Who are we:

We believe that beans are, by every metric, the world's best food. Bold Bean Co began in 2020 with the aim to create a culture of bean obsessives. We have grown from supplying our loyal followers through direct orders to over 600 stockists including Waitrose, Booths and Wholefoods in just 2 years. We are a certified B-corp and winner of The Grocer Gold’s “Start Up of The Year” 2023. We are a purpose-driven brand, but a seriously ambitious one too, and you’d be joining us at an extremely exciting stage of growth.

Our values are:

- Trust the Taste: Believe in your ideas, your time and your talent, because we do. We don’t follow a recipe and don’t want you to either. We trust you to make the decisions, even if they turn out to be the wrong ones

- Be Full of Beans: Laugh, be positive and be passionate. Give this energy to everyone you interact with

- Be Hungry: Have an appetite to learn more, do more and be challenged. Hunt down your next opportunity

- One Pulse: There are no egos, everyone is aligned on the same mission with one heartbeat. Look after your body and mind to ensure you feel good, and look out for each other too

The role:
