Festive Cheesemongers (Cutting, Wrapping and Packing)

Christmas. A time for snowglobes, mulled wine and Cliff Richard. As if the season couldn’t get any better, it’s also a great time for cheese!

At Cheese HQ, the orders have already started for our famous Chrimbo selections so we need to get our groove on and start unearthing this year’s champion Cheesemongers, or as we like to call them: Cheese Whisperers. 

Why Whisperers? Because in a short space of time (it might be already), cheese will become your best friend. You’ll quickly find yourself whispering sweet nothings to a Tunworth or even scribbling love notes to a Comte. This is the sort of love and care for cheese that we’re looking for. Once you’re in that special relationship place, your primary focus will be cutting, wrapping and packing cheese.

We’re on the hunt for both part time and full time Whisperers who are able to start in November and work through to the New Year. We also have a couple of permanent positions that will need filling from January onwards if we’re a match made in heaven. 

We’re proud to be a London Living Wage Employer paying £10.55 per hour.

What we’re looking for in you
  • Love for cheese!
  • An enthusiastic and sociable attitude – we are a small and friendly team with a great working atmosphere…we are also smooth operators working like a well-oiled machine so anticipating the needs of others and thriving in a team environment is a must!
  • Diligence and care taken in every step of the cheese journey from fridge to box – we want you to love and care for the cheese as much as we do! Attention to detail is key here at Cheese Geek HQ.
  • Good listening skills and the ability to pick things up quickly – Communication is key! Things move swiftly when it comes to our cheese – it goes from fridge to box in the blink of an eye, so we need efficiency and great communication between all our geeks!
  • The ability to remain calm and efficient working in a fast paced environment – there can be a lot happening at once.
  • Ideally some experience working with food (even better if it’s cheese!)
  • As you’ll be sending out alcohol, you’ll need to be 18 or over
  • Love for cheese! (so important, we listed it twice)
Key Responsibilities
  • Operating equipment such as Cheese Wire Cutters, Knives and Slicers. You will be using our cheese slicers/knives to divide up wheels/blocks of cheese – this will require bags of care and adherence to our super important health and safety procedures.
  • Wrapping cheese with care and speed – not only does our cheese have to taste mega, it has to look mega too!
  • Packing our recklessly good-looking boxes with our mouth-watering cheese so that everything stays chilled and fresh for the journey ahead.

Cheese Ambassadors

Cheese has a magical quality. A whiff of Brie de Meaux or a nibble on some Gruyere, it happens. A cheesy grin begins to appear. Impossible to resist, we gave this feeling a name: Cheese Happy.

Now imagine holding the power to bestow Cheese Happiness on who you wish. This is your chance. This year, make people Cheese Happy and join us as a Cheese Ambassador.

This winter, we’re popping up at a bunch of locations across London to spread the happiness. It might be at Westfield one day or at a Clapham streetfood market the next. We’re looking for a team of Ambassadors who can become our event superheroes, running them from set up to take down.

The roles are part time (around 16hrs per week) with a focus on weekends. Usual event hours will be something like 10am-6pm Saturday and Sunday. Our event programme starts from September and will be each weekend through until the new year. 

We’re proud to be a London Living Wage Employer paying £10.55 per hour.

  • Ideally some experience working with food (even better if it’s cheese!) or at events
