Retail Cheesemonger (Part time, fixed term)

Are you looking for a job that requires you to eat cheese all day? Would you like to learn more about our mission to improve British cheese and become part of it? Are you passionate about good food and great service? Then we would like to hear from you!

We’re looking for an enthusiastic Cheesemonger to join our Retail team fixed-term from mid-August to the end of December. The successful candidate will work in our shops in Borough Market, Bermondsey, Covent Garden and Islington, with the possibility of occasional off-site work at markets and events. 

The position requires a full 9-hour shift per day and regular weekend work. We would initially be able to offer 3 days per week, moving to 5 days per week as business picks up closer to December. 

We are looking for positive, energetic people who enjoy the buzz and hard work of a busy shop environment. You will be sales and service focused. Though cheese experience would be an advantage, it’s not a necessity. Any retail or hospitality experience would also put you in good stead for the work.


  • Full weekend availability
  • Available to start in mid August
  • Full availability 1st-24th of December inclusive


  • An hourly rate of £11.05 per hour
  • Full on-the-job training
  • Free delicious staff lunches every day
  • A steady supply of fresh bread and cheese (of course!) as well as tea and coffee
  • A generous staff discount is offered to all employees including our seasonal team

To apply, please complete the form below ASAP as we are looking to fill this position soon.
