Work for HatHats

Ta'da - Here at HatHats Coffee Company we are always on the lookout for standout individuals who want to work in our exciting business and further their career. From those looking for some part time hours to fit around studies or childcare in our outlets  to more experienced candidates – we have potential roles that could be the perfect fit.

Being a finalist in the KEiBA 2018 awards for Employer f the year we think we have created a pretty awesome place to work, we are not just saying that some of our team feel the same to.



We are however a really fussy bunch and look for people who have something ‘HatHats’ about them, what that special something is cannot be written down, it is a passion for life and what they do that is infectious and a willingness to learn and jump out of their comfort zone is the type of person we love. Oh you must also have a passion for coffee and be as obsessed about customer service as we are and be prepared to make HatHats part of the fabric of the communities it serves. 

Even though at present there are no official open job roles, if you make us aware of your talent and enthusiasm – then we might create one just for you or even better you will be on our radar for the next time we hold one of our outlet recruitment events. 

What are your recruitment events?

Lorna is our head of people and culture and a few times a year (usually every couple of months) each outlet will hold a recruitment event where we invite everyone who want to work for us along to tell you a bit more about the business, who we are and where we are on our coffee journey.  If you are following us on social media you will see when each outlet is holding a recruitment event.

We are doing some work on our website and over time will post details on here as well!


What about jobs behind the scenes?

Well we are part of a bigger group of companies founded by serial entrepreneur Louis Hurst and most of our number crunching, HR and legal stuff as well as our marketing and PR is done at our Head office in Whitstable. If you are looking to join the back office team then you are best to stalk our social media streams and as and when these jobs become available we will alsoways post them there with details how to apply.

Urm … I am standout and I can’t wait for a recruitment event?

So, you’ve read this – got excited and thought they need me.  As first impressions are important, make sure you have a kick ass creative way to show us why you should be the person we hire then don’t be shy get on our radar by emailing or impress our Lorna.

 I work for a recruitment agency and I have the perfect person for you!

Sadly for our front of house staff we have a tried and tested recruitment events that work and helped us win shiny awards therefore we do not use agencies sorry. For more specialist back office staff we do use a few agencies who on our approved supplier list, this is handled by our super important commercial manager  Amy. We are a bit protective of her email so would recommend you call our head office on 01227 282902 and see if you can impress someone.
