    Calling all freelance baristas!

    If you’re a great team player and have a passion for speciality coffee, let’s chat! We work with baristas all over the country, so if you’re a freelance barista looking for some extra shifts, we’d love to hear from you.

    We’re a Leeds based mobile coffee company providing espresso bars for clients at exhibitions and events in major cities throughout the UK and Europe. We are a young, fast-growing, and ambitious company recognised for our personality and industry-leading customer service as well as the quality of our coffee.

    You will:

    • Travel to venues with us as and when required. We work across the UK so are always on the lookout for baristas around the country who can join us at events local to them.

    • Enjoy travel. We work throughout the UK and occasionally in major European cities, so a love of visiting new places is a big plus!

    • Produce our usual high standard of coffee and other beverages, to our specs and recipes.

    • Be polite, chatty, friendly and accommodating. We pride ourselves on our “professional with personality” approach, so exemplary customer service is a must.

    • Represent The Barista whilst always upholding our fantastic reputation. This includes wearing our uniform.

    • Ideally, be passionate about speciality coffee, as well as friendly and sociable. Previous experience in hospitality is advantageous.

    In return, we can offer:

    • A good hourly rate of pay, alongside food and travel expenses. We pay our freelancers quickly, so freelancing for us is a perfect way to make extra money fast.

    • Opportunities to travel if this interests you. You could be paid to travel all around the UK attending events, or even visit a European city with us.

    • A friendly team atmosphere. All our freelancers work with at least one full-time member of the team who will oversee running the event, and at busier events may work with other freelancers. We’re proud that many new friendships have been made within our team and network of freelance baristas.

    • A well-organised and positive company culture. Our freelancer feedback is continuously positive, and we pride ourselves on our industry-leading clear, efficient and upfront approach.

    If this sounds like the opportunity for you, please fill out the form below to tell us a bit about yourself.
    We’re looking forward to hearing from you!

      Great service, great coffee, great guys. A lot more than just great coffee; our customers repeatedly comment on how much The Barista added to their stands beyond just serving hot drinks.
