Think the smooth running of the bar is the bartenders’ jobs? Think again. Because as any London bartender knows, the bar back is one of the most vital bar staff roles there is. So how can you make the role your own?


What makes a bar back a Hero?


Anticipation: Experienced bartenders don’t become experienced bartenders without having a quality bar back in their corner. For you, anticipation and organisation are your greatest weapons. You don’t have to be told when the ice is running low, when the garnishes need replenishing or when there’s a backup bottle needed over by the optics – you spotted it and sorted it ages ago.


Experience as a bartender: You may not be the member of the bar staff team responsible for serving the drinks, but if you have the know-how and the ability to step in at the last minute, you can make yourself even more valuable.


Know your team: It’s one of a bar back’s greatest challenges: how do you anticipate the needs of your bartenders when you’re a temporary worker who doesn’t know how they work or what they expect? That’s where communication comes in – with the right interpersonal skills, you can build the relationships that ensure you’re up to speed and making a real difference, fast.

Bar staff jobs in London – the Q&A


Can I choose my hours?

Yes. Naturally, if you are targeting bar work in London, your availability will need to dovetail with bar opening hours, but as our opportunities span a broad range of establishments, you should find plenty to match your availability. And the greater your availability, the more opportunities will likely come your way.


Where will I be working?

If it has a bar, you could working there. Naturally, that could include restaurants and bars, but it may also include hotels, events and private members’ clubs. You’ll be managing bar stock and supporting the bar in variety of award winning and other locations.


Could I become a full time bar support?

Full time work isn’t what Staff Heroes is about – not least because for a great many of our Heroes, part time and temporary work that suits their other jobs, studies and commitments is the very best thing about working with us.


However, we have had plenty of occasions where a single shift expands to several, or to a semi-regular situation. Join our team in the role of barback to unlock many opportunities.

"Recruiting temp staff in the hospitality industry is a massive headache for everyone, yet nothing has been done about it from a technology standpoint. Temp Staff turnover is significant creating high recruitment costs and this area is screaming for innovation. Staff Heroes have got it spot on and are on to something which is going to be big

Olly Etridge - First Restaurant Group

"The admin and wasted time from recruiting and managing temp staff is a big problem for all pubs and restaurants. Having an agency in the middle is not ideal as it causes friction and delays... and obviously there are costs involved. If Staff Heroes can provide temp staff on demand and automate the supply and management end to end then they are going to be massively successful

Bruce Newman - SA Brain and Company Ltd

"Many hospitality businesses are still turning to traditional channels such as job boards for temp staffing. This is only one step in the end to end temporary staffing solution and if Staff Heroes can automate from sourcing to payroll this will save everyone a huge amount of time, leaving us to get on with our jobs. A huge improvement for temp staffing!
