Wanted: Baker or Bakers Apprentice
With Bread is looking for a passionate individual who is interested in baking to join our small team to help with our weekly bake for the Yellowknife Farmers Market.
From June to September With Bread services the Yellowknife Farmers Market every Tuesday evening with a selection of mostly naturally leavened and specialty bread, such as focaccia and baguettes.
With Bread is a small flexible micro-bakery with a limited but dedicated baking space that allows us to be flexible based on our customer’s requests. Each week we bake approximately 160 loaves of bread, plus baguettes, flatbreads, mini-sourdough loaves and cinnamon rolls.
With the addition of a second person, we are looking at improving our current baking schedule and expanding into other areas and products.
Who are you?
You are someone who enjoys working with your hands and is passionate about baking bread and interested in helping operate a small scale bakery/farmers market operation. You might have previous experience baking, either at home, school or professionally, but you might also be interested in learning from scratch. You must be a self-starter who can eventually look at a task list and be able to complete duties relatively unsupervised.
What is the time commitment?
For starters, you need to be available on Tuesday throughout the summer. From there we can determine a schedule that best fits the baking schedule. A typically Tuesday has us starts at 5 am, with the last loaves coming out of the oven at 1 pm, with just enough time for them to cool and be at the market to setup for 3:30 pm.
There is potential for additional hours on Monday, to be determined though.
What is the compensation?
Compensation will depend on your level of experience, but we’re looking at $18/hour.
What else will you get out of working with With Bread? You will gain the knowledge and experience of being involved in production level baking. You will see how to plan, schedule and bake bulk qualities of bread with limited equipment. You will learn how temperature, weather, and ingredients affect different breads. You will learn how certain bread differentiates from others and how to mix, shape, proof and bake them all.
If interested, the opportunity to grow within With Bread is available for the right person.
