Things to consider

As a Barista Apprentice you will work a minimum of 30 hours per week, you may be asked to work up to 40 hours a week (£6.70 - £7.20 per hour). This is a physically demanding role in a fast paced environment. There will also be early starts so you will need to live close to the store or have access to transport. The National Minimum Wage for Apprentices is £3.30 per hour (From October 1st 2016 this will be increasing by 3% to £3.40 per hour). This is the legal minimum pay per hour applying to 16-18 year old apprentices and those aged 19 and over in the first year of their apprenticeship. For apprentices 19 or over who have completed their first year and are continuing their apprenticeship, the National Minimum wage appropriate to their age applies.

About the employer

It happens millions of times each week – a customer receives a drink from a Starbucks barista – but each interaction is unique. It’s just a moment in time – just one hand reaching over the counter to present a cup to another outstretched hand. But it’s a connection. We make sure everything we do honours that connection – from our commitment to the highest quality coffee in the world, to the way we engage with our customers and communities to do business responsibly. From our beginnings as a single store nearly forty years ago, in every place that we’ve been, and every place that we touch, we've tried to make it a little better than we found it. Starbucks is a responsible company. We use 100% Fairtrade espresso beans, have partnerships with youth charities whilst being involved with local community support. At a larger scale we work with our C.A.F.E. Practices which is good for our coffee and partners we work with.
