Join the team!


Whether it’s the addiction of our awesome coffee, the buzz of being part of a small, friendly passionate team or you dream of becoming a coffee guru … a barista god to many.

It could be that you just like being part of a company that is committed to the communities it serves and doing some good as well as having some fun along the way.

To us, we hope it will be a mixture of them all, either way we want to hear from you.

Why ..

We re getting bigger, we are on the verge of being able to announce some exciting news which will see HatHats grow a little bit more.

We are therefore on the hunt for some awesome people to join our small friendly team.

We have a number of roles (Full Time / Part Time / Casual) at our site in Reculver, we also have an Apprenticeship opportunity working on our classic little Coffee Van ‘ Hattie’ as well as at our Head Office in Whitstable.

So who are we looking for?

If you have a habit of sleeping through your alarm, turning up late, not being bothered about what you do at work, or not fulfilling your agreements please DO NOT APPLY!!! … Ever.

However, if on the other hand you are well presented, super reliable and have a passion for good coffee, obsess about customer service as much as we do and have a willingness to learn new things, you sound like our kind of person.

You may have other commitments in your life, such as college or university, you may be a parent looking for work around school hours or just looking for work around your other life commitments.

All we ask is that when you commit to a shift with us you stick to it, flakey people won’t last long in our company.

What’s in it for you?

Well apart from wearing our funky navy blue and grey uniform, we will give you some amazing barista training as well as training on our teas, smoothies and other products.

We will power you through every shift with as much of our Coffee as you can drink and give you a 30% discount on all our products when you’re not working.

Not only that, you will have a say in the good causes we support throughout the year. We give over 20% of our profits away to causes in the community and you will have your say with the rest of the team on where this money is spent.

If that wasn’t enough you get to work in a small friendly team.

Oh and the pay, whilst we admit its not like winning the lottery we pay everyone more than the living / minimum wage set out by the government and your rate of pay will depend on your age.

Lets hook up?

So you have read all of the above and the thought of wearing a HatHats Name badge fills you with excitement and tonight after you have sent your application off you will probably have a dream about learning latte art.

Well then we want to hear from you. Go on tell us about yourself we’d love to hear your story.

Oh… Did we mention we were fussy? Well we only want the best of the best to join our team. So the application process goes like this:-

  • You send us an email about you and we’ll ping you details back about our next recruitment event.
  • You’ll them come along to a group presentation where we will explain a lot more about us and you can ask some questions. Treat this like a first date.
  • If the first date goes well, it will be up to you if you want to see us again. All you need to do is send back the application form we will give you during the presentation and when we get that back we will ask you in for a chat / interview. This will be the more in depth second date.
  • If we are all still happy at the end of the interview, then you’ve scored and we will offer you a place on one of our training days. We can’t give you any work until you have completed training.
  • We have 2 different training days, one which is mandatory for all staff is our shift training, where we will teach you everything you need to know on our van. The second is an intensive Barista course where you will learn to make amazing coffee and a lot about our blend from the Roaster. We will only let you loose on the Espresso machine once you have completed this course.

So what you waiting for? Go on grab a cuppa and ping us an email now  or use the form below- please allow a few days for a response. We aim to respond to everyone!

Oh if you need a bit more convincing, we will let your future colleagues try and do it in just over 1 minute!
