Every now and then, positions in our small team at LABOUR AND WAIT become available. What we look for in a candidate is passion, 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. This we try to keep as it generates a particular chemistry that we enjoy and that brings something special to LABOUR AND WAIT.

If you are interested in working with us, be you 18 or 80, find our current vacancies listed below.
