The Flour Station is an artisan bakery baking fresh sourdough breads and traditional pastries every day of the year for delivery to some of the finest cafes, restaurants and delis across London. We are in the midst of something of a revolution when it comes to good food and, in particular, real bread. As one of the leading artisan bakeries in London, The Flour Station is at the forefront of that movement and we need more ambassadors!
Our Core Values
We value simplicity and hope that our staff enjoy themselves whilst working hard. We ask everyone to pull together, come up with great ideas and adapt to change in order to grow with the business for the future.
You’ll be introducing our fresh bread and pastries with passion and enthusiasm to chefs and food buyers across London and beyond.
We pride ourselves on making a premium quality product and offering a high level of service to all our customers. In our experience, people are only too glad to be introduced to the range, so it’s more a question of getting in touch and making people aware, than 'cold calling/hard sell’!
Ideally you’ll have experience of selling and serving customers but not necessarily in a business development context. Primarily we are looking for people who are passionate about food and restaurants.
We are all now bread obsessed, of course, but initially we came together through a love of real food in general rather than bread in particular so we don’t require anyone to have extensive technical baking knowledge. A few days in the bakery and you’ll be hooked anyway.
You will certainly be efficient and organised. Finding a great restaurant that loves our bread is the 'easy’ part but doing the 'back office’ work is crucial when it comes to actually bringing them on board as a new account. You will be responsible for checking their viability as a potential customer, selecting suitable samples to complement their menu/offering, providing them with all the information they need in order to make swift decision and following up with a polite persistence rather than a bullying determination. All this with a smile and enthusiasm that knows no bounds!
This job description is a guideline only and is not exhaustive. We are a very small team and welcome everyone’s input when it comes to product development, promotional/marketing ideas and any creative ways we can move the company forward. You may, therefore, be asked to perform other duties which are not expressly listed here but are in keeping with the general purpose of your role and we reserve the right to make changes to this job description as appropriate.
Salary will be competitive and relative to experience, based on a base salary plus commission.
