Join our Journey!

We are now almost a year in - and sadly a few of our team are heading back to the homeland, so we are looking for new staff! 

Do you love the Nordic lifestyle, and have a passion for Nordic design, food and fika culture?

Blåbär are looking for enthusiastic team players to join our new and exciting Nordic café and design store in Putney, South West London. We are looking for part time staff (up to 15 hours per week).

Blåbär, featured in Elle Decoration UK, is bringing new Nordic culture to South West London, selling unique homeware and accessories from up and coming designers, vintage furniture and our own branded products all in a café environment serving great coffee, open sandwiches and fika.

We need entrepreneurial and self-motivated people who want to embark on this adventure with us. This is a great opportunity to learn and grow with a start-up, to test new ideas and be given responsibility. You will need to work hard and the job involves food preparation, serving coffee and customer facing sales. As it is a small company we need enthusiastic and flexible all rounder’s who are happy to jump in where needed. We are open both weekdays and weekends, so there will be early mornings and long days (opening hours are Monday to Saturday 8 – 18 and 9 – 17 on Sundays). Weekend work is essential to the job, so please only apply if you are able to work one or both days.
