Production Assistant

The Blending Room is looking for someone to join our production team. It’s a great opportunity for someone to begin a career in the coffee industry.

The role is initially for two days per week to help us manage our peak production times at our new roastery, off Hessle Road, Hull.

However, as we are a growing company, there will be plenty of scope to evolve the role, have access to other areas of the business as it develops and for it to become a full-time position. 

Please be aware that this role does not involve roasting coffee. 

Duties will include:

  • Weighing, grinding and packing roasted coffee
  • Picking orders and preparing them for dispatch
  • Dealing with ‘walk in’ customers
  • General maintenance of equipment and cleaning around the roastery
  • Delivering coffee
  • Regular tasting of coffee
  • General assistance around the roastery

Role Requirements:

We’re looking for someone who has a genuine interest in coffee and is happy to work as part of a small team in a growing business.  Previous experience is not required, as full training will be given.

You should be able to deal with a multitude of tasks, keep to schedule, be organised, diligent and also love solving problems. We love initiative, enthusiasm and are looking for someone who can communicate naturally, has a keen eye for detail and is confident about what they do.

You need to be competent using computers and should also have a full, clean driving licence.


Hours are 8.30am – 5.00pm with the possibility of some overtime.

The salary of £9.00 per hour will include several perks along with coffee on tap!
