Every now and then, positions in our small team at LABOUR AND WAIT become available. What we look for most in a candidate is politeness and attention to detail. Often life experience and demeanour will outweigh work experience and a university degree when it comes to choosing our colleagues. Over the years we have kept a varied team, ranging from young undergraduates to the retired. We find this generates a particular chemistry that brings something special to LABOUR AND WAIT.

If you are interested in working with us, find our current vacancies listed below. 


The role of the General Assistant is to provide our shop and online customers with a strong, personal and nuanced style of customer service and to assist in the day to day running of our shop on Redchurch Street and Workroom in Bethnal Green. You will be expected to serve customers, unpack boxes of stock, pack online orders and organise our stock rooms.

This position is two days a week (possibly two and a half depending on availability). Monday working is a requirement with a flexibility on weekend days.

If you are interested, please email Tom your CV and a brief cover letter in the body of the email:
