Basically it's what allows you to be paid directly by the cafes, and all our baristas have one! Just head over to www.abr.gov.au to get your ABN!

How would you describe your personality?
I am a bubbly, outgoing person who likes to meet new people

What are the preferred areas you would like to service? While we endeavour to offer shifts to baristas in their preferred areas please be aware that you will be expected to work shifts up to 45 minutes from your location via your chosen mode of transport. The more areas you can service, the more shifts you'll be offered! Easy.
CDB, Inner North, Inner South, Inner West, Inner East etc
Tell us how you plan on getting to the shifts you're booked for
I have my own reliable vehicle, so I can pretty much go to wherever the best shifts are!

Do you own a black shirt, a white shirt, black pants and black shoes? While it is not always necessary, some of the cafes using the service require a barista-partner to wear a black shirt or a white shirt. This often includes requiring to wear black pants and black shoes too.
That's no problem at all! I own a black shirt, a white shirt, black pants and black shoes
While I don't own all these things yet I will have them soon and will be able to wear them to all my shifts
