Cake Baker

We are looking for someone to join our team at the bakery to work under our Head of Cake baking/decorating cakes, cookies and traybakes.

About Us

Bakeri Baltzersen is a wholesale and retail bakery based at Kettlesing Head - 7 Miles outside Harrogate.

In 2022 we finished the refurbishment of an adjacent building which has allowed us to split the bakery into separate bread and pastry rooms. We have lots of relatively new equipment and a nice space in which to work.

You'll be joining a team of around 11 full-time bakers who are really great at what they do. We bake for around 100 wholesale partners plus our two shops and a cafe.

The Role

We offer a range of traybakes, loaf cakes and cookies to our wholesale partners. Baking and decorating these items will be the bulk of your role.

The plan is to refine existing products and add more lines over the next 12 months, so you will be able to contribute to product development.

The cake team are a small team which we plan to grow - but for now you'll need to have a highly organised approach to complete the work required. You will need to be able to follow recipes and often work without direct supervision.

Naturally you will need to comply with all food hygiene and health and safety requirements as well as carry out cleaning tasks as you operate throughout the day and as directed by bakery leaders.

We're ideally looking for someone with experience of baking in a commercial setting or previous work in commercial kitchens.


We are looking for someone to work 5 days across the week from Sunday to Thursday, but we would consider part-time applicants.  The bakery gets busier the later the day runs so an early start is ideal between 7am and 8am.

There is no access to the bakery site via public transport so you must have the ability to get to work by car.


The pay for this position is from £11.44/hr


Holidays are calculated on an hourly basis at Baltzersen’s and you accrue holiday for every hour you work.
