About Employer

Caffe Nero are a national, award winning coffee shop chain.
Making great coffee takes some doing. So, they built their own Roastery and created a unique award-winning coffee blend (they regularly work on developing new and interesting blends too). And, importantly, they set up an espresso training school – where all our Baristas master the art of coffee making.
This has led to the family owned and operated business opening more than 800 coffee houses across Europe.
