Why join CSONS?


We like to think we’re a pretty decent employer. Here’s a few reasons why;

  • You’ll get to work with some of the finest local produce creating and serving honest, unpretentious dishes that shout about the ingredients and are all about the excitement of global flavours. It’s soul food, food that people want to eat and get pleasure from eating.
  • We have fun while we work. You already know that working in this industry is hard, so why make it harder by not making it enjoyable. There’s no bad attitudes or dictators here, just a positive team that wants to shizzle their customers and have a laugh when they can.
  • We recently sent out anonymous questionnaires to ask what everyone thought of work at CSONS. One of the questions we asked was; Why do you keep on working for CSONS? Answers included “It’s like a family”, “It’s my favorite job I’ve ever had”, “The support I receive”, “The teamwork”, “Everyday is different”, “It’s an ethically run business”, It’s commitment to reponsibly produced food”, “Outstanding coffee and staff food”, “Approachable and open minded management”.
