About Us

Round Corner Pizza was founded under the guidance of Marco Fuso, one of the world's foremost pizza chefs. We make our doughs and pizzas from raw natural ingredients and our Neapolitan style pizzas cooked in our high spec pizza container kitchen are adored by visitors to our multi award winning brewery. RCB Pizza has a 5 star hygiene rating and a legion of dedicated followers built up since our first pizza was served in May 2021.

Job Description

We are looking for someone to join our pizza team who is passionate about food (and ideally beer), hospitality and ensuring customers love them and their product. Our objective is to run a friendly venue that people want to come back to again and again.

Round Corner Pizza currently operates on Friday evenings and on Saturdays with some prep work needed on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. The hope is to expand these opening hours (to Sunday afternoons and Wednesdays evenings) based on demand. There is the occasional private party on other days.

This is a part time role and could be suited to someone working another job during weekday hours.

Successful candidates will be expected to learn from our existing pizza makers and workers, then execute with consistency on how to make doughs, prove and store them, stretch, roll and top them, cook in our Italian pizza oven and serve to customers.

Pizza makers often interact with customers in an open kitchen environment and so a great customer manner is important, as is the ability to cooly handle occasional peaks in volume and customer feedback. Once up and running, the chef will feed into the menu and future direction of RCB Pizza.

Skills Required
• Passion for food and for making people happy.

• Attention to detail and providing both the highest quality product but also a consistent experience whenever someone orders.

• High levels of enthusiasm and energy for pizza making and for working collaboratively with the rest of the Pizza, Taproom and Brewery team with a focus on making every visitor's trip to Round Corner Brewing special.

• Shows initiative and motivation to get the job done and push Round Corner Pizza forward. Sufficiently so, that you are capable of working the pizza offering alone once training is complete.

• Initially working Friday evenings and Saturday afternoon into evening. Will expand subject to what hours you can do, when you can reliably make doughs and hours of opening expansion as we grow. We will work with the successful candidate to build the role around our needs and theirs.

    What We're Offering
    At Round Corner Pizza, we offer not only the hourly rate below plus food and beer allowance,  but also an amazing training experience so that you will be able to make (from scratch) some of the best pizza in the UK. And subject to proving your broader business knowledge, to helping drive RCB Pizza forward from menu design, pricing and business development.
    Work in a fun and fast paced environment and in an independent business that has big aspirations and know that you are part of a team where craft means the pursuit of perfection.

    • Discounted or free food
