With a company as busy as Pod, there are always good jobs to be had. Whatever your skill set, get in touch and we'll see what we can do for you.
There are five key roles
A passion for food, health and wellbeing goes a long way in this role, but an extra-large serving of personality and zest for life will do more than get your foot in the door. Team members make it happen at Pod, preparing the food, delivering happy, genuine customer service and keeping our Pod shops looking fresh, clean and inviting. This is where you’ll begin if you don’t have any previous experience.
As a Kitchen Manager you will play a crucial role in the day-to-day running of the food operation. You will contribute towards the success of your shop by producing great quality food and working as part of a team. You will make sure you and your team maintain the highest standards of cleanliness, safety and compliance with hygiene regulations at all times. What's more fun is the days out to food and drink festivals with your fellow Kitchen Managers from other Pods.
These guys are full of ambition. They support the General Managers and in doing so learn first-hand how to run a pod shop. They make sure that everything from the quality of the food, to the environment and service is top notch and that the team are happy and working well together.
Our General Managers run their pods as if they were their own businesses. Natural leaders, creative thinkers, diligent multitaskers, sales hungry and with first class interpersonal skills - they’ve rightfully earned their stripes. Supported by the central operations team, they drive their staff and shop towards our mission of providing the very best fast nutritious food experience available and are rewarded when they do. We’re more than just a little bit proud that many of our managers have been with us since the beginning, starting as team members or baristas. “I like the challenge of making pod a better business. I have fantastic support from my dedicated team, and a great relationship with HR in head office who offer brilliant development opportunities. We’re an amazing company, and what’s more – my weekends are free and we throw great parties!” One of our General Managers in our 2016 staff survey.
Our Coffee experts. Coffee is serious business at pod. We either carefully train a keen team member or put newcomers who’ve had a bit of barista experience through a specially curated scheme, ensuring every cup we pour is the very best it can be. “I get asked for anything and everything from non-fat, regular, lukewarm, skim, soy, extra strength, “my usual”, double froth; I love the challenge of delivering the best coffee in London to my customers’ thirsty hands, every day. What really makes me tick is mixing together a perfect shot – caramel coloured top and a mottled chocolate hue with a perfect pitcher of milk – smooth, fluffy, white and flawless. I could talk for hours about tasting different blends, sourcing beans, the grinding process; I never get bored of coffee.” One of our passionate Coffee Champions in our 2014 staff survey.
