Are you a Black Sheep?

A Supervisor with an itch to shake up the established order and offer something new and exciting to customers everywhere? So do we! Maybe we can help each other out...

About Black Sheep Coffee...

Founded in 2013 when a group of friends decided to quit their jobs on the same day to " Leave The Herd Behind " and embark on a coffee mission of ridding the world of boring, average-tasting coffee. Up to a total of 37 stores, we are in the Top 10 Fastest Growing Companies in Britain.

Black Sheep Coffee is famous for launching the first 100% specialty grade robusta coffee and the only premium robusta bean on the market (X2 caffeine - get your buzz on!). Our Founders, Eirik & Gabriel, travel to origins throughout the year to source the best beans in the world. In fact, we are one of the few shop retailers that purchase our beans directly at the plantations, looking after the picking, drying, and washing process according to the strictest of guidelines - all in search of the perfect bean.

What's the role...

The supervisors are the cogs of the business, keeping everything running like clockwork. Keeping the team motivated, they are the driving force of team spirit and working together. Confident in taking the lead and decision making, they love driving sales and thrive under pressure. They are proud to champion our company values. Supervisors are self-motivated and one of our pathways to progressing into a General Manager. Supervisors are second in command in the absence of a General Manager.
