Job description

About Urban Jungle:

Urban Jungle is not your typical coffee shop. Nestled within our lush and vibrant plant nursery, our coffee shop offers an extraordinary work environment surrounded by the beauty of nature. We're not just a team; we're a family of plant enthusiasts dedicated to creating an exceptional experience for our customers.

Position Overview:

We are seeking a skilled and passionate Cafe Assistant to join our team at Urban Jungle. As a Cafe Assistant, you will play a pivotal role in crafting exceptional coffee experiences for our customers. You'll run the coffee shop independently, though our close-knit nursery team steps in to assist during peak periods. This is a unique opportunity to work in an environment where greenery is a part of your daily backdrop.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Prepare and serve a variety of coffee and tea beverages with precision and care.
  • Provide friendly and efficient customer service, ensuring an exceptional experience for all guests.
  • Maintain a clean and organised coffee shop space.
  • Handle transactions and operate the cash register accurately.
  • Assist with stock management and restocking of coffee shop supplies.

What We Offer:

  • Hourly rate of £10.50.
  • Opportunity for significant monthly bonuses during our busy season.
  • 50% discount on plants for all staff members after 3 months.
  • Participation in our staff training program, nurturing your inner plant enthusiast.
  • A vibrant and dynamic work environment surrounded by greenery.
  • A minimum of 30 hours a week and the possibility of up to 40 hours during peak seasons.
  • Free staff parking, making your commute a breeze.


  • Prior barista experience is preferred but not mandatory; we are willing to train the right candidate.
  • Exceptional customer service skills.
  • Fast and efficient work ethic, with the ability to work independently.
  • A passion for plants and a desire to learn more through our training program.
  • A positive attitude and a love for working as part of a team.
  • Flexibility to work weekends and holidays as needed.

At Urban Jungle, we believe that a cup of coffee can brighten someone's day, just as a new plant can bring joy and life to a space. If you're ready to embark on an exciting journey where you'll be surrounded by nature every day and have the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally, we'd love to hear from you.

Join us in creating an extraordinary coffee experience in the heart of our lush plant nursery. Apply today and become a part of the Urban Jungle family!
