Voluntary Work Experience at Ms. Cupcake
Please note, we are now accepting applications for placements commencing January 2018 onwards.
Who we are:
Ms. Cupcake is London’s first entirely vegan bakery and is based in Brixton, South West London. Each day in our open-plan kitchen we make cupcakes, layer cakes, cookies, muffins, squares, sandwiches, savoury treats and more. Everything is always 100% vegan and additionally we make lots of products without gluten.
We have two teams at Ms. Cupcake, our shop/bakery team at our store in central Brixton (five minutes from the tube and train station) and our office team located at our off-site office (also in Brixton). Depending on which Internship you apply for, you will be working alongside one of those teams.
What we offer:
We want to enable you to learn what you want to learn at Ms. Cupcake, so we offer three different intern programmes:
- Bakery Assistant Intern (based at our Brixton shop)
- Customer Service Intern (based at our Brixton shop)
- Office Assistant Intern (based at our Brixton office)
At the start of your internship our managers will meet with you to determine what you would like to learn during your time with Ms. Cupcake. We will then design a programme of training around your needs for the duration of your internship.
Internship placements are offered on a part time basis (for a minimum of 3 days a week). Generally, the shifts would be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays – but this can be flexible if needed – especially if you have a certain amount of ‘intern hours’ you need to log as part of your studies. Internship placements generally last for 4 consecutive weeks, but again we can consider longer placements. All Internships are unpaid, however a vegan lunch will be provided during your shift if you wish. Additionally, in certain cases we can offer a daily contribution to your travel expenses. These cases are usually reserved for people doing full-time internships as part of their studies.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for friendly, enthusiastic and reliable individuals who are looking to understand the inner workings of a vegan business and how we produce decadent ‘free from’ baking. Experience is not necessary, but passion is!
Currently we can only provide Internship placements for people aged 18 or older.
How to apply:
If you would like to be considered for one of our Internships then please submit your completed application form to us at firstname.lastname@example.org Feel free to send us some pictures of your work or a link to any online blog or social media page that you would like us to see.
Internships can start at any time throughout the year, but generally we can only manage one Intern at a time. Once your application has been received we will see if we can meet your needs and we will contact successful applicants to arrange an interview and trial.
