Welcome to our new website!

We also have a new opening for an assistant manager at Bigbury on Sea for someone looking for a year round permanent position. We will provide all the training although previous hospitalty experience would be helpful. You need to really enjoy working as part of a busy team and relish the buzz of success. There are, of course, times when we are pretty quiet so it isn't all busy busy. If you are interested and have a passion for making a difference please email michael@venuscompany.co.uk .

Venus is a dynamic sustainable business committed to looking after the environment and all those who work with us - either as an employee or a supplier. We value passion, hard work, fun and team work. We want to work with those who care about the impact their lives have on others and the planet. 

Our business is all about 'loving the beach'. Every single action has an impact and we strive to minimise the harmful effects, and maximise the positive effects, on our locality. We make most of our own products and cakes at Halwell kitchens to ensure we use only the finest quality and ethically sourced ingredients are used. 


First of all, you need to care what happens to our planet! Next, to love working in a team in a fast paced and friendly workplace. You need to enjoy the amazing buzz from the team working like a well oiled clock - each part working in unison.

We also look for those who want to make a difference. And for those who care about what they eat and where it comes from.

Above all you need to love people. To care for each and every customer as well as those in your team.


We recognise the challenges that hospitality presents. So our schedules are flexible and split shifts are non-existent. A life work balance is important and this means different things to different people.

Our pay rates will reward those who show an aptitude for all the jobs in the cafe. Our philosophy is to share our rewards with the Venus team - the Ohana (Hawaiian for family). Summer is our busiest time of the year and those who commit to that period with us will be recognised.
