Things to consider

The Hub is in Bodiam which is a rural location. An apprentice would need to be able to get to and from work without public transport.

We are a small friendly supportive team; we work hard to look after our staff here. We offer lunch as well as free tea and coffee. The work tends to be varied due to the nature of the business and different types of events we host here.

About the employer

Established in 2016, we try to offer a holistic service to the rural community. From the very fabric of the building The Hub is about sustainability and upcycling. The Hub was built from nearly entirely upcycled and reclaimed materials. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is our motto!

The Hub is a Café, functional shop, meeting place and venue designed to meet the needs of a small rural community, as well as guests to the village. We are open every day with some late evenings through the summer for pizza nights and pop-up kitchens!

We are a unique celebration of everything local. The products, the people and the place. Bringing these things together in one place, we aim to offer a great range of products show casting local Food & Drink, as well as arts, crafts, activities, experiences and even camping equipment that can’t be found anywhere else. Everything you find here (with the exception of maybe Paracetamol and Nappies) has a story to tell.

In bringing all these people together and building network that works in a collaborative way we aim to support and promote other small businesses like our own, as well as supporting  community projects and offering rural employment.

Providing a friendly service and amazing products and experiences in a fun, sustainable environment is incredibly important to us. We have followed in the footsteps of The Original Hut Company when creating The Hub.
