Workshop Engineer Trainee (6 Months) Job at Tchibo Coffee – in Belfast

Job Description

About us:
Capitol Foods have been a registered company since 2003 and contrary to what our name might suggest, we are in the business of beverages. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, fruit juice – we’ve got it covered. We offer a selection of drinks brands as well as equipment and servicing.

We have partnered up with world class coffee equipment manufacturers to offer our customers a choice of cutting-edge coffee machines from traditional espresso machines to bean-to-cup machines plus the knowledge and expertise to deliver the best service to our customers.

Having worked closely with Tchibo Coffee for many years, in 2018 we were delighted to become part of the Tchibo group. In doing so, we have gained access to new brands and product ranges through closer associations with Matthew Algie and Expresso Warehouse who are also part of the wider Tchibo family.

We operate through a small team of dedicated staff based locally in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland which allows us to look after our customers across the Island. Our customers span a range of sectors including convenience, hospitality and contract catering.

To work with us is to join our European Family Business and help us continue to achieve excellence in all we do. Sounds good? Read on!
