|Founded in 1988, Abel & Cole is famous for its seasonal organic fruit & veg boxes. We deliver a wide range of fantastic organic food to people’s homes across much of England and South Wales. We represent a refreshing alternative to supermarket shopping, but without being worthy or preachy. No air freight, no silly packaging, no nasty chemicals – just great food produced by people who really love what they do. We deliver to around 80,000 households and we employ about 600 great people. We consider ourselves bold, irreverent, genuine, friendly and honest, and it is crucial that this comes across in all of our marketing.
We are firmly based in the market but always seek to develop new and refresh old ways of making our brand stand out. Tied in with this is a desire that has come up time and time again over the years, namely that of having a physical space that we can call our own. One step in this strategy is to launch our very own Abel & Cole Pop Up in September 2016. Food will be at the centre of this project and to this end we are now recruiting a temporary chef to work with the project manager to develop and lead the food element of our Pop Up. This is an exciting role where you’ll be able to have an influence on this brand new project. You will work alongside our in-house food team and translate their recipes to variations adapted to a commercial kitchen. Seasonal, organic and veg focussed (but not necessarily vegetarian) are key words when describing the food. This is a full-time role and shift patterns will include evenings and weekends once the Pop Up is up and running (office hours until then). There will be a Front of House or Restaurant Manager in place in time for the opening.
