WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN THE LATORTA TEAM?

Every now and then we are looking for new people to join the Latorta team. If you would like to be considered for a position in our retail store or cake decorating school, we welcome your application at any time.

The type of people we are looking for will need to hit the ground running, as you cannot learn the huge amount of cake decorating knowledge we need to share with our customers, simply on the job - this knowledge really needs to be pre-learned. You will need to be a cake decorator, working at a professional standard (not necessarily being paid for your cakes, but cakes that are worthy of high praise and recognition). You will need to be really passionate about cake decorating and/or other sweet creations (cookies, chocolate etc etc). Prior retail experience is not essential - we can teach you that in a few weeks. An impressive amount of cake decorating knowledge is essential, however.


HOW TO APPLY:

  • Please write an introductory letter
  • Include your resume - a resume tailored to the unique services that Latorta offers will get our attention.  A generic resume that has been given to all the retailers in the Centre, will not.  
  • Include some photos of the cakes you have made (or direct us to a website/facebook page that showcases your work) - this one is super important!! A picture tells us a great deal about your cake knowledge and the application of that knowledge.
  • Your application can be dropped off at the Latorta shop, or emailed to accounts@latorta.com.au

 If your application has captured our attention, we shall contact you to chat further.  All applications are treated with the utmost confidentiallity.
