Role title: Operations and Quality Executive

Reporting to: Supply Manager

Location: based in Spain (Working remotely) and trips to the UK when needed

Department: Operations

Salary: Competitive

Who we are:

We are on a mission to make you OBSESSED with beans by giving you THE BEST of beans.

We believe that beans are, by every metric, the world's best food. Bold Bean Co began in 2021 with the aim to create a culture of bean obsessives. We have grown from supplying our loyal followers through direct orders to over 1000 stockists including Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Ocado and Wholefoods in just 3 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 an ambitious one too - we aim to have thousands of stockists all over the UK and Europe. Our journey started in Spain, where Amelia first tried a judión de la granja during her Erasmus in Madrid. She was amazed by the quality - and decided to bring this incredible tasting bean back to the UK. Turns out that bean was delicious because of two things - the expert sourcing - but also from the cooking method found in the conservas tradition. That’s why we still produce our award-winning beans in Spain and are looking for someone to help manage our supply chain here.

This is a great opportunity to work for a fast-growing, British company working towards a healthier and more sustainable future. We value flexibility and want to source the very best talent, and that’s why we’re a remote first business. Four times a year, we bring the whole company together for incredible company retreats in beautiful places in Spain, the UK or somewhere in Europe to help us feel connected and, of course, have fun!
