The Cavan Bakery was founded by David Cavan in 1929. Today the business employs over 130 colleagues, extends to a growing number of 10+ bakery shops, a café and serves over 100 wholesale customers. Throughout this time, quality, taste, pride and passion have ensured our longevity and we believe we are as relevant in the 2020s as we were in the 1920s.

Here at Cavan Bakery, we have a very keen eye on the future – developing and innovating new products, opening more shops, selling through our wholesale partners and taking our offerings online. We are seeking a passionate and experienced Artisan Baker who will be responsible for assisting our production team.

Candidates must possess the communication, organisational, leadership and motivational skills that this role demands.
