Careers at Birds

Join the family
Bakers working in the kitchen

Birds is flying high. And we’re always looking for people to join our nest.

We’re a hard-working team, and a real cross-section of the community, each learning a bit more about baking every day. There are veteran team-members and newer recruits, dads and daughters, mums and sons. And from our rhubarb crumbles in January to our Christmas mince pies, we take pride in everything we put our name to, all year round.

If you’d like to join our team, be sure to check back here often. All our vacancies are listed on this page as soon as they become available.

To apply, please upload your CV and covering letter as Word or pdf documents. Our vacancies are popular so it’s not possible to reply to every applicant. If you’re successful, you’ll hear back from us within four weeks. Good luck!


There’s a long tradition at Birds of learning on the job. And every year we advertise for apprentices to work in our bakery and confectionery section. We have also recruited apprentices for maintenance roles in the past.

Successful applicants are usually over 18 (due to the need to use certain equipment), but we especially welcome applications from older people, with other job experience.
