A bit about The Cheese Geek
We do cheese. But better.
The self styled Modern Cheesemonger, we operate purely online sending out recklessly good looking boxes filled with award winning cheese. Billed as the Netflix of Fromage, our sweet spot is subscriptions where we’re able to lead merry customers on a journey through the cheese universe.
Whilst we’re official ‘cheese heads’, in reality we dance on the line between cheese and technology. Great cheese has been around for donkey’s years - but we’re now taking it to the masses with some of the smartest tech around. We’ve rather handily coined this ‘Cheesetech’. Think proprietary software to allocate cheese...and the world’s first cheese purchasing app.
We’ve grown fast since starting out from our own kitchen just over 3 year ago. Now based in Raynes Park, we’re sending out literally tonnes of cheese each month - enough to class us in the high growth startup category. But we’re not stopping there. 82% of the UK population eat cheese each week...we’re on a mission to get more of these people eating better cheese.
Simply put, our ambition is to be game-changers, and to take cheese retail to a new level. Think cheese, think The Cheese Geek.
Cheese Whisperers (Cutting, Wrapping and Packing)
At Cheese Geek HQ we have orders going out at quite a clip so we're on a mission to unearth some champion cheesemongers, or as we 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 part time or full time whisperers who are able to start ASAP!
Contract Length: 4 months
We’re proud to be a London Living Wage Employer paying £10.85 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)
- 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.
