UpCircle Careers | Coffee Collector
At UpCircle, we make sustainable skincare products from ingredients which would otherwise be discarded. We now repurpose more than ten by-product ingredients from varied industries, including the argan, tea, juice, date, olive and wood industries.
The original ingredient that inspired us to launch our brand was coffee, which we’ve been collecting from our coffee shop partners across London since day one. We’ve collected 350 tonnes of coffee so far, which has been meticulously processed by us, before being transformed into our signature coffee scrub range.
We’re now selling so many scrubs that we need someone to be specifically focused on helping us to collect and process the coffee, getting it ready to be sent of to our manufacturers who add in the rest of the ingredients.
Our “warehouse” location is our railway arch in Camberwell, South London and this is where the role will be based from. At the arch is a bicycle with a trailer. We need you to arrive at the Arch, collect the bike and cycle it from coffee shop to coffee shop. The coffee shops are all relatively local to the arch - Camberwell, Battersea, Clapham, Brixton, Dulwich, Herne Hill etc.
You would then cycle it back to the arch and begin the processing.
The main sorts of processing required are sieving, drying and sterilising. It’s physical work, but we’re proud that our products are made people instead of machines using simple methods. We do use some machines for mixing, but the bulk of our products are still simply made by real people. This enables us to monitor the process closely to ensure that the end result is skincare of the finest quality. Nothing slips through the net - quite literally!
We’re looking for someone self-motivated, energetic, independent, adaptable and efficient. The arch location is managed by Drew who will support you in your role. The rest of the team may be based in a different building, but we’re all working to achieve the same goal.
- Flexible hours
- Paid per hour, we anticipate this to be 3-4 hours per day
- Role is based in Westminster, London
- Start Date: Immediate
- Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK
