CAREERS WITH KABABJI


What are you looking for in applicants?

We’re looking for enthusiastic, outgoing people that have a passion for food, great customer service and want to work in a fast-paced, highly energetic environment. We pride ourselves in our service, our people and our product. You will have to have a basic understanding of working in a restaurant or café environment and have a good level of spoken and written English.


I don’t know much about SandwichEs and the different types of Lebanese Cuisine.
Will this be a problem?

Our training is tailored to your role, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about how to make amazing fresh, healthy sandwiches and mezze. If you’re genuine, get stuck in and like to have fun, then you’ll fit right in with the Kababji family. We will require you to have a basic understanding of working in a restaurant or café environment though.


What’s it like working at Kababji?

Your day-to-day is so varied that you’ll never get bored working here. Everyone plays a role in making Kababji a fun place to work and enjoying your job is important to us – after all, we work here too! We won’t promise you that it’s easy but we do always strive to ensure everyone is supported, learns a great deal and is surrounded by positive people.


What hours will I be working?

Our restaurants have different opening hours so your shifts can be varied. Generally, we’re open all week from late morning (11am-ish) to late evening (11pm-ish) and shifts may vary depending on your role. We’re incredibly flexible so it usually means we can accommodate particular requests such as working around school or family.


What uniform do I wear?

We’re not about the suits and ties at Kababji! We want you to look great, but also feel comfortable. We supply all crew with our fun branded Kababji T-shirts, an apron and a cap. Please see uniform policy.


What happens after I’ve applied?

We’ll review your application and if successful, you’ll get a call or email inviting you to an interview. As we receive a lot of applications, we can’t get back to everyone, so if you haven’t heard from us within 7 days then please assume your application was unsuccessful.


What’s the application process like?

Depending on the role you’re applying for, there will likely be a phone interview, face-to-face interview and usually a trial shift. We’re a friendly bunch at Kababji so there’s no need to be nervous and we’ll tell you everything you need to know during the interview process. You’ll have a chance to ask us questions to ensure this is the right place for you too. The trial shift helps both of us decide if this role is the right fit and it gives you a chance to meet the team and have a taste of what your working day will be like. 


Can I apply for a role at Head Office?

Yes of course. Keep an eye on our current vacancies section and apply for the Head Office roles as they come up. If the role you’d like to apply for isn’t listed, simply fill out the application form and select ‘other’ in the role section. We’ll then contact you directly.


There’s no advertised role for my area, can I still send you my CV?

Yes of course. Please send to join_us@kababji.co.uk stating the location you would like to work at and the site will be notified of your application. If they have some positions available we’ll get in touch, alternatively, with your permission, we’ll hold your CV for 3–6 months.


I noticed you’re opening / opened a new store in my area. How do I apply for a job?

Please send your CV to join_us@kababji.co.uk stating the location you would like to work at. The site will be notified of your application. Sometimes we won’t start recruiting or getting back to requests until a week or two before opening so hold tight and we’ll be in touch ASAP.
