A dream job that takes the biscuit

Organic family-run bakery on the Isle of Mull seeks a couple who are ready to ‘rise’ to the occasion and join their close-knit team of biscuit-makers.

Island Bakery Organics have two full-time jobs perfect for someone with a sweet tooth.  The positions will include all aspects of biscuit production, including weighing ingredients, baking, chocolate work, and packing. Unusually, the position also comes with private accommodation, making it perfect for a couple or two close friends keen to embrace island life.
A starting salary of £19,000-£22,000, plus the accommodation and potential overtime, no previous experience is required. There are also opportunities for further training and progression within the 34-strong team.
Stocked in Waitrose, as well as organic and deli stores across the UK, Europe, and the USA, the Island Bakery Organics’ range includes oatcakes, shortbreads, and favourites such as Lemon Melts and Chocolate Gingers.
With a population of just 3,000, the Isle of Mull is renowned for its wild and unspoilt landscapes and welcoming islanders.  Regularly topping rankings as one of the most beautiful places in the UK, picturesque Tobermory is recognised the world over thanks to iconic multi-coloured buildings along the harbour front.
Joe Reade, Director, Island Bakery Organics, said: “These positions are ideally suited for a couple or good friends, perhaps starting out in their careers in Scotland’s rich and diverse food industry. We’re a close-knit team, employing a number of local residents, but see this as an exciting opportunity to welcome some new faces and give them a real taste of island life.”
