Full Time Cafe Manager 

Application Due: Dec 9, 2016

Ethical Bean Coffee is searching for a full time manager for our Vancouver café. As our one and only storefront, the café operates with the goal of showcasing not only our coffee, but our values as well. It’s a place for people to connect over great beverages and food while they learn about our past, present and future as a company. The café represents our mission to create the best fair trade, organic coffee possible, while keeping a strong focus on sustainability.

First and foremost, we’re looking for someone who shares our passion for taking care of people, as well as the planet. A positive and friendly attitude is a must. You’ll be the leader of a small crew, who all work together to make customers feel welcome and at home while visiting us. As most of our business comes from repeat customers, the manager should take an interest in getting to know the regulars. Remembering faces, names and favourite drinks can go a long way in improving a customer’s experience in our café, and maybe even their whole day.

Responsibilities and Experience

Duties as manager include, but are not limited to, managing our food and drink menu, placing daily bakery orders, placing weekly supply orders, scheduling staff, overseeing some café financials and ensuring that the café is operating smoothly and efficiently at all times. Aside from performing managerial duties, you will also spend a large portion of your day working alongside staff behind the counter. Responsibilities during this time will include taking orders from customers and handling cash, preparing food and drinks, helping to keep the café organized and clean and opening and closing when required.

Our store hours are Monday to Friday, 7am to 5pm. We’re looking for someone with full time availability within these hours.

Management experience as well as experience in a café environment (preferably operating a manual espresso machine) would be ideal, however we’re willing to train the right candidate. A valid driver’s license would be an asset.


Our café is the flagship entrance to our head office, roasting, and packaging facility located at 1315 Kootenay St, Vancouver.
