Artisan Baker

Bakeri Baltzersen are looking for an experienced baker to join our team at our bakery at Kettlesing Head - 7 Miles outside Harrogate.

Bakeri Baltzersen bakes a range of long fermented sourdough loaves, rye, ciabatta and more traditional yeasted white and granary style loaves/rolls and laminated dough products from scratch.

We are a growing bakery with a balance between supplying our own cafe and bakery shops and providing wholesale supply to many of the best cafes and coffee shops around Leeds, Harrogate and the surrounding areas.


As an experienced baker you’ll already understand the process of feeding a starter, bulking this up and then mixing and shaping loaves. You will be able to scale recipes up using bakers percentages and have an understanding of judging proof of sourdough and yeasted products.

You will have extensive experience of producing viennoiserie products at scale and will be able to bring new eyes to our existing processes.

It is important that you have an eye for detail and are prepared to take responsibility for producing consistent products to a high standard

Last year we completed the renovation of an adjacent building which will allow us to split the bakery into separate bread and pastry rooms. We have lots of new equipment to bring into our production, a chilled pastry room to help maintain consistency of the bakes throughout the year and more comfortable facilities for the team.

**If you don't have the kind of experience we're describing above we are also advertising a Trainee Baker role so, if you're keen to learn and willing to start at the entry level for bakers, you would be better placed applying for that.**


Join our team of 9 full-time bakers plus our packing and delivery crew.


We are open 7 days/week with shifts in various patterns from 8am to 10pm. We understand that allowing more people to work daytime and into the early evening is preferable so we already skew shifts to those times and are looking at how we can offer even better shift patterns in the future.

There is no access to the bakery site via public transport so applicants must have the ability to get to work by their own transport.


This position is a full-time post offering a minimum of 37.5 hours per week.

Job Types: Full-time, Permanent

Starting salary £25,000 per year
