Barista Maestro:

We're Costa, the nation's favourite coffee shop brand*, pouring our heart and soul into everything we do and creating moments to remember for our customers, our communities and for each other.  Together we turn sips into smiles, choices into opportunities and passions into careers. Help us spread a little happiness!

About the role

As a Barista Maestro, you'll be a real Costa ambassador, keeping customer service at the heart of everything you do. Working closely with both the Store and Assistant Managers, you'll lead the shift in their absence and train and develop your team of Baristas so they are delivering truly memorable coffee experiences. This will include deploying the team effectively, identifying training opportunities, supporting on-the-job experiences, checking the quality of coffee and equipment and taking great pride in ensuring everything we do exceeds brand standards.

Who we're looking for

With a passion for training, coaching and, of course, coffee, you'll be an accredited Barista with a completed Barista Core Skills workbook. Keen to develop your career and take the next step as an Assistant Manager, you'll be a genuine role model, full of flair and with a real desire to take responsibility for the success of the store. If you have had experience of running shifts, we'll see that as a very nice bonus.

Bring us an ambitious, enthusiastic and confident approach, plus a real interest in our business, and in return we'll give you a starting wage of £8.48, plenty of benefits, and a whole lot of opportunity to develop and progress.


As a Barista, naturally you'll be serving expertly crafted coffee, but at Costa there's more to the role than that. Born of dedication, passion and pride, you'll deliver a coffee shop experience that is full of warmth, charm and community spirit. The kind of experience that will make customers smile and colleagues inspired.
Who we're looking for
Inspiring the world to love great coffee and never serving a dull cup, doesn't just happen. It takes a little crafting, testing and fine-tuning. That's why you'll need a zest for life and a passion for customer service. Your flexible approach will see you turn your hand to a multitude of tasks, whether it's making irresistible coffee, maintaining stock or encouraging customer feedback. While your willingness to learn, personable approach and ability to read our customers will have you delivering coffee experiences that are simply unbeatable.
