (this can be done online with our recommended provider before you start working with us if you don’t yet have this).
  • Work in our shared commercial kitchen in Cheney Manor, Swindon generally between the hours of 9am-4.30pm Monday to Friday (flexible working as and when required).

 

It’s not essential but would be ideal if you are able to:

  • Hand deliver Swindon based orders & take packages to the local post office. You will need business car insurance to do this and we will cover expenses.

 

To thrive at Corporate Cakery, you must be flexible and willing to work hard. At the beginning you won’t have a fixed schedule or promised number of orders so if you need a full time salary this isn’t for you. We are looking to recruit you as a freelance baker to begin with, but there may be opportunities to become a fixed member of our team with added perks later on.

Most importantly, you must naturally fit into Corporate Cakery! Your values must match ours:

  1. Ethical – you care about the world we inhabit and share the belief that we are here to do good and inspire others to do so
  2. Gratitude – you are happy to do what you love, happy to help others, and have an optimistic view on life
  3. Honesty – you are open and transparent, if you make mistakes you claim them and learn from them, and take responsibility for your own actions.

 

Does this sound like the perfect role for you?

APPLY NOW: Email these three things to info@corporatecakery.com

  • Send us at least 3 photo examples of your work (cakes, cupcakes or cookies).
  • Tell us why you’re perfect for the job (this can be a video, written email or any format you prefer).
  • Full contact details (if you have a CV please send an up-to-date version).

 

Applications are open NOW. Please email us if you want to chat to the team and ask any questions!

CClogo2016
Since the start of this year I’ve been working hard to bring Corporate Cakery into existence, evolving my business from Little Miss Cake Maker. Since I quit my day job to launch my business back in February 2014, I gradually became known in and around Swindon as a specialist in corporate cakes, due to my background and passion for advertising and branding. Over time, it became clear that corporate cakes had a different purpose from general celebration cakes, as well as a whole different customer base, and so deserved a website built for business people that met their exact needs.

Corporate Cakery website home page
 

CorporateCakery.com is the new website tailored to the business world, and although we launched it softly in March 2016, we wanted to smooth out any bugs and continue to add more features before singing and dancing about it. So, with the help of Desk Cowork and many others in my local business community, we held a launch party to officially celebrate Corporate Cakery’s launch.Continue reading
