Join Us on Our Journey

Join Our Team

The Quay Co-op is a positive and progressive workplace – and we are always busy! A worker’s co-operative, we have been established for forty years. Why not consider working with us, in our many areas of employment. 

Not only do our team run three busy health food shops in Cork City, Carrigaline and Ballincollig, we also have a food production kitchen and bakery, an online delivery service and when lifted restrictions allow, a popular and well-loved vegetarian restaurant. 

So many of our fabulous colleagues have been with us for several years and have grown and developed with The Quay Co-Op as it transformed from its early beginnings in 1982 to its current position as one of Cork’s well-established employers of choice. 

We are constantly involved with our educational partners, UCC and CIT, on work placements, student lectures and site visits and sponsorship programmes and our unique position in Cork as both a cooperative and a health food business means we are aiming to help develop the next generation of Quay Coop stars. 

We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic, health food loving people who want to work in a cooperative and friendly environment so stay tuned! – any job vacancies will be posted here.
